The Leica DFC550 digital camera with up to 12.5 Megapixel resolution quickly captures high-speed, highest-quality real-time images for darkfield, brightfield and phase contrast microscopy in life science, clinical and industry applications.

By using a patented pixel shifting technology - also called microscanning - absolutely clean high quality images can be created without interpolation artefacts.

Intuitive tools provide easy, real-time imaging and allow images to be adjusted and focused directly on the computer screen. The easy store and recall allows the user to retrieve the same settings for further analysis or comparison.


Color Co-site Sampling

Color co-site sampling – no color interpolation needed to achieve highest quality color images.

12.5 Megapixel Resolution

Up to 12 Megapixel resolution – conveniently captures high-resolution images even in low light conditions for life science, research and industry applications.

Single FireWire-B connection for data and power

The camera kit comes with a high quality screwlock firewire B-B cable and a firewire B PCI-express card – for ease of use and simple installation.

Best in class concerning color reproduction

The improved color calibration and color rendering of the DFC550 is regarded as the best of all Leica micrcosope cameras - virtually defining the standard when it comes to highest color quality.
