DP26 captures images without PC connection
The Olympus DP26 microscope camera now is available as a stand-alone unit that can be used without a PC connection.
The DP26 incorporates a five-megapixel scientific-grade progressive scan CCD sensor and is known for its high sensitivity and brilliant, accurate color reproduction.
Olympus claims the the camera is extremely easy to use, so the user can focus on the specimen, not on system settings.
Operators handle all routine image caption functions with a simple, familiar one-touch controller. Because the system is designed for use with the user’s own monitor, the stand-alone DP26 automatically takes advantage of the monitor’s optimal resolution and color output.
The stand-alone system makes it easy for multiple users to share images and make annotations; in addition, the unit can link to a projector for conferences and more.
Specimen images are easy to capture and can be saved in a variety of ways, including via USB or to a password-protected LIS network, all without the necessity for file transferprotocol (FTP) interfaces, web browsers or other intermediate steps.
Other features include:
- Shading correction
- Rapid white balance adjustment
- Measurements tools
- A file manager that records settings
- Attachment to the microscope via a standard C-mount
