DS-Ri2 camera – Digital Sight microscopy camera
DS-Ri2 microscopy digital camera equipped with a Nikon digital SLR camera FX-format CMOS sensor optimized for microscopy.
Benefits and Features
One-shot capture of high-definition color images
DS-Ri2 offers 16.25 megapixels. The newly equipped CMOS sensor for Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras (36.0 x 23.9 mm image size) enables one-shot capture of high-definition images. It also allows faster imaging than pixel shift imaging comprising multiple-shot images, and reduces vibration during image capture.
Superior color reproduction, high sensitivity and low-noise imaging
The newly developed image processing engine is ideal for brightfield imaging of pathological samples, which require high-color reproducibility. The large pixel size (7.3 um pixel pitch) allows weak light to be captured by each pixel and the low-noise circuit design is optimized for microscope imaging. These enable sensitivity control from ISO200 to ISO12800, and high-sensitivity fluorescence imaging with reduced noise.
High-speed live-image display
Thanks to the USB3.0 computer connection and CMOS sensor, which provides high-speed data readout, the frame rate has been significantly improved to 45 fps (1636 x 1088 pixels), from 19 fps (1280 x 1024 pixels) with the conventional model. This enables fast live-image display and easy observation point selection and focusing.
