Leica DFC490
High Performance Digital FireWireColor Camera System forHigh-resolution Photomicrography
Ultra High-resolution PhotographyProvides Precise detail
New applications in life science and industry require innovativeapproaches to imaging. Quickly producing high-quality images fordocumentation, evaluation, and analysis is the key to imagingsuccess. The Leica DFC490 digital camera system provides thehighest color fidelity, resolution, and detail. Real time speeds canbe achieved using a variety of innovative readout modes. The LeicaDFC490 is ideal for the most intricate documentation.
High-resolution Detail
The cutting edge Leica DFC490 integrates an 8-megapixel CCD,offering superior quality, high-resolution images that werepreviously only possible with multiple acquisition cameras. High-resolution CCD's are especially beneficial for low magnificationmicroscope imaging, as the amount of information provided by theoptical system is much larger than with high magnification. TheDFC490 produces sharp images with unsurpassed color accuracy that represents the best in the industry.
Innovative Readout
Innovative data readout modes allow the user to freely selectimage transfer, speed, and scan method. Full frame readout mode,for example, utilizes full camera resolution (3264
2448 pixels) with12-bit signal processing uncompressed TIFF files and producing38 MB files. By saving such huge image data in 3
8 Bit only andin JEPG format, you can of course reduce the image sizeconsiderably.
Uniquely Engineered
The Leica DFC490 incorporates a three-tiered cooling systemdesigned to eliminate thermal noise buildup in the camera. Anintegrated Peltier cooling system draws heat away from the CCD,eliminating excited electrons in the camera head. Leica's uniquemetallic camera housing with heat-dissipating fins pulls heat awayfrom the camera. The DFC490, like all Leica cameras, uses thephoto coupler as a heat dissipation conduit.

System Integration
Creating crisp, sharp images was never easier with the newLeica Application Suite (LAS) software. LAS features automaticmicroscope setup and calibration, annotation, and measurementfunctions. If LAS is used with an automated microscope, the usercan store and recall camera and microscope parameters toexactly reproduce previously made pictures. The unique workflowapproach of LAS makes processing and organizing high-resolutionimages a snap.
Intuitive solutions for PC and MAC
The camera's software makes digital recording on the screenquick and easy, using either a PC or MAC. The easy-to-useinterface is specifically designed for microscopy applications.Numerous intuitive image capture and editing functions ensure that recorded images are immediately available for viewing andprocessing, offering the highest quality and full use of all thebenefits of digital technology.
