The new Moticam MC5+ 5.0MP digital microscope camera introduces SuperSpeed USB 3.0 technology to the world of digital microscopy. Faster data transfer and more efficient power consumption make this camera an efficient and versatile imaging solution for educators, life science researchers, and many other professional disciplines. It incorporates full C-Mount compatibility and 2 included adapters allow for mounting directly on the eyepieces of most microscopes.
Advantages of USB 3.0
USB 3.0, also known as SuperSpeed™ USB, is the latest generation of USB technology and delivers several key performance benefits for microscopy. For example, USB 3.0 transfers data up to ten times faster than USB 2.0, resulting in quicker transfer of large image or video files and greater workflow efficiency. This is ideal for data-streaming applications found in the research lab or biology classroom. It also does away with the power drain common to USB2.0, resulting in less power used and longer battery life in laptops, tablets and peripherals.
This versatile camera outputs a high-quality live image at full 5.0 megapixel resolution, plus it includes advanced linear and geometric measuring capability using the supplied Motic Images Plus 3.0 capture software.
Moticam Series Features
Re-designed for 2016, 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 (30mm & 38mm) 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 upgraded Motic Images Plus 3.0 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.
CD-ROM Software disc, 4-Dot calibration slide, focusable coated glass lens, 30mm & 38mm Eyepiece adapters, Macro viewing tube, USB 3.0 Cable, Quick Start Guide.
If you elect to use the camera directly on a 23mm eyetube without the eyepiece, you will need the Motic B&S Adapter kit, (part number MCBSA) available as an option prior to checkout. A standard Motic 0.5X C-mount is also optionally available for mounting to the trinocular port of most Motic microscopes.
