New scoring criteria for our popular microscope camera ranking
In their pursuit of even better meeting individual customer requirements, camera manufacturers invest a lot of energy in the development of their products. In order to adequately incorporate the recent advancements in this field into our microscope ranking, we have expanded the range of scoring criteria and also made some slight changes to the scoring system.
New - the "ISO range" and "colour depth" categories:
With the latest-generation digital cameras (provided they have a high ISO setting = light sensitivity) it is possible to create quality images even when light conditions are poor. Due to significant improvements in sensor technology, coupled with a higher signal-to-noise ratio and greater colour depth, these cameras now offer the possibility to effectively process images at higher ISO settings.
Changed - the weighting of the "pixel number" category within the scoring system:
The weighting of the pixel number criterion was reduced, since particularly in microscopy, higher pixel numbers do not yield any additional advantage. This is because the resolution capability of the microscope, and not the camera’s pixel number, is decisive for the level of detail that can be achieved.
