The DP73 digital color microscope camera from Olympus (Center Valley, PA) delivers 14-bit depth and 17.28 mb pixel resolution. The device includes enhanced pixel-shifting optical technology. The Olympus Fine Detail function identifies edges and applies the appropriate filter to reduce pseudo-colors and moiré artifacts. The advanced 3-CCD mode and 8-color adjustment algorithm ensures color separation.
The DP73 also offers an optional WiDER feature, which provides an extended dynamic range capability so that dark, light, and mid-tone regions all are imaged without sacrificing detail in other tonal regions. The utility adjusts gain and pixel graduation (including adjacent pixels) in real time, raising the level of dark areas while maintaining the level of bright areas.
