The PL-A682 is a high resolution microscopy camera designed to capture publication quality images. The camera has a 6.6 megapixel resolution and can provide 5 frames per second at that resolution to the computer. For preview, the resolution can be decimated to provide up to 88 frames per second at VGA resolution. The region of interest is user selectable and there are multiple decimation modes that make the camera very flexible.

Coupled with PixeLINK Capture software, the PL-A682 becomes a highly productive image capture tool for bright-field microscopy. All camera functions can be controlled from the software application and high resolution images or AVI video clips can be captured with ease.
