Article on Macroimaging
Scientific Digital Camera: This system can achieve an extraordinary depth
of field, which greatly exceeds the depth of field of obtainable by film back cameras and matches or exceeds that
of the scanning electron microscope.
· Pixera 600CL Digital Camera: Meixa Tech uses
the Pixera 600CL for virtually all imaging with the compound and stereo microscopes as well as macro imaging. The
600CL is capable of obtaining 2700 x 2100 pixel resolution, which provides images that are close to the resolution
of a film-back camera. The CCD of the 600CL is cooled thus allowing for a truly remarkable sensitivity.
