JENOPTIK LOS, the German manufacturer of the ProgRes 3012 and ProgRes 3008 digital cameras, has developed a new model for microscopic applications, the ProgRes C14.
The ProgRes C14 digital camera is designed as a multi-purpose digital camera for nearly all microscopic applications. It features high resolution as well as long exposure times suitable for brightfield, fluorescence and macroscopic applications.
Jenoptik's advanced "microscanning" technique allows for resolutions up to 12.1 million pixels with full RGB color information. By using microscanning the full image is composed from 36 single exposures.
The user can select various capture resolutions from 1030 x 1300 up to 3090 x 3900 pixels non-interpolated.
Between each of the single exposures the 1.3 MPixels CCD array sensor is shifted exactly half a pixel's width.
The precise shifting is done by piezoelectric elements. Thereby full RGB information is recorded for each single pixel - no interpolation is needed.
The camera features an IEEE1394 interface - maybe better known as "FireWire" - for data and power transmission. FireWire offers fast data transmission at a rate of 400Mbit/s, which is an important prerequisite for fast live-images.
The camera features a brilliant and fast online image allows easy focusing, up to 18 fps with 5 x 5 binning. At the same time the OHCI compliant interface enables easy usage of one camera with several computers in the lab.
The camera is also powered from the single firewire connection and can also run from a Notebook computer. Scitech 03 9480 4999.
