Lumenera’s INFINITY5-5 is a high quality 5 megapixel microscopy camera that provides high speeds at high resolution. The INFINITY5-5 is based on the Sony® Pregius™ global shutter CMOS sensor that rivals sCMOS technology. With fast focusing at high frame rates of up to 75 frames per second, the INFINITY5-5 performs in a wide range of applications.

The INFINITY5-5’s 2/3 inch sensor format accommodates a 2464 x 2056 resolution with 3.45 micron pixels. The HDMI output allows the INFINITY5-5 to connect to both a computer and HDMI TV or monitor for applications where knowledge sharing is critical
