The new KoPa AIR digital microscope camera is a USB digital microscope that offers both WiFi and USB live image output with up to 5.0 megapixel USB resolution, and live (40 FPS) streaming WiFi at 1280 x 960 resolution. The camera has a full suite of auto and manual controls in the USB software as well as the free, downloadable KoPa Vision App. The camera works well in USB mode, and really excels in its WiFi capability.
How does a USB microscope work? It’s simple -- microscopes equipped with digital cameras, either integrated into the scope itself or capable of having a digital camera mounted to it through an adapter, have a USB port on their side that allows users to connect the camera to a computer or other device. This allows the image of whatever is being observed to appear on a computer monitor or larger screen, and computer software can often be used to control the digital microscope camera to focus and alter the image further.
Controls & Operation
On-camera control consists of a switch on the back (Off/USB/WiFi) which places the unit into USB or WiFi mode. After downloading the App, it is a process of connecting your mobile device to the Kopa network in the WiFi settings on your device. The antenna is internally-located for security and to optimize the WiFi signal performance in industrial environments.
USB output operates via a user-friendly, Windows-only software suite that includes measuring software among a host of other features. WiFi output operates via a free, downloadable App. The refresh rate ranges from 15fps at 2592 x 1944 (maximum resolution) to 40fps at 1280 x 960.
The camera features a standard C-mount interface to fit any microscope with a C-mount adapter. In addition, the camera has a tripod mount on the base, allowing for use as a stand-alone imaging device (with a C-mount standard macro or zoom lens fitted). As a major upgrade over the C500W, the KoPa AIR camera also features a 5000mAh lithium Ion battery, capable of operating 8 hours on a full charge.
Kopa Cam Software
The software offers a comprehensive range of features including measuring software, drawing tools and annotation. Adjustable parameters include white balance, exposure, saturation, brightness, contrast, sharpness and backlight compensation among others. The App has simple touch screen buttons with both still and video capability as in USB mode. Image format includes: jpg, png, bmp and pdf. NOTE: This software is not MAC compatible.
The Omano OM136C monocular compound microscope is one of our best-selling school microscopes and more than merits our Best-Rated award. As our most popular school microscope, it is ideal for this offering and will last a lifetime of classroom use. Recommended for Grades 5-12.
The Omano OM136C-L includes a monocular microscope head that is inclined at an ergonomic 45 degrees. The head rotates through 360 degrees for flexible viewing. A single wide field WF 10x eyepiece combines with three parcentered, coated, 160mm achromatic objective lenses (4x, 10x, 40x Spring), to provide magnification levels of 40x, 100x and 400x. The objectives are set in a quadruple nosepiece so that an optional 100x oil immersion objective can be added for maximum magnification of 1,000x.
Condenser & Illumination
The condenser is a professional Abbe 1.25 N.A with included iris diaphragm and filter holder for optimal adjustments. Illumination is 6V 20W transmitted halogen or rechargeable LED, both with variable light intensity. The LED version requires a 30-minute charge to last all day long and is a popular microscope for field work.

Compound Microscope Digital Camera
The OptixCam Summit K2 series digital microscope camera turns your optical microscope into a fully-functional digital microscope. Plug it into your computer’s USB port and it automatically powers up. Your workflow becomes more user-friendly, more ergonomic, and perfect for collaboration.
This digital microscope camera lets you sit back and study samples on screen, without hunching over the eyepiece. In routine life science applications, you capture remarkably clean images that are ideal for cataloging and recording for posterity. It allows you to save and document images in industrial or medical reports, with easy annotation right from the included software. It transforms biology classes into launchpads for exploration by enabling students to see and share easily.
A dynamic range of 1.3 to 14 megapixels for big deals and small details.
The details matter to us just as much as they matter to you. That’s why we carry a range of versatile microscope cameras with multiple resolution options, making these cameras easy on the eyes and easy on your budget (if that’s what you need) too.
Summit K2 cameras range from:
- Low (1.3) megapixels, suitable for hobbyists, classrooms, and other applications where affordability, durability, and good resolution are most important.
- Medium (3.1) megapixels, suitable for biological research and industrial applications that require an excellent mix of visibility and affordability.
- Mid (5.0) megapixels, suitable for industrial inspectors and life science researchers who have departmental budget constraints, but need sharp images and easy functionality.
- High (10) megapixels, suitable for healthcare professionals and researchers with a greater budget who require high resolution image projection in large-format applications.
- Advanced (14) megapixels, suitable for complex microbiological applications where performance and image quality are all that matters.
Built around the superior Aptina MT9T001 CMOS color sensor.
Rigged with high-resolution Aptina MT9T001 CMOS color sensors, Summit K2 digital microscope cameras deliver vivid and vibrant images, even in low-light environments, and allow you to manipulate images while maintaining true-to-life colors and textures.
Compatible with PC and MAC.
Connect and power up easily through USB 2.0, no external power required, and dig into your work with the included K2View software (PC only). It’s built to make your workflow easier, with features like:
- Geometric measuring using lines, circles, and angles that are scaled to your magnification level in real time.
- Notation, so all the important info you need to package with your images is right where it needs to be.
- Anti-flicker, so images look sharp under a variety of ambient lighting.
- Time-lapse photography so you can easily batch images together, tracking changes as you go.
- Auto/manual exposure, making it easy to get the image you need.
- White balance control, so the images you capture look the way they should.
- Storage in JPG, BMP, TIFF, TGA, and RAW format, so images can be used across a range of platforms.
The cameras also work just fine with your existing TWAIN, DirectX, and Image Capture (MAC only) software. You can also download K2View from our site.
Excellent image reproduction with 0.5x Reducing Lens.
No fuss, just focus. Many competitively priced digital microscope cameras magnify the image through the eyepiece, so the image you see on your monitor doesn’t accurately represent what you see looking down the scope with your own eyes. That’s not good enough for you. We counter that by including a 0.5x reducing lens. This prevents over-magnification and produces real images. You can trust what you see.
Summit K2 series digital microscope cameras already work in applications spanning industries. They can be retrofitted onto most existing optical microscope models, and come standard on Omano digital microscopes.
They add some swagger to your passion for microscopy and make sharing a lot easier. You don’t have to go on your microscopy adventures alone anymore.
