PROMICAM 3-4C4.1 MP USB 3.0 Color Digital Microscope Camera with 1" global shutter CMOS sensor

PROMICAM 3-4C microscope camera is designed for inspection and documentation of large samples. Color CMOS sensor with global shutter and 1" square optical format provides very large field of view, which optimally covers the field of view of a microscope. The camera uses the USB 3.0 interface to deliver up to 45 frames per second at its highest resolution. The sensor uses global shutter, which enables observation of fast moving objects without image distortion.

The camera is fully supported by QuickPHOTO programs and extension modules: Deep Focus, Image Stitching, HDR and RECORD IT.

The camera is temporarily unavailable.


Suitable for Applications:
