Leica DFC340 FX Digital Camera

The high dynamic range offered by the Leica DFC340 FX allows dark and light objects (monochrome) to be recorded and evaluated within the same image. The 2-megapixel CCD sensor in the digital camera ensures that each image reveals extraordinary detail for the most critical publicationquality. The progressive scan readout mode provides full resolution in every live and captured frame. A variety of binning and readout modes adapt to both bright and dim signals in the images to ensure near real time live speeds while reducing the risk of photobleaching the most sensitive samples.

Key Features

* The 2-Mpixel CCD provides brilliant images, 1600x1200 resolution resolves the finest details
