DCM130 (USB) Digital Camera for Microscope

Model DCM130 is a digital camera professionally designed for microscope. It works perfectly with all kinds of optical microscopes, such as biological microscope, metallurgical microscope and stereomicroscope. The images of the observed specimen or samples can be genuinely displayed on the computer screen. The powerful advanced software ScopePhoto included with the camera ensures simple and convenient operation on the images captured from a microscope.

1) DCM130 employs newly designed optical system of fully coated, based on MTF (modulation Transfer Function) analysis, for improved image flatness and contrast. The images are brighter and distinct even at the periphery of the field of view. It offers excellent performance when combined with plan-achromatic objectives system. Especially, this system is designed for microscope and matches the specific characters of microscope, such as the field of view of eyepiece WF10x-18mm and the parfocalization of objectives.

2) DCM130 has a wide field, which matches microscope's field of view 18mm.

3) For any observation head from microscope, i.e. monocular head, binocular head or trinocular head, DCM130 can be inserted directly into the ocular-tube of the photo-tube. With the adaptor φ30mm or the adaptor φ30.5mm included, it is also workable on a stereomicroscope. The operation is so simple that it can works perfectly with all kinds of microscopes.

4) If the microscope adapted with DCM130 is earthed definitely, the metal body of DCM130 ensures wonderful anti-interference.

5) Based on the consideration of the color temperature of microscope illumination, the design makes it offer very good color fidelity. The captured image is available with true color.

Introduction about software ScopePhoto
ScopePhoto is an image processing software professionally designed for digital cameras, including DCM35, DCT35, DCM130, DCT130, DCM210 and DCT210. Except the basic image file operation and processing, the ScopePhoto has the following characteristic specially designed for the scientific analysis of the captured image through the camera or other image capture devices. The main functions of the ScopePhoto are listed as follows:

a) Image archival with data attachment (*.PTL format, other formats are also supported)

b) Image capture through VFW and Twain interface

c) Image cut-&-paste from image to image, image to file

d) Image basic operations like other similar software are included in the image menu. At here you can adjust the image at ease

e) Image layer operation specially designed for the measurement operation (Layer technique is used to separate the measured results and the different results can be put on different layers)

f) Image processing filter for noise reduction and enhancement (image enhancement filters. edge enhancement filters, morphology operation filters. user defined kernel filter, include convolution and morphological filters)

g) Image arithmetic operation between image and image, image and digital number (including AND, OR, XOR, NAND, NOR, NOT, Add, Subtract, Multiply, Divide, Absolute, Min, Max, Average, Invert, Logarithm, Exponential, Square Root, Square, X to the power of Y operation)

h) Image pseudocode, range, segmentation operations are also include in the application

i) Image zooming and panning operations
