New CCD Camera for JEOL JEM-3010

The old two camera system on the JEOL JEM-3010, which was installed with the microscope in 1998, was replaced from 12th-15th March 2013. The new camera, a Model 830 Orius SC200, has a 2k x 2k CCD array giving better quality images than possible using the old Model 692 slow scan camera (1k x 1k). The 830 also is capable of operating at TV rate (512 x 512 image) which allows movies of dynamic events to be made using Windows Movie Maker. Unlike the Model 692 the new camera does not have any blanking or a shutter. Any time the camera is in, and the viewing screen up, electrons are hitting the camera. To minimize any damage lower the viewing screen when not collecting images or diffraction patterns.
