Color Microscope Camera – DP74

The color microscope camera DP74 combination of high image quality and smart assist guidance dedicated for microscopy provides you faster and more comfortable imaging.

Capture High – Quality Images Quickly and Easily

Smooth, high resolution, and high sensitivity—the DP74 color camera is optimized for microscopic observation.

Excellent Color Fidelity for Most Life Science Stains

The DP74 camera’s multiaxis color reproduction technology adjusts color independently for individual stained samples, providing excellent color fidelity for a wide variety of stains.

Accelerate Your Workflow with the Navigator

Easily pinpoint the area of interest with the position navigator.

  • Identify the position you’re observing within a sample using the map
  • Record images with context information
  • Link micro and macro images

Context Map And High-Magnification Images Stored in a Single File

One of the Widest Field of Views Available

The DP74 color fluorescence camera with a 0.63X C-mount adaptor features a wide field of view equivalent to field number 21 (FN21) with dedicated brightness and color shading correction and seamless stitching.

Microscopy Dedicated Features

Intelligent camera control and image processing make observation easier, faster, and more comfortable.

  • Automatic, fast camera settings adjustment
  • Reduce excitation damage of fluorescence samples with smart noise reduction

Easily Capture Digital Microscope Images

  • 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
