Microscope Cameras

Fast and Efficient Digital Imaging with ZEISS Axiocams

Axiocam Family

Visualization and Documentation

As each application has very specific requirements, there is a wide range of different digital camera models to choose from. Different pixel sizes, for example, regulate camera sensitivity and spatial resolution. Lower pixel count enables higher frame rates and larger sensors offer better coverage of the field of view.


  • Capture high-resolution images
  • Impressive price-performance ratio
  • Maximum light sensitive


Optical Performance Counts When Your Research Pushes the Boundaries

For many parts of a microscope, the optical performance is key. Choose the best objectives for your system. ZEISS provides high experience in building world-class optics to find the objectives dedicated for your application.
