Color Microscope Camera – DP28

The DP28 digital microscope camera combines powerful features, precise color accuracy, and 4K resolution across a wide field of view to provide stunning images for conferencing, teaching, and clinical research. With smart features, the camera eases and accelerates your microscopy tasks while delivering high image quality.

4K Ultra-High-Definition Onscreen Images

The images on your screen look exactly as they appear through the microscope’s eyepieces.

  • 8.9-megapixel CMOS sensor, global shutter, and 4K resolution at 32 frames per second (fps)
  • Smooth live images with no distortion
  • 64 fps full HD live images

DP28 Camera

Microscope Camera with a Large Field of View

With a large field of view (FOV) up to FN25, see and capture more of your sample with images that are sharp, flat, and in focus from the center to the periphery. Pair the camera with Olympus’ X Line objectives and a 0.63X camera adaptor designed for a wide FOV to leverage the power of the camera’s 1-inch image sensor.

* Your microscope system must be compatible with an FN25 FOV

Improved Color Performance

The DP28 camera realizes good color reproduction and color balance on your monitor.

  • Dedicated ICC profiles show your samples in their natural colors
  • Common life science dyes look the way you expect them to
  • Use the camera with Olympus’ TruColor LED and BX53 microscope for a complete color-optimized system

Easily Share Microscope Camera Images

Make your collaborations more efficient. All your critical data—images, annotation, and live measurements—can be easily displayed and shared together locally or remotely.

  • Share images and data using cellSens software with the NetCam solution or remote image sharing feature* with the standalone camera control module
  • Single click to start image sharing
  • Support for NIST, GDPR, and antivirus software* for safer sharing

* Remote image sharing and antivirus software are optional.

Smart Microscope Camera

  • Olympus Smart Image Averaging (OSIA) suppresses noise and eliminates artifacts while maintaining a fast frame rate
  • Focus peaking helps you identify which sample regions are currently in focus
  • High contrast mode enables easier image acquisition with a high signal-to-noise ratio so that you can capture high-quality images from dim samples during polarization and fluorescence microscopy
  • Fast live function provides a consistently high displayed frame rate during long-exposure imaging

Observation With Comfort

The CX23 microscope is designed to support comfortable observation. Easily adjust the interpupillary distance and eyepoint height to their own comfort and the left and right diopters for appropriate focus for each eye. The locking pin keeps the observation tube in place while use.
