Leeds HDR Camera Web

Leeds is pleased to announce the new  CMOS5 Camera with exclusive Spot 5.5 HDR software available only to Leeds customers.

Illuminating bullets and cartridge cases under a microscope presents a challenge due to their cylindrical shape. When illuminated from above, the light reflecting off the top of the sample is at a near vertical angle and produces a strong “bloom” of light, whereas the light reflecting off the sides of a sample is at an oblique angle and is much less intense. This results in images with unbalanced light intensity. High Dynamic Range (HDR) algorithms compensate for these differences by imaging each area of the sample with different camera exposures, combining the best exposures for each region into a single image.
