Hi haejae,
There used to be a company called Scopetronix that manufacture such adapters but they have since gone belly up. I bought their adapter for my Nikon Coolpix point and shoot many years back. Generally, unless there is a jig to hold your camera in place, minimally the camera must have a screw thread to mount the adapter.
You can try here but I have never bought from them before.
