Cool camera for high definition
The DS-Fi1c is the latest addition to Nikon’s renowned Digital Sight series of cameras. Featuring a high definition cooled colour camera head and the latest optical technology, the DS-Fi1c is ideal for both brightfield and fluorescence applications as well as sensitive samples. An optimal microscopic digital imaging system can be configured for any bioscience or industrial application, from documentation to advanced image processing and analysis.
The DS-Fi1c uses a Peltier cooling mechanism to cool the CCD to 20°C below the ambient temperature. When capturing fluorescence images where long exposures are required, thermal background noise is suppressed, enabling capture of high contrast images. With a high dynamic range, low noise and high frame rate, the DS-Fi1c offers high performance under short and longer exposure times, and is suitable for sensitive samples across a wide variety of applications including fluorescence, brightfield, phase contrast and differential interference contrast (DIC). The high definition 5.0-megapixel CCD produces better fluorescence images.
Offering all of the convenience and features of the DS series, the DS-Fi1c has a C-mount and is compatible with the Nikon DS-L2 and DS-U2 controllers via a USB 2.0 interface. In addition the DS-Fi1c can be controlled by NIS-Elements software.
