Key Features:

  • 6MP ultra-sensitive, low-noise CCD digital camera
  • Ideal for fluorescence-microscopy or astrophotography
  • Active temperature-regulation with up to 45 degrees reduction
  • User-friendly software for Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 offers editing/processing and advanced features including Stitching and Focus-stacking
  • View high-speed video while capturing high-resolution images
  • Brand Name: AmScope     Model No: MF603C-CCD

    The MF603C-CCD is our top-of-the-line camera for imaging in low-light conditions such as fluorescence-microscopy. The camera uses a 6-megapixel, 1" Sony HAD CCD sensor, which dramatically boosts light-gathering efficiency. To guarantee a high signal-to-noise performance, the camera features a built-in thermal-regulation system capable of decreasing the operating temperature by up to 45 degrees. This reduction in sensor-heat results in less self-noise during the light-capture and conversion processes.

    An added benefit of the CCD sensor is its "global shutter" design, which eliminates "rolling-shutter" artifacts associated with CMOS sensors. This equates to better consitency and less distortion during image-capture, and smoother movement in video. Because of the camera's accuracy and noise-control, the camera is capable of capturing long-exposures up to one hour.

    The MF603C-CCD uses the C-mount standard for lens-attachment or instrument-coupling. With a wide array of lenses and coupling-adapters, the camera can be used with virtually any optical microscope on the market, including AmScope, Nikon, Olympus, Leica, and Zeiss. On top of that, it can be used with a wide range of telescopes for astrophotography.

    With software available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, this camera package is a multi-platform imaging solution. The included Windows software offers image-development and measurement tools, as well as advanced compositing features such as image-stitching and extended-depth-of-focus. With the ability to calibrate scales at multiple magnifications, the software can be used for multi-level inspection. Independent preview and capture resolutions allow you to view high-speed video while simultaneously capturing high-definition images. For Mac and Linux, there is a lite version of the software which can capture video and still images, and includes limited processing features.
