We have recently improved the camera fixing with enhanced rigidity for larger cameras and a simplified focus and orientation control
With custom designed optics, the Cairn Multicam offers superior image quality on large sCMOS size camera sensors. The unit accommodates three of our standard filter cubes allowing light to be distributed on the basis of wavelength, polarisation state or focal depth.
Each cube has fine mechanical X-Y adjustment for pixel overlay or deliberate image offset. The input of the instrument has a variable rectangular aperture enabling the use of cropped sensor mode on all detectors. Each port can be fitted with different magnification optics to accommodate all popular sensor sizes and a wide range of fields of view. As the internal optics are infinity corrected, manual or motorised filter changers can also be fitted to input and output ports. The MultiCam uses our own lens design to support the Larger Sensors of scientific CMOS and some EMCCDs cameras. The instruments have a correspondingly larger aperture and better correction to give enhanced performance with all sensors.
Device drivers are included in some commercial imaging packages to assist registration and to allow real-time and off-line fluorescence overlays from multiple cameras. Alternatively we can advise on Master / Slave configurations using multiple computers and commercial or Open Source software. The simple and accessible design makes the MultiCam an excellent platform for alternative applications, such as polarisation imaging, multi-depth imaging or simultaneous high speed and high resolution studies by making using of cameras optimised for different attributes.
