Dark Field Microscope ADVANCED-Set

Ready for shipping

Dark Field Microscope ADVANCED-Set

The ADVANCED set is our low-cost dark field solution with LED technology for live blood observation through the eyepieces, Live View in HD quality (on the PC monitor or TV screen) and capturing of images and videos. It is the recommended choice for users who value high image quality and the detection of the smallest details. Also the fact that the camera is connected via HDMI directly to the monitor (and therefore not "slowed down" from the USB port of the PC) has the advantage that you have a “fast image” in HD full screen mode (1920x1080).

The included HD camera has two outputs: one HDMI output for direct connection to an HDMI monitor or -TV (recommended usage) and a USB output for alternative use with a Windows PC. In HDMI mode produces the highest quality image. Pictures and videos are recorded in this mode on the included SD memory card on the camera and can later be transferred to the PC or can be played directly from the camera - the camera has an image gallery function with playback capability of images/videos!

What is the „small difference“ compared to the HD-Set?

The difference to our high-end HD set that makes the ADVANCED set more economical lies exclusively in the camera equipment. Below for your orientation a comparison:

  • Frames/sec in HDMI mode: HD-Set: 60fps, ADVANCED-Set: 15fps
  • Frames/sec in USB mode: HD-Set: 30fps, ADVANCED-Set: 15fps
  • Sensor: HD-Set: SONY IMX236, ADVANCED-Set: APTINA MT9P031
  • Video recording on SD card: HD-Set: 1080p 30fps, ADVANCED-Set: 1080p 15fps
Despite these technical differences the ADVANCED set is still a good choice for professional use!

HDMI Microscope Camera TUCSEN HD LITE

The HD LITE is a more lite version compared to our flagship HDC DF1. The difference is mainly on the one side in the used image sensor (instead of the SONY IMX236 of HDC DF1 this model uses an Aptina MT9P006 Sensor) and in the processsing power as this model achieves e.g. 15 fps in HDMI mode (instead of 60 fps).Despite these compromises the performance of this camera for most applications is more than adequate and provides a very cost-effective solution at HD picture quality.

Multi-Signal Output: The camera can be connected directly to a HDMI monitor (standard use) or alternatively to a PC (via USB connection). You can also use both outputs in parallel as it provides the signal to both all the time. In both modes, the camera offers high refresh rates, ideal to keep track of microscopic movements and record them.

Flexible Exposure Times: In addition to the auto-exposure, you can adjust the exposure time and the gain manually. The exposure time can be set between 1 ms and 10 seconds (step: 1 ms).

Zoom – Mirror - Compare: Both the on-screen menu (HDMI mode) and the PC application (USB mode) provide zoom function and the possibility of mirroring the picture horizontally and vertically. By choosing the comparison function, half of the monitor (vertically divided) shows the live view and the other half shows an already captured image you selected.

Zoom and comparison

Built-in Mouse Control is a special feature of this model: in HDMI mode the supplied mouse can be connected to the USB port on the camera. With the mouse you can then activate the on-screen menu and record with his help, photos and adjust all the camera settings.

Mouse Control Function

Fast Video-Recording: The camera achieves recording in HDMI mode 15 fps at 1080P.

Built-In Player: Previously taken pictures and videos are stored on the SD card in the camera. You can view and play them from the camera to the HDMI monitor using the gallery function - no PC is required!
