Crisp and Fluid Imaging for Every Need - Olympus Full HD Cameras
Product News Oct 22, 2014
Life-like digital microscopy is now a reality with the DP27 and DP22 digital cameras from Olympus. Both cameras deliver fluid imaging at Full-HD resolution via a USB 3.0 interface, and enable easy optimization for each and every application with three distinct modes. With the next generation of Olympus digital microscopy camera, researchers can enjoy visualization on a monitor that is virtually identical to that of the oculars.
Building upon the existing innovations of the Olympus digital camera portfolio, the new cameras offer a detailed Full-HD live image, with 30 fps for the DP22 and 22 fps for the DP27. The progressive readout subsequently ensures a fluid and true-to-life experience, ideal for both analysis and viewing comfort. Moreover, when precise focusing of intricate samples is necessary, the DP27 can provide a fast 15 fps live image at 5 megapixels, allowing the user to effectively zoom in directly on the display.
Based on individual needs, the user is able to choose a “High-Fidelity mode” to generate images which are true to the oculars, or a “Normal mode” with enhanced colors ideal for pale stained samples or for clearly presenting to an audience. When using phase-contrast, a dedicated “Cell Culture” mode is also available to produce a balanced image, free from the typical fringes produced by this illumination technique. Whichever mode is chosen, the new cameras are designed for ease of use and boast an automatic “white point” balance. Regardless of illumination conditions, colors generated are always perfectly balanced and devoid of any color cast - without the need to constantly adjust the camera parameters or correct images post-acquisition.
Addressing specific requirements, both cameras deliver their full image quality also in a stand-alone configuration, with the new DP2-SAL controller directly connecting the camera to a monitor. With no dedicated computer, this compact controller simplifies image acquisition yet still provides powerful features like movie recording with audio, or control via a touch-screen.
Ready to use in seconds from power-on, the controller also provides automatic image calibration and enables quick, reliable measurements to be easily exported to Microsoft Excel. Images can either be saved locally to any USB connected storage media or in a shared folder via a network connection.
Improving the quality and efficiency of digital microscope cameras, the DP27 and DP22 models enable an experience almost indistinguishable from the oculars with brilliant, Full-HD live images and high-resolution capture, while the DP2-SAL controller provides unmatched convenience and ease of use.
