Leica DFC290 HD Digital FireWire Camera

The DFC290 HD is a colour digital FireWire Camera with a 3 Megapixel CMOS sensor and offers a dual output to a computer or directly to an imaging device which contains an HDMI interface such as flat screens, beamers or DVD recorders. All image information of the sensor is digitised and processed directly in the camera head, leading to optimum noise suppression and exceptional colour results. Using the latest state of the art color engine, the image data can be delivered at a very high frame rate and with virtual no computing delay, so sample manipulation or dissection can be done by looking on a High Definition flat screen instead of looking through the binocular tube of a microscope. For the first time it is now also possible to share such a high definition microscope image to an audience while still controlling and viewing all camera parameters on a computer screen.
