An economic decision
For users of educational microscopes or simple stereomicroscopes,
AxioCam IC is the ideal gateway to the world of professional digital
documentation and analysis. Supplied complete with AxioVision LE,
these cameras are ready to use out of the box.
Better in digital: more possibilities
No comparison with limited video technology: the significantly
higher resolution and free adjustment of the exposure time to the
acquisition situation satisfy all basic requirements at a professional
level.
Digital precision: reproducible measurement
Adaptation via a C-mount adapter not only supplies good optical
quality; a further advantage is the fixed magnification for measuring
with maximum accuracy and reproducibility. Combine it with objective-specific scaling in AxioVision to achieve precise measuring results.
No artifacts: uncompressed data
Loss-free display: linear, uncompressed data are transferred from
AxioCam IC to the PC, without image compression artifacts or data
preprocessing.
Optimized modes for fast live images
The rapid FireWire connection transfers the image data to the PC
without delay. With AxioCam ICc 3, two live image modes support
quick focusing and selection of a sample position for routine work
in everyday laboratory practice.
Compact and usable anywhere

SteREO Discovery.V8 and
AxioVision Extended Focus module
2. Predatory water flea (Polyphemus
pediculus), ventral view, transmitted
light, acquired using Axio Imager
Microscope or stand: in addition to use as a microscope camera,
AxioCam IC is also well-suited to photomacrography as in the materials laboratory for example. The camera is mounted on the stand
using an optional photo stand connection.
Easy operation with AxioVision
Camera control in AxioVision makes operation in all areas of application as simple as possible. Practical functions, simple exposure
time measurement, fast determination of the white balance as well
as the saving and loading of all settings make work quick and easy.
Modular software for growing demands
AxioCam IC grows as your tasks dictate. Combination with
numerous AxioVision modules means it can be used in a great
range of materials research applications or basic biological tasks.
Together with AxioVision, AxioCam IC adapts quickly to growing
requirements.
