Factors governing photographic image quality in the scanning electron microscope are discussed with particular reference to the commonly used EXA camera on the Cambridge Stereoscan IIa. It is shown that the small image on the medium speed film suffers considerable loss of information due to the turbid nature of the photographic emulsion. Inexpensive modifications to the oscilloscope camera supplied with the Stereoscan are described which enable the superior quality of a larger format to be utilized. Appropriate settings of the brightness and contrast controls of the image tube with respect to the photographic system is discussed and the results illustrated in a series of micrographs.
