Detailed Description

The Leica IC D is easy to install via a single FireWire connecting cable and can be connected to any PC with a FireWire interface. This provides the user with an ergonomic work station that allows him or her to observe specimens either stereoscopically in the binocular tube or independently of the eyepiece on the monitor. Digitizing in the camera The 3.3-Megapixel RGB sensor provides a resolution of 2088 ×1550 pixels (interpolated up to 7.3 Megapixel= 3132 ×2325 pixels). The light sensitivity of the CCD sensor can be adjusted via gain control to obtain amaximum signal quality before digitizing. The brightness signals incident on the CCD chip are directly digitized in the camera head with a resolution of 12 bits per color channel. This technology allows fora high transfer speed without loss of information or quality and creates a noise-free, sharp and color-sensitive live image on the monitor.
