The Nikon DXM1200c 12.6 Megapixel brilliant digital images with advanced technology: Nikon's non-interpolating IPS (Inter Pixel Stepping) high density imaging technology offers the capability for breathtaking images of up to 12.6 million output pixels at resolutions of 4,116 x 3,072, enabling enlarged image data for documentation and publication-quality printing.

Peltier Cooling Device & Low-Noise design allows clear, low-light image capture: Nikon's exclusive signal-to-noise digital circuit technology design incorporates a Peltier cooling mechanism that significantly reduces heat induced noise. The new CCD sensor provides improved image resolution and the new software provides enhanced camera control, digital viewing and capture of images in standard and ultra low-light applications.

High speed data transfer to accommodate work efficiency and precision: Live image displays at high speed data transfers of 12 frames per second for precise viewing and focusing surpasses previous imaging standards.

ACT-1C Software INCLUDED: Intuitive ACT-1C software operational capabilities simplify imaging enhancements and corrections with the click of the mouse. Live field of view frames available to capture the precise on-screen image at up to 14 different file modes & image sizes. ACT-1C offers the flexibility of Auto-Exposure or manual exposure preferences. File merging capabilities for multi-channel imaging applications is also available.

Direct PC-to-Camera Connection: The DXM1200C camera head connects to the PC via a single cable to the PCI interface board installed into the computer without additional wiring or power source.

Standard C-mount attachment of the DXM1200C camera allows a wide selection of magnifications: Nikon has developed a new wide-field relay lens exclusively for the DXM1200C. Nikon recommends the C-Mount 0.7X DXM Relay Lens, designed to provide less shading and more flatness in the images [optional].
