♦ Super Canon optics and a dedicated 24 MP digital camera for highest image quality. Canon Opacity suppression will largely suppresses the effects of cataracts and other ocular opacities.
♦ With the CX-1 following photography modes are available; Color, Red-free, Cobalt, Fluorescein Angiography and Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) Alignment and observation with the CX-1 can either be done by the viewfinder or the large EOS LCD screen.
♦ FAF Imaging for the diagnosis of retinal disease is a relatively new diagnostic technique that provides more information on the health of the retinal pigment epithelium. FAF has proven to be very useful for the early detection of age related Macula Degeneration (AMD), one of the leading causes of visual impairment. Recent studies indicate that FAF Imaging can also aid in the diagnosis of a variety of other diseases and even in the detection of intraocular tumors.
♦ Canon’s own EOS digital camera technology, with its renowned image processing capabilities, is adapted exclusively for Canon retinal cameras. The EOS Retina camera provides optimal retinal imaging.And it is completely integrated with the functions of the retinal camera. A further advantage is that the digital camera body can be exchanged easily in case of upgrading to a newer model or service requirements.
♦ The image processing that is applied, reduces the gradation of overexposure.
Low-intensity sections (macula) are clearly visible, while maintaining the gradation in tone of the high-intensity portion (the optic disc).
♦ The EOS Retina is fully integrated with the functions of the retinal camera, it not only captures the best possible retinal image but also functions as IRED observation; LCD monitor and Auto Exposure sensor for real time flash control . Combining these functions greatly contribute to a compact and lightweight retinal camera.
