Hamamatsu ORCA Flash 4.0 V3

We’ve advanced our camera technology, so you can advance your science

Building on our extensive experience with high performance scientific cameras and advanced imaging applications, Hamamatsu introduces the new ORCA-Flash4.0 V3. This one camera expertly handles applications ranging from the acquisition of beautiful scientific images to experiments that demand detection, quantification and speed. With on-board FPGA processing enabling intelligent data reduction, highly refined in-camera, pixel-level calibrations, increased USB3.0 frame rates, purposeful and innovative triggering capabilities, patented lightsheet read out modes and individual camera noise characterization the ORCA-Flash4.0 V3 is the precision instrument for imaging.
