What type of digital interface does the Leica DFC9000 feature?
The Leica DFC9000 GT comes with USB 3.0 interface. The Leica DFC9000 GTC comes with CameraLink interface. Both camera types are shipped with the appropriate PCI board and cables.
What happens if I accidentially connect the Leica DFC9000 GT to a USB 2.0 socket?
The camera will not start.
Can I use my onboard USB 3.0 socket of the PC for the Leica DFC9000 GT?
In many cases you can. Yet, to benefit from the full performance of the camera we recommend that you use the PCI board which is delivered with every camera. For information on how to insert the PCI board, please refer to the camera's instruction for use.
What type of c-mount do you recommend?
The camera features a 4.2 MP sensor with a diagonal of 19 mm. Leica Microsystems developed a specific 1x c-mount which fits perfectly to the 19-mm imaging port of most of the inverted and upright Leica research microscopes such as the Leica DMi8 or the Leica DM6 B.
What type of sensor is used in the Leica DFC9000 GT and Leica DFC9000 GTC?
The core of both cameras is the 4.2 MP original sCMOS sensor of BAE with a maximun of 82% quantum efficiency, depending on wavelength.
What does "sCMOS" stand for?
