Leica Announce New HD Microscope Cameras

Easy to use, fast live images, brilliant results – microscope users achieve all of this and more with the new Leica MC120 HD and MC170 HD cameras. Leica Microsystems gets right to the heart of today's requirements for innovative image management and expands its extensive high-definition product range for industry and research.

Absolutely user-friendly, the new microscope cameras from Leica Microsystems reveal fast, brilliant live images directly on an HD monitor or on a Notebook screen.

Fast live images in brilliant quality

The new high-performance cameras provide high-speed, precise images in real time at a rate of up to 30 frames per second. They are directly connectable to an HD monitor as a stand-alone solution or to a computer via USB interface. While the 2.5 megapixel Leica MC120 HD is ideal for almost all microscopic applications, the Leica MC170 HD with a resolution of 5 megapixels is especially well-suited for acquiring the finest details at low magnifications. For fast documentation or hands-on training the user can record brilliant full HD movie clips as MP4. Images and movies are easily, cost-effectively stored with high quality onto a portable SD-card.

The infrared remote control allows direct and convenient control of all camera parameters such as brightness, gain, and contrast of the image; and also white balance operations, changing to other camera modes, and image capture. The possibility of switching the view between binocular tube and HD monitor makes working with the microscope extremely ergonomic and comfortable.

Flexible and cost-efficient

With the C-mount interface, the compact HD microscope cameras attach to every commercially available microscope, macroscope, or micro-imaging instrument. This makes them particularly flexible and ideal for a wide variety of individual requirements and budgets. Both cameras are fully compatible with LAS (Leica Application Suite) software for additional image analysis, comments or measurements.
