Nikon Releases DS-Fi3 Microscope Camera and DS-L4 Ds Camera Control Unit

Nikon Corporation has announced the release of the DS-Fi3 microscope camera and the DS-L4 DS camera control unit. Though the DS-Fi3 is a general-purpose classed camera, 5.9 megapixel CMOS image sensor is incorporated. The specification of the DS-Fi3 such as high-resolution color imaging, high sensitivity, low noise, high-speed live display, excellent color reproducibility has been improved as well. The new DS-L4 tablet-type camera control unit is being released at the same time as a successor of the DS-L3, which is highly regarded in terms of space saving and its easy operation. Nikon released the new DS-Fi3 Microscope Camera which is a dramatically improved digital camera for microscopes that integrates functions of the existing "High-resolution color camera head DS-Fi2"/"High-resolution cooled camera head Fi1c"/"High-speed color camera head Vi1". Display and analysis of captured images is possible with imaging software NIS-Elements. The new DS-L4 Microscope Camera Control Unit inherits the space saving and the easy operation from the DS-L3 and has been improved its display speed; display resolution; and operability thanks to newest technology. The DS-Fi3 Microscope Camera is equipped with the 5.9 megapixel CMOS image sensor. This enables capture of high-resolution images of up to 5.9-megapixels (2,880 x 2,048 pixels). Compared with the previous models (DS-Fi2/Fi1c/Vi1), the DS-Fi3 has a significantly higher quantum efficiency (improved double) and lower readout noise. With its low noise circuit design, sensitivity equivalent to from ISO 50 to ISO 3200 can be set, allowing it to capture clear images with less noise in the bright field as well as in fluorescence observation. The DS-Fi3 performs live display at 30 fps (1,440 x 1,024 pixels) due to the high-speed data readout achieved with the CMOS image sensor and USB3.0 connection to the PC. The previous product DS-Fi2 performs live display at a frame rate of 18 fps (1,280 x 960 pixels). This means that the DS-Fi3 has a frame rate that is approximately twice that of the DS-Fi2. Because of its fast live image display, focusing and selection of observation locations can be performed smoothly. The DS-Fi3 is equipped with the color reproducibility algorithm involved with the advanced model DS-Ri2 which allows capturing of images in colors equivalent to that of the observed sample. The DS-Fi3 incorporates the camera control unit and does not require a separate camera control unit for its connection to PC, as is the case with the DS-Ri2/Qi2. Also as an option the DS-L4 can be selected and create standalone set without PC. DS-L4 DS Camera Control Unit has the following features: Space saving: Idea of compact design is taken over from the DS-L3 and improved the visibility to the wider tablet display; Allows easy configuration and is easy to operate the DS-Fi3 and other microscopes; smooth operation is also possible to multi-touch method. (DS-Ri2 will be supported from January 2017). Allows to perform camera control, live display, and image storage via wireless/wired LAN Supports Windows PCs, tablets, Android, and iMac terminals in addition to iPad terminals. (iPads will be supported from January 2017).

Nikon Corporation Releases Series of KeyMission Action and Wearable Cameras, KeyMission 170 and KeyMission 80

Nikon Corporation announced the release of its series of KeyMission action and wearable cameras, designed to help users share their missions, from the everyday to the extreme, and the stories behind them.

The company unveils two more models in its action series, the KeyMission 170 and the KeyMission 80. The KeyMission 170, which is shockproof and waterproof, captures dynamic 170 wide-angle 4K UHD videos and vivid images. With intuitive interfaces and simple controls, even first-time action camera users can record adventures effortlessly. Versatile shooting modes like Add Slow Motion, Superlapse Movie and Time-lapse Movie are available for creating dramatic scenes of any adventure. The ultra-slim KeyMission 80 is a tough wearable camera designed for quick shooting of stills and movies, enabling users to record every moment of their experiences as it happens. Featuring an exclusively designed small NIKKOR lens, this compact camera enables capture of high-quality images. It is equipped with a second camera with 4.9 million effective pixels and an LCD monitor for easy selfies. The SnapBridge 360/170 app is exclusive to KeyMission 360 and KeyMission 170, and enables camera's remote shooting and movie editing, while the KeyMission 80 supports the SnapBridge app. Both SnapBridge 360/170 app and SnapBridge app allow the camera to be constantly connected to a smart device, so that photos taken with the camera can be automatically transferred to a smart device.
