Tried it already - doesn't work well at all. Depending on the camera
model, Martin Microscope
might make an adapter for your camera that you can put right into the
eyepiece socket instead of the ocular. This has worked reasonably well
although can be a little awkward at times, especially to check the
specimen before clicking the shutter. Trinocular or side mount adapters
are the best approach since you can view the specimen and take the
photo. The side mount (that are erroneously called "trinocular" on Ebay)
adapters on Ebay are cheaper than an actual trinocular head with camera
adapter. You will, however, need an adapter for your camera.
