Benefits

  • Connect via USB 2.0 to transfer images to a computer

Applications

  • Image capturing from a microscope

Record images directly to your PC computer as movies or still frames. These digital microscope cameras offer flexibility, with a range of configurations for image capture, a choice of mount option (C or CS) and file output Codec (compression) alternatives. Since both cameras connect via the USB port, installing the image capture software is simple. Either camera can be used on WPI’s stereo microscopes PZMTIV, PZMTIII, compound microscopes W30ST-LED and also the PSMT5N Surgical Microscope. Choose from the one third-inch CCD with 1024×768 resolution and 15 color or 30 monochrome frames per second (USBCAM33) or one half-inch CCD with 1280×960 resolution and 7.5 color /15 monochrome frames per second (USBCAM50).

These cameras include IC Imaging Control software that has:

  • Real-time video preview
  • Text and graphics can be drawn on a live video stream
  • Scroll and Zoom
  • Acquisition of single frames
  • Capture pause, for intermittent image capture
  • Timestamps
