Dedicated EOS Camera Technology High quality diagnostic images are obtained using a dedicated camera for the CR-2 PLUS AF which incorporates a large, high-definition CMOS sensor with 18 megapixels. The LCD may be adjusted to a variety of titled angles to suit the user's point of view, an auxilliary monitor may be added.
Non-Mydriatic Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) Photography Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) helps monitor macular waste (e.g. lipofuscin) which can accumulate in the Retinal Pigment Epithelial (RPE) layer. The accumulation of macular waste can cause conditions such as Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) which can lead to reduced vision. The FAF mode may be selected by pressing only one button.
Auto-Focus Automatically focuses the eye when the joystick is partially pressed.
Auto-Fundus Allows automatic switching from the external eye to retinal obeservation mode.
Auto-Capture Automatically captures the image when the eye is properly focused.
Automatic Exposure Function The CR-2 PLUS AF measures the volume of infrared light from the retina and automatically adjusts the flash intensity for observation and photography. This feature may be set to ON/OFF and can be adjusted using the operation panel.
Low Flash Intensity and ISO Sensitivity The low flash intensity of the CR-2 PLUS AF minimizes miosis, thus shortening the time required for taking multiple view exams or stereo images. The reduced brightness improves patient comfort and reduces the "ghost" image the patient sees after an exposure. A wide range of low ISO speeds are supported including ISO 200, 400, 800, 1600, 3200 and 6400.
Digital Filter Processing Red-Free and Cobalt digital filters are included and provide enhanced screening exams. Red-Free is used for evaluating the Retinal Nerve Fiber Layer (RNFL) and vascular structure of the retina associated with documenting Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy or Hypertension. The Cobalt filter is also used for evaluating the RNFL, as well as Optic Disc and Optic Disc Drusen. Additionally, Green (Vascular view) and Red channel (Choroid view) digital filter views are also included.
Retinal Imaging Control Software Using the Canon Retinal Imaging Control Software (RICS), images can be captured, viewed, processed, printed and saved to a permanent storage database. The Canon RICS complies with the DICOM®* Standard. Images may be stored as DICOM or JPEG files. For more information, visit Retinal Imaging Control Software.

Control Panel The simplified design of the control panel can be easily handled by an examiner. Manual alignment override allows easy switching to manual focusing on demand. The one-handed joystick may be used to position the camera to acquire the desired image. In darkly lit rooms, the operation panel illuminates for easier navigation.
Compact and Lightweight The small design of the CR-2 PLUS AF facilitates portability when needed using an optional hard shell transport case sold separately. Canon instrument tables (sold separately) may comfortably fit both the camera and computer workstation (sold separately). The space saving design also allows for use in limited office space environments.
