With sharp 800 x 600 resolution and live and capture resolution the Moticam 1 is the entry-level model of the brand new series of Moticam CMOS microsocpe cameras. It includes measuring software, a calibration slide for ensuring accuracy, and a useful focusing lens and macro stand for stand-alone use with an eyepiece or telescope.
Ideally suited for schools and small laboratories, it incorporates full C-Mount compatibility and 2 included adapters to allow for mounting directly on the eyepieces of most microscopes. The rugged metal housing makes this unit appropriate for use in both scientific and industrial environments, and will provide years of trouble-free operation. It is also easy to install and use... you will enjoy clear, detailed color images on your monitor or projector with a minimum of effort. Please see the features below that are common to all Summit Series cameras.
Moticam Series Features
Re-designed for 2012, the new Moticam general purpose line of microscope cameras all feature an ergonomic housing and upgraded CMOS sensors. They feature a large color palette for exceptional color resolution along with improved white balance and sensitivity. Critically, they are free from the smearing and blur that characterizes other systems in this price range.
Robust documentation and measuring software is included with all the Moticam cameras as well as 2 adjustable adapters to fit over the eyepieces of most microscopes. Other features include fast refresh rates, auto/ manual exposure and white balance control, full screen live imaging, time-lapse photography and user-friendly, image capture. In short, these well-designed microscope camera packages offer an affordable introduction to digital microscopy. We recommend them for any classroom or laboratory application requiring image capture and documentation.
The included Motic Images Plus software offers PC/MAC compatibility and simple, accurate and easy-to-use controls for image capture, notation and measuring. File formats include JPG, BMP, TIFF, RAW. Measuring capabilities include length, width, height, thickness, circumference, radius, angles and dot counts while notations can be easily made on any given image.
The software also includes auto white balance and color enhancement among other benefits while image capture and storage is intuitive. The software is also fully TWAIN and DirectX compatible, allowing simple integration with a wide range of commercial and scientific imaging software. Moreover, both TWAIN and DirectX plug-ins are independent of the main driver, which allows discreet control of the camera for these applications.
