DP73 Digital Camera

Olympus offers the latest pixel-shifting technology with the DP73, a 17.28 megapixel cooled digital color camera. The full resolution live display runs at a rapid 15 frames per second for seamless viewing in brightfield and widefield fluorescence imaging. The DP73’s 3CCD Mode offers increased resolving power and expanded color space to capture the most subtle colors. For high dynamic range imaging requirement, the DP73 features the optional wider function preserving color gradations in low-light color fluorescence environments.
