This is a 5-Megapixel, color digital-imaging-system, especially designed for microscopes. Accurately displaying images of the observed specimen on your computer, it's suitable for all kinds of optical microscopes, including biological, metallurgical, and inspection microscopes. Setup is easy, using a single USB 2.0 cable for computer-connectivity and power. The advanced, yet easy-to-use software for Windows (XP/Vista/7/8/10) provides a range of tools for capturing, editing, compositing, and measuring. The measurement tools can be calibrated at multiple magnifications, and offer a variety of shapes. The included calibration slide allows you to take accurate measurements in the software by creating baseline measurements at the desired magnifications. Stitching and Extended-Depth-of-Field provide methods for multidimensional compositing to increase field size and depth. A more-basic version is available for Mac OSX, providing capture and processing features. Both versions allow you to simultaneously preview and capture live video and still images at different resolutions. With native support, the camera can be also be used by 3rd-party applications in a Linux environment.

The camera uses a standard C-mount interface, making it compatible with a wide range of optical systems. The included reduction lens optimizes the field-of-view, and can be coupled with the included sizing adapters for 23mm, 30mm, and 30.5mm photo-ports and ocular ports.
