The MAGUS CHD30 digital camera is equipped with a 2MP sensor and produces realistic Full HD images at a resolution of 1920x1080px. The camera features high light sensitivity auto focus function and it is suitable for fluorescent observations.

The camera uses an HDMI interface to connect directly to a TV monitor or projector. In this mode the camera operates autonomously without a connection to a PC. The HDMI interface provides a high and stable transfer rate from the camera to the external screen. You can connect it to a PC via Wi-Fi.

Video is recorded at 60fps or 25fps depending on the video output interface.
The camera combines high FPS and high bandwidth HDMI. Therefore videos are vivid with no freezes or gaps between frames. At maximum resolution the image is well-detailed moving objects are visible without bugs and object movement is displayed without delays.


The camera features a SONY color CMOS sensor with 3.75x3.75µm pixels. The 1/1.9' sensor with 3.45x3.45µm pixels provides light sensitivity of 1120mV with 1/30s. To achieve the maximum field of view without distortion we recommend using an adapter with a magnification of 0.5x to 0.75x.

Auto focus

In HDMI mode the focusing is adjusted automatically. Auto focus makes it easier to capture clear images and helps you avoid glitches during your presentations.

Software features

When connected via an HDMI interface the camera uses built-in 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 Wi-Fi interface is used for connecting to a PC. There is software that can be installed from the included CD.

Additional devices support

In order to use the built-in software connect a mouse to the USB port. The mouse control eliminates vibrations that occur when the user interacts with the camera.
Instead of a mouse you can install a Wi-Fi adapter into the USB port. It is used for connecting and transferring data to a PC.

Photos and videos are saved to the SD card or the flash stick.
The MAGUS product line features LCD monitors designed to be directly mounted on HDMI cameras. The simultaneous use of camera and monitor creates a compact and powerful imaging system for any MAGUS microscope.


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.
