Taking the Perfect Picture: The Science of Microscopy Cameras

Since the invention of the camera—and possibly before—humans have strived to create images that capture their subjects in the most true-to-life manner. The advent of digital imaging in the life sciences was a boon for researchers, because they could immediately see the images they created rather than waiting hours or days for them to be developed and printed from photographic film. Understanding the multitude of variables that go into the creation of a digital picture—from microscope optics to optical sensor architecture to image-processing algorithms—and how they impact the final product, are essential to generating the highest-quality image data. This poster introduces the reader to the world of digital imaging for microscopy in the life sciences and provides valuable information about the technology and methods involved.
