Capturing and documenting a true-to-life representation of your sample is an important aspect of microscopy, achieved using the digital camera. Digital cameras specialized for microscopy come in all shapes and sizes, and selecting the best camera for your system can be a daunting task. It can be of help to consider four main features that essentially dictate camera performance: color reproduction, sensitivity, live image quality and resolution. Being aware of what these parameters really mean for your chosen application will guide you to a camera to complete your microscope system and truly enhance your experience.

Leica Application Suite Advanced Fluorescence (LAS AF) 3.2 focuses on 3D analysis, 3D measurements and 3D visualization. The 3D functionalities are especially interesting for users of Leica SR GSD 3D: They make Ground State Depletion (GSD) data visible as volume rendered images and therefore add a third dimension to super-resolution images.

Light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM) is a technique with a vivid development [1, 2]. In contrast to epi-illumination microscopy the sample is illuminated with a thin light sheet orthogonally to the detection path. Most often the sheet is formed by rapidly scanning a laser beam across the sample. This illumination yields intrinsic optical sectioning and reduction of photobleaching and phototoxicity since excitation is limited to fluorophores inside the observation plane. This is particularly beneficial for long term imaging in developmental biology and reduces image background [3-5].

Photonic Science has introduced a full HDTV low noise cooled sCMOS camera. The camera delivers read out noise as low as 1.2 electrons at 100MHz overall scanning frequency and genuine 16 bit dynamic range at 30 fps.
The camera is actively compensating for fixed pattern noise, non-uniform response and gain balance on a parallel bus read out architecture. It can be triggered with rolling shutter mode at 30 fps, in full area scan or with reduced ROI scan for faster acquisition rates up to 3000 fps.
