Product Description

Designed specifically for high performance scientific imaging, this range of excellent CMOS cameras represents outstanding value for money. And, the high-speed USB 2.0 interface means ease of installation on any computer.

Available with resolutions of 3, 5.2 or 9.1 Megapixels, all the cameras are supplied complete with a 0.5x C-mount adapter, with tube adapters to enable the adapter to fit eyepiece tubes 23mm, 30mm & 30.5mm diameter. Alternatively, the cameras may be fitted to the C-mount adapters offered by other microscope manufacturers.

A comprehensive software package is supplied free with each camera and provides a live image from the microscope or lens, making focusing and illumination set-up simple. A single click captures the image which can then be saved to disk in a wide range of file formats. The live image can be interactively adjusted to provide the optimum viewing and capture conditions, ideal for teaching and group discussion environments. The software also includes facilities to measure length, area, angles, to count and to label.

Also included with each camera is a calibrating stage micrometer.
