5 Mpx Color USB 3.0 Camera
with 2nd Generation of SONY Pregius® CMOS Sensor with Global Shutter
PROMICAM 3-5CP USB 3.0 represents a viable alternative to CCD cameras. Used 2nd generation of SONY Pregius® CMOS sensor exceeds CCD technology in several parameters.
High Image Quality, Excellent Color Reproduction and Large Field of View
Sensor with 2/3" diagonal provides high image quality, excellent color reproduction and large field of view.
The sensor uses global shutter, which enables observation of fast moving objects without image distortion.
High Live View Frame Rates Suitable for "Live Imaging" Applications
- Live view frame rate in full 5 Mpx resolution reaches up to 23 fps, which exceeds maximal frame rate of 5 Mpx CCD cameras.
- Live view frame rate in Full HD (1920 x 1080 - using ROI feature) resolution reaches up to 43 fps.
High Sensitivity, High Dynamic Range and Low Noise Level
The used 2nd generation of SONY Pregius® CMOS sensor brings high sensitivity comparable to sensitivity of common CCD sensors. The values of dynamic range and noise level exceed the values of common CCD sensors.
Support in QuickPHOTO Programs
QuickPHOTO programs for digital photomicrography provide full control of camera's features, e. g.: live view display, manual and automatic exposure, white balance, black balance, gain, gamma, hue, shading correction, measurements in a live view and many more.
Suitable for Applications:
- Biology/Live Cell Imaging
- Moderate Light Fluorescence
- Gel Documentation
- Quality Control/Semiconductor Inspection
- Documentation and Archiving
