The INFINITY1-5 camera is excellent for applications that demand extremely high resolution. It produces a full 2592 x 1944 video preview with speeds of 7 frames per second (fps) in both color and monochrome formats. Full 5.0 megapixel sensor allows users to view fine detail in samples and provide a high resolution preview to large monitors and overhead projectors.

INFINITY CAPTURE, an intuitive image capture program, and INFINITY ANALYZE, a full image analysis package offering; camera control, measurement, annotations, tiling and post capture enhancement, are both included. Camera and software are combined to create a complete microscopy imaging solution for your application. An Advanced Features USB-Key is required to unlock the two Advanced Features (Multi-Focus Composition & Spherical Aberration Correction) which otherwise run in demo mode only.
