Photomax Premier Universal Microscope

Released in 1966, the Photomax (LB) was the flagship microscope of the postwar period. This model had a fully automated photographic device, a color temperature adjustment function for color photography, and an ideal color illumination system all built into the microscope.
Mounting a standard unit on the main body allowed users to select from three types of microscopes designed for biological, metallographic, and polarization microscopy. A variety of specimens could be observed using accessories such as fluorescent, darkfield, and phase contrast microscopy.
For photographic needs, an auto-winding 35 mm camera was offered, as well as devices for large-format 4 × 5 film, roll film, and dry plates. To take pictures, users simply focused on the specimen through the binocular section, as they no longer needed to deal with the framing work. The photographer looked through the field of view eyepiece to take pictures according to the size of the film used. With fully automatic exposure control and fully adjustable color-temperature correction, the model allowed taking photographs for a variety of purposes.
