The MAGUS CDF30 digital camera is designed for the brightfield and darkfield microscopy technique. It offers a low noise level and high light sensitivity. The camera is equipped with an 8.3MP sensor and delivers realistic images in 4K resolution (3840x2160pix) with the clearly visible fine details of samples and their structures. It is recommended to use the camera with 4x 10x and 20x objectives as well as with a stereomicroscope. At maximum resolution video is captured at 45fps. This is enough for classroom demonstrations focus adjustment recording fast-moving processes and observing moving samples. At Full HD resolution (1920x1080pix) the rate increases to 70fps and so the transitions between frames become softer and the camera can catch the slightest movement of the sample. The camera is equipped with a USB 3.0 interface. The data transfer speed is 10 times faster than USB 2.0 cameras. The high-speed camera is recommended for professional laboratories research or university training.


The camera is equipped with a SONY Exmor backlit color CMOS sensor. This technology increases light sensitivity and improves camera performance in low-light conditions. The 1/1.2' sensor with 2.9x2.9µm pixel provides light sensitivity of 5970mV/lux/sec. To achieve the maximum field of view without distortion we recommend using an adapter with a magnification of 0.65x to 0.9x.

Software features

The camera uses software to display images on an external display take photographs record video edit images and measure linear and angular dimensions of samples and their structures. Before taking measurements the software must be calibrated for each objective with a calibration slide.


The camera is mounted on the microscope in the trinocular tube/camera port using the C-mount adapter (included). To mount the camera in an eyepiece tube instead of an eyepiece you will need a special C-mount adapter and adapters to fit the tube diameter (not included).

Key features:

  • 4K camera for brightfield and darkfield microscopy observations with 4x 10x and 20x objectives as well as stereomicroscope: The higher the resolution is the finer the details will be that you can see.
  • 45fps at 4K resolution 70fps at Full HD resolution: easy focus adjustment classroom demonstrations observation of moving samples and video recording - the movement of the sample can be seen without jerkiness and lags.
  • SONY Exmor backlit color CMOS sensor provides a low noise level and high light sensitivity even in low-light conditions. You will get clearer brighter and more color-saturated images.
  • USB 3.0 interface for fast smooth data transfer
  • Software with photo video recording editing external display and linear and angular measurements
