The MAGUS CDF70 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 a 20MP sensor and delivers realistic images (5440x3648px) with the clearly visible fine details of objects and their structures. The camera is recommended for use with 4x 10x and 20x objectives. At maximum resolution video is captured at 20fps. It is enough for adjusting the precise focusing of the microscope. For classroom demonstrations recording fast-moving processes and observing moving objects you can change the camera resolution to 2736x1824px or 1824x1216px. In these modes the frequency increases to 48fps and 58fps the transitions between frames become softer and the camera can capture very small movements of the sample. The camera is equipped with a USB3.0 interface. The data transfer speed is 10 times faster than USB2.0 cameras. This 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 large size sensor is 1''. The size of the sensor affects the image quality: The larger the sensor is the cleaner the image and the greater the color depth and the wider the field of view will be. The 1' sensor with 2.4x2.4µm pixel size provides light sensitivity of 462mV with 1/30s. To achieve the maximum field of view without distortion we recommend using an adapter with a magnification of 1x.

Software features

The camera uses software to display images on an external display take photographs record video edit images and measure the 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 adapter rings (not included) to fit the tube diameter.

Key features:

  • Camera with a 5440x3648px resolution for brightfield and darkfield observations with 4x 10x and 20x objectives: The higher the resolution is the finer the details will be that you can see
  • 20fps at 5440x3648px resolution: easy focus adjustment
  • 48fps and 58fps at 2736x1824px and 1824x1216px resolutions: easy classroom demonstrations observations of moving objects and video recording. The sample moves without jerkiness and lags.
  • SONY Exmor color CMOS backlit sensor provides low noise level and high light sensitivity even in low-light conditions. You will get clearer brighter and more color-saturated images.
  • USB3.0 interface for fast smooth data transfer
  • Software with photo video recording editing external display functions linear and angular measurements
