    What is the file format of the captured image?
    EVO Cam captures images in Bitmap (.bmp) format, being a very widely compatible format. Bitmap images do not lose information caused by compression, maintaining maximum detail in the saved image. EVO Cam saves images with an automatic sequence number, which can also include a time and date stamp.
    Do I need a PC/software to capture images?
    No. EVO Cam captures images direct to a USB memory stick so there is no need for a PC/software.
    Can I capture images to an external hard drive?
    Yes. Just plug in an external drive to the USB port instead of the USB memory stick.
    Is the EVO Cam USB port for connecting to a PC?
    No. The USB port allows images to be captured direct to a USB memory stick, without the need for a PC.
    Can I use EVO Cam with just a monitor?
    Yes. EVO Cam simply connects via HDMI to any HDMI-enabled monitor.
    What is the auto focus range of EVO Cam?
    The auto focus range is approximately 1cm (depending on the objective and magnification). This is to allow for some variation in sample height. If there is a large variation in sample size then the camera position will need to be adjusted.
    How is magnification calculated?
    Magnification is a combination of both the objective lens used and also the monitor size. EVO Cam displays the current magnification on-screen, which can be configured for different objective lenses and monitor screen sizes. Vision Engineering's quoted magnifications are based on a 25" monitor.
    How long does it take to set-up EVO Cam for use?
    Out of the box, EVO Cam takes minutes to set-up. Then simply turn the camera on and you are seconds away from viewing and capturing full HD images.
    Do I need training before using EVO Cam?
    No. EVO Cam’s intuitive controls makes it easy to use from the start.
    What is the benefit of having a 30:1 zoom ratio?
    Users can perform a large number of investigations, from low to high magnification without changing the objective or losing the focus plane, thereby saving time and increasing efficiency.
    Does the camera have auto focus?
    Yes, but it can also be switched to manual focus if required.
    What is the field of view of EVO Cam?
    The field of view is dependent on the magnification at which you are viewing and the objective lens that you are using. The widest field of view will be achieved with a lower magnification objective. Field of view reduces as magnification increases. Please refer to the optical data for full details.
    What illumination options are there?

    EVO Cam includes a controllable 8-point LED rightlight, providing optimum shadow-free illumination for a wide range of applications.

    A transmitted substage illumination option (for use with the Ergo stand) permits viewing of a wider range of sample types, such as translucent samples.

    What stands can I use with EVO Cam?
    EVO Cam is a highly flexible solution for a very wide range of applications and environments. Vision Engineering has designed a range of stands to allow tailoring to individual requirements. We will be happy to advise which configuration is best suited for your needs.
    Can I attach filters to the objective lens?
    Yes. The objective lenses each have a standard 52mm thread to accept a range of filters (neutral density, colour, UV and polarisation).
    Can I use EVO Cam for simple measurement?
    Yes. With the optional control console, EVO Cam can be used to perform simple measurements. Sometimes called dimensioning.
    What measurement accuracy can I achieve with EVO Cam?

    Vision Engineering do not quote measurement accuracy for simple on-screen measurement, since there are a wide number of factors which determine measurement accuracy. These include focus position, user skill and calibration.

    Vision Engineering has a range of precision measuring systems, if high accuracy measurement is required (up to ±2µm).

    Is EVO Cam supplied with a monitor?
    EVO Cam can be supplied with or without a monitor. It is important to remember that the monitor is a critical part of the system. A poor quality monitor will adversely affect the image quality obtained from EVO Cam, Please contact your local Vision Engineering branch or distributor for details of our recommended monitors.
    Why would I choose EVO Cam over a stereo microscope?

    This really depends on your application. EVO Cam is comfortable to use, and for the same magnification provides a much bigger field of view than a stereo microscope.

    For example in electronics applications, EVO Cam is great for quickly inspecting areas of circuit boards for broken tracts and component placement.

    In comparison a stereo microscope, like Lynx EVO, provides a 3D image with superior depth perception, being better suited for tasks requiring hand-eye co-ordination, such as hand soldering and rework tasks.
