Nidek announced the launch of its new VersaCam Digital Medical Scope. The VersaCam α portable fundus imaging unit provides high quality images with simple functionality, according to Nidek. The newly added auto shot function makes it easier to operate, and image capture without pressing a button reduces chances of image blur. Virtually “touch free” operation is now possible with the auto focus and auto shot functions. The operator holds the unit at the correct distance and images are acquired automatically.
The VersaCam α contains a 5-megapixel clear-color camera with 45° horizontal angle of view (40° vertical) providing high quality digital imaging. The unit can be operated continuously for 3 hours without recharging.
