New Canon CX-1 Camera Combines Mydriatic and Non-Mydriatic Functions in Same Unit

March 24, 2010

Canon Europe has a new dual mode camera, the CX-1.  It offers the ability to combine both mydriatic and non-mydriatic functions in the same unit.  The camera can switch between the two modes by a single switch.

What caught my attention was the ability to perform 5 different functions with the same unit.  The camera sports non-mydriatic FAF (fundus auto-fluorescence), Color, red-free, cobalt and fluorescein angiography abilities.

While I have yet to see this in action, the versatility of a single unit to examine retinal disease and glaucoma certainly is intriguing.

Wondering if anyone has been impressed with this?
