Designed from the ground up for microscope use,
INSIGHT makes taking pictures easy.
Allows you to take the next step in...
See what you’ve been missing.
What’s the difference between Video
and Digital? The video format limits
camera resolution to 768 X 493 (0.38
mega pixels) while
digital cameras have
no such restrictions.
768 X 493
Insight’s 1600 x 1200
(1.92 mega pixel)
image sensor easily
outperforms video.
The difference in resolution can
be seen in the following images.
(Photos are unretouched and
fields of view have been matched
for comparison)
Stop fragmenting your work
environment. View and capture your
images right on the computer screen.
Don’t use separate video monitors or
small LCD screens to view your
images, followed by cumbersome
transfer of image data via memory
cards to your computer.
Stop wasting time and money with
film cameras. Can you imagine not
having to take multiple pictures to get
one good shot? Can you imagine not
having to wait for film processing to
see your results? With Insight what
you see is what you get, and you get
it right away!
Clean signals make a difference.
Where is the cleanest signal? Right at
the CCD sensor. That’s where Insight

digitizes its signal, not after conversion
to the video format and a long trip

Direct mapping of square pixels.
Do you need an undistorted picture?
Insight’s square CCD pixels map
directly to square image pixels. The
perfect geometry of the CCD sensor is
preserved in the final image. Video
cameras are subject to distortion
introduced by rectangular CCD pixels
and conversion to the video format.
With the Insight camera,
the accuracy of your
measurement is never
in question.
Why pay the same price for
a lower resolution video
system? Insight provides over 5
times more pixels than video
