USB Microscope camera HDC DF2

The DF2 model is the right choice for users who, on the one hand, have high quality requirements and, on the other hand, need a high-resolution microscope camera with good performance in difficult lighting conditions. Such applications are e.g. dark field, fluorescence or bioluminescence microscopy.

A good image quality is guaranteed by the SONY IMX485 image sensor (1/1.2"). In terms of resolution, this model offers a resolution of 8.3 MP (3840x2160) and offers a USB 3.0 interface which is the state of the art for transmission performance while working.

The camera is ideal for capturing the weak light emitted in fluorescence applications - thanks to its extremely high sensitivity (2188 mV at 1/30 sec) and low read-out noise.

Flexible exposure times : In addition to the auto exposure, the exposure time and the gain can be selected manually depending on the application. The exposure time can be selected in the software between 0.02 msec and 15 sec.
