The ORCA-Flash4.0 scientific CMOS camera now includes Hamamatsu’s new ImageConductor Connectivity™, a built-in camera function that automatically senses which of the camera’s two output connections, USB 3.0 or Camera Link, is being used.
Hamamatsu Releases the ORCA-Flash4.0 Scientific CMOS Camera Now With ImageConductor Connectivity
The default USB 3.0 configuration provides 30 frames per second imaging at the full 2K x 2K resolution. If a faster frame rate is needed now or later, the camera can be easily upgraded by purchasing a high-speed PCI x8 Camera Link board and cable. The addition of the Camera Link board to a user’s computer makes 100 frames per second of full-resolution data possible.
Featuring exceptional quantum efficiency and low noise, the ORCA-Flash4.0’s high sensitivity means extreme versatility. This generation 2 sCMOS camera has quantum efficiency values of over 70% at 600 nm and 50% at 750 nm. In every configuration and at every speed, the ORCA-Flash4.0 has only 1.3 electrons median (1.9 electrons rms) read noise. It also features a 6.5 μm × 6.5 μm pixel size, which is ideal for microscopic applications. The combination of these features makes the ORCA-Flash4.0 camera ideal for demanding microscopy applications such as super-resolution microscopy, TIRF microscopy, ratio imaging, high-speed calcium ion imaging, FRET, real-time confocal microscopy, and many more.
