The DFC digital FireWire photomicrographic cameras launched by Leica Microsystems Inc. are designed for documentation, presentation and analysis. The line includes seven cameras, each with a FireWire interface that provides near-real-time viewing on a computer monitor, reducing the need to focus and orient the image through eye tubes. The cameras are compatible with the company's microscopes, stereomicroscopes, macroscopes and image-analysis software. Proprietary Image Manager software is provided. The company says that the instruments produce high-color-fidelity, high-resolution, high-speed images for microscopy applications.
