Digital Camera Combinations
Compatible with the DS-U2 and DS-L2 camera controller series, the DS-Ri1 high-resolution camera brings the total number of Digital Sight (DS) camera head options to 7, providing 14 different digital camera system combinations.
Better Fluorescence Images
The DS-Ri1 uses the Peltier cooling system to maintain the CCD at 10°C below ambient temperature, effectively minimizing thermal noise contributions.
True Color for Samples
Nikon’s newly developed color matching logic achieves unprecedented color reproducibility. You can develop hue and saturation conversion matrices optimized for the characteristic colors of your microscope samples, and faithfully record the color of dyed samples. The ability to capture the colors observed with the microscope enables high precision color analysis in all fields of medicine and industry.
NIS-Elements Imaging Software
The DS-Ri1 can be controlled by Nikon's powerful NIS-Elements imaging software platform. NIS-Elements successfully integrates microscope image capture, document data management and analysis. Comprehensive control of microscope, camera and peripheral devices makes it possible to configure a multidimensional time-lapse imaging system easily and efficiently.
12.7 Megapixel High-Definition Images
New, high-precision pixel shift technology brings high resolution to the CCD. The camera features super-high pixel output of 12.7 megapixels and high resolution at over 2,200 TV line.
The DS-Ri1 uses USB2 interfaces to connect DS-L2 and DS-U2 controllers to PCs for simple installation and easy configuration. The DS-Ri1 offers Scene Mode support for DS-L2 standalone operation. Popularized by Nikon’s Coolpix camera series, scene modes help to set ideal camera settings for different types of imaging. And operating from a PC, the scene mode is accessible but can also be disabled for high-bit depth, raw format imaging at up to 12 bits per channel for 36 bit color images.
Smooth Live Image Display
Accelerated data transfer offers a high maximum frame rate of 19 fps/ 1.4 M. Live images are displayed and updated smoothly, so focusing from a monitor is extremely simple and natural.
Fast Focus and Acquisition
The DS-Ri1 features fast focusing up to 19 fps, and even faster rates in binning or region-of-interest modes. Additionally, rapid acquisition is possible in full-frame pixel stepping mode.
