Portable, High Resolution Dissecting Scope Camera
1x-5x focus stacking photography, 1x-∞ field photography & 3D photogrammetry
The primary function of a Macropod as a photographic apparatus is to create focus stacked (z-stack) images of a specimen. The apparatus includes a rigid longitudinal member having a longitudinal axis and includes translational and rotational stages that are designed to move the specimen relative to the camera mount. The translational device allows for precise positioning and panoramic style imaging. The rotational device allows for the specimen to be automatically rotated 360° around a first axis that is perpendicular to the longitudinal axis to generate 3D movies and point clouds that can be used for 3D printing, volumetric analyses and as visual aids for research and educational purposes. Macropod systems achieve all this while maintaining a compact, rigid and reliable platform that can be easily transported and carried into the field using only the provided backpack. Macropod systems are available in a variety of configurations for imaging a diverse range of scientific, industrial and material specimens. Each system includes all necessary hardware and software for immediate use. The 1-5x stereoscopic lens is best used for pinned insects, rocks, fossils, minerals, metals, plants and slides that are smaller, but not limited to, 4 cm in size. A vertical stage is included for all subjects larger than 4 cm in size.
3D Modeling Capabilities
The secondary function of a Macropod is to create 3D models of 1) small specimens ranging from >100 microns to 2) broad landscapes/terrain/outcrops in the field (∞). Imagery acquired is processed using photo- grammetry in order to create an accurate 3D representa- tion of the subject being photographed.
Additional Capabilities and Advantages
~ Macropod imaging systems utilize reflected, transmitted, fluorescent and cross-polarized light sources.
~ The systems can be configured for each lighting technique while ensuring a smooth, even light distribution.
~ The camera body incorporates a GPS receiver so that images captured in the field can be georeferenced in a geospatial reference frame.
~ Sample preparation is not needed and imaging methods are non-destructive.
~ The systems are capable of imaging dry specimens as well as specimens in solution.
~ Macroscopic Solutions’ imaging systems are modular, meaning they are compatible with other Macropod prod- ucts. Additional and future capabilities can be added with- out the need to purchase separate systems.
Macropod imaging systems are designed to be ergo- nomically beneficial. The microscope/camera live view is transferred to a computer screen which eliminates eye and back strain commonly experienced when look- ing through microscope binoculars. The motorization/automation of the system naturally lends itself to ergonomics and work flow. Light intensity and other camera settings are adjusted through a user- friendly interface on the computer.
