Key Features

  • 3MP high-speed USB 3.0 digital camera captures still images and streams live videos on your computer
  • User-friendly software is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10, Mac OS X, and Linux
  • Sophisticated software for Windows offers editing, processing and advanced features including Stitching, EDF and measurement functions
  • Linux and Mac software records video and still images, with controls for exposure and color
  • Fits four mounting sizes: 23mm, 30mm, 30.5mm, and C-mount (two mounting adapters included)

This 3MP USB3.0 high speed microscope digital camera has a unique design that comes with a reduction lens, a USB cable and two adapters. The high speed digital camera captures still microscopy images, streams real time live videos on your computers, and is compatible with Windows XP/Vista/7/8, Mac OSX and Linux. Featuring built-in C-mount compatibility and 23mm reduction lens adapter, our camera can be attached to any instrument with a C-mount or a 23mm, a 30mm and a 30.5mm photo port. The camera is equipped with CMOS color sensor, and comes with a high-speed USB cord, four mounting sizes (23mm, 30mm, 30.5mm, and C-mount).

With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, this camera package is a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. A measurement calibration slide is included to properly calibrate the software's scale for use with the array of linear and geometric measurement tools. With the ability to calibrate scales at multiple magnifications, the software can be used for multi-level inspection. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while simultaneously capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version of the software which can capture video and still images, and includes limited processing features.
