The back-bone of this newest MallinCam HD-10 High Definition Live Video Camera is the use of a 2.1 megapixel High Performance, Back Illuminated, High Definition Sony CMOS sensor allowing exposures of 1 millisecond up to 10 seconds, for many popular Deep Sky objects, Planetary views, Lunar views, Solar observation (when used with a proper safe solar filter) with spectacular results when observed on an HDMI monitor (user supplied). It provides 63 levels of gain adjustment making the sensitivity of the sensor up to 300 times higher. You will really impress your audience when displaying astronomical objects and individual features on a large HD monitor in 16:9 format at a resolution of 1080P.
The MallinCam HD-10 High Definition Live Video Camera provides a built-in video and image Recorder with storage to an SD card (supplied) in 1080P. Just click on the button to start recording 1080P video at 30 frames per second. The recorded video files will be saved to the high speed SD card directly built-in the camera. It also allows playback of the recorded video from the SD card directly, allowing a user to show the previous night's observation when cloudy or rainy condition exist at your site.
3D Noise Reduction with up to seven times sampling (averaged stacking) is included. Increase of the exposure time increases the image noise. But the integrated fully adjustable 3D noise reduction function keeps the MallinCam HD-10 image always clean and sharp. The Built-in Mouse control is the significant innovation of the MallinCam HD-10 embedding the application software inside the camera. The user can control the camera with just a mouse. There is no need for a PC. The dual-core processor of the MallinCam HD-10 adopts an innovative FPGA dual-core processor, FPGA1 high-definition image quality processor, and FPGA2 image output controller, to ensure high speed and high quality HD images live to your display.
An Image Comparison Function is available in the setting menu. An image can be chosen to compare with the live image, and even moved around or have a Region of Interest (ROI) selected. A series of image-operation buttons on the right side of the screen allows the image to be flipped, rotated or a Region of Interest (ROI) to be selected. This ROI function can provide more image details through the magnification mode. The MallinCam HD-10 embedded software is designed for ease of use. There are only two icons on the software starting screen, one for image capture and the other for the settings menu. It’s as intuitive to use this camera as your smartphone.
The MallinCam HD-10 High Definition Live Video Camera is packaged in a flat white color, all Aluminum / Stainless Steel fabricated case to avoid over-heating during solar observation and other daytime use.
