MAY 16--Optronics (Santa Barbara, CA; www.optronics.com) is offering a versatile 2-Mpixel monochrome digital camera with infrared (IR) sensitivity to 1000 nm. MicroFire Monochrome incorporates multiple binning modes and a color-merge function to achieve color fluorescent images from sample preparations through individual narrow-bandpass filter sets.
MicroFire Monochrome contains a 2-Mpixel CCD that measures 14.8 mm in diagonal with 1600 x 1200 pixels that are 7.4 μm square and a 40,000 electron well depth for low-light photomicrography imaging applications. It offers a native application for camera control that runs within the included company's PictureFrame imaging application suite. PictureFrame comes with a variety of image-processing features and can paint a full-resolution image on any large format monitor at live imaging rates. The user can superimpose the camera controls over this image in any chosen position or display the image without borders or controls to obtain additional image depth and detail.
Other features include flat-field correction/background subtraction, ROI with definable size, user settings files, white-balance presets, five binning modes, adjustable sub-framing mode, and an IEEE 1394 (FireWire) interface.
