This special offer combines our popular Omano OM118-M4 monocular microscope and our easy-to-use Optixcam Summit Series KK2 1.3MP digital camera, into an affordable and versatile digital microscopy lab, ideal for the home school or classroom setting. Similar to the OM118-M3, the Omano OM-118-M4 also features an additional 100x objective lens and a mechanical slide holder for easier slide handling. The microscope includes four achromatic objectives for viewing cell structures on slides and a 5 year Omano Lifetime limited warranty.
The Omano OM118-M4 is a high power monocular microscope used for viewing cellular structures on slides. The ocular is angled at an ergonomic 45 degrees and rotates through 360 degrees for flexible viewing. A single WF10x eyepiece combines with four achromatic objectives lenses (4x, 10x, 40x spring, 100x spring oil immersion) for magnification levels of 40x, 100x, 400x. and 1,000x.
Stage & Focus
The microscope includes a plain stage with mechanical slide holder that enables easy slide movements on the stage. Focusing includes rack and pinion design for durability and coaxial coarse and fine focus controls. We recommend coaxial coarse/fine focus controls since they enable 'eyes down' focusing. In other words, the viewer does not constantly need to look up in order to find the other focus control.
This benefit is important in enhancing a student's experience and therefore in encouraging a more sustained interest in the microscope. Safety features include a rack stop to ensure that the stage does not impact with the objectives and thereby break the slides and a slip clutch control to mitigate the risk of damaging the focus controls through over extension.
The condenser is Abbe 1.25 N. A with iris diaphragm for optimal adjustments. Transmitted illumination includes variable intensity.
The new OptixCam Summit K2 Series KK2-1.3MP digital microscope camera is a terrific way to turn any microscope into a fun and exciting learning tool for kids of all ages. Designed for students and young explorers, this sturdy and affordable little camera will out-perform any other camera in its price range. When used in place of a standard microscope eyepiece, students can now capture vivid images of that sea shell from vacation, the backyard butterfly, a drop of pond water, or Grandpa's coin collection.
It works well with Windows operating systems and the software installs quickly so kids can start capturing images and video. The camera includes a 23.2mm smooth bore ocular mount for mounting on the eyetube or trinocular port of most modern microscopes. We highly recommend this camera for the hobbyist, coin-collector, home-school educator and all general microscopy use.
The included K2View software for Windows provides for excellent color rendering and fast image processing especially when capturing multiple images. Simple, intuitive and easy-to-use controls offer image capture, notation, geometric measuring and storage in JPG, BMP, TIFF, RAW format. The software also includes auto white balance, color enhancement, anti-flicker and other image-enhancing benefits. This software is not MAC-compatible.
Includes dust cover, manual, spare bulb, spare fuse, immersion oil.

Compound Microscope Digital Camera
The OptixCam Summit K2 series digital microscope camera turns your optical microscope into a fully-functional digital microscope. Plug it into your computer’s USB port and it automatically powers up. Your workflow becomes more user-friendly, more ergonomic, and perfect for collaboration.
This digital microscope camera lets you sit back and study samples on screen, without hunching over the eyepiece. In routine life science applications, you capture remarkably clean images that are ideal for cataloging and recording for posterity. It allows you to save and document images in industrial or medical reports, with easy annotation right from the included software. It transforms biology classes into launchpads for exploration by enabling students to see and share easily.
A dynamic range of 1.3 to 14 megapixels for big deals and small details.
The details matter to us just as much as they matter to you. That’s why we carry a range of versatile microscope cameras with multiple resolution options, making these cameras easy on the eyes and easy on your budget (if that’s what you need) too.
Summit K2 cameras range from:
- Low (1.3) megapixels, suitable for hobbyists, classrooms, and other applications where affordability, durability, and good resolution are most important.
- Medium (3.1) megapixels, suitable for biological research and industrial applications that require an excellent mix of visibility and affordability.
- Mid (5.0) megapixels, suitable for industrial inspectors and life science researchers who have departmental budget constraints, but need sharp images and easy functionality.
- High (10) megapixels, suitable for healthcare professionals and researchers with a greater budget who require high resolution image projection in large-format applications.
- Advanced (14) megapixels, suitable for complex microbiological applications where performance and image quality are all that matters.
Built around the superior Aptina MT9T001 CMOS color sensor.
Rigged with high-resolution Aptina MT9T001 CMOS color sensors, Summit K2 digital microscope cameras deliver vivid and vibrant images, even in low-light environments, and allow you to manipulate images while maintaining true-to-life colors and textures.
Compatible with PC and MAC.
Connect and power up easily through USB 2.0, no external power required, and dig into your work with the included K2View software (PC only). It’s built to make your workflow easier, with features like:
- Geometric measuring using lines, circles, and angles that are scaled to your magnification level in real time.
- Notation, so all the important info you need to package with your images is right where it needs to be.
- Anti-flicker, so images look sharp under a variety of ambient lighting.
- Time-lapse photography so you can easily batch images together, tracking changes as you go.
- Auto/manual exposure, making it easy to get the image you need.
- White balance control, so the images you capture look the way they should.
- Storage in JPG, BMP, TIFF, TGA, and RAW format, so images can be used across a range of platforms.
The cameras also work just fine with your existing TWAIN, DirectX, and Image Capture (MAC only) software. You can also download K2View from our site.
Excellent image reproduction with 0.5x Reducing Lens.
No fuss, just focus. Many competitively priced digital microscope cameras magnify the image through the eyepiece, so the image you see on your monitor doesn’t accurately represent what you see looking down the scope with your own eyes. That’s not good enough for you. We counter that by including a 0.5x reducing lens. This prevents over-magnification and produces real images. You can trust what you see.
Summit K2 series digital microscope cameras already work in applications spanning industries. They can be retrofitted onto most existing optical microscope models, and come standard on Omano digital microscopes.
They add some swagger to your passion for microscopy and make sharing a lot easier. You don’t have to go on your microscopy adventures alone anymore.
