The CX-1 Hybrid Digital Mydriatic/Non-Mydriatic (MYD/NM) Retinal Camera is Canon’s first hybrid camera and a non-mydriatic camera to use Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) photography


Five Photography Modes

The CX-1 offers five photography modes including Color, Red-Free, Cobalt, Fluorescein Angiography (FA), and Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF).

Canon EOS Camera Technology

High quality diagnostic images are obtained using a dedicated EOS camera for retinal imaging which incorporates a large, high-definition CMOS sensor.

Non-Mydriatic Fundus Autofluorescence (FAF) Photography

With the push of the Myd/Non-Myd button to select the non-mydriatic mode and the FAF mode, the operator is ready to begin taking images. The FAF mode helps monitor macular waste such as lipofuscin, which assists the eye care professional with detecting age-macular degeneration (AMD), glaucoma, and diabetes.

One Touch Selection of MYD/NM

A single push of the Myd/Non-Myd button switches between the mydriatic and non-mydriatic imaging modes.

Control Panel

Whether the CX-1 is in mydriatic or non-mydriatic mode, the control panel has simple operation, workflow efficiency, and ergonomic controls.

Superior Image Quality

Clear, high resolution images are available in either mydriatic or non-mydriatic mode. The 2x mode magnifies the image by automatically cropping out the peripheral edges so the region of interest is larger in the frame.

Stereo Photography System

The LCD monitor displays guides which automatically determine the base length for acquiring successful stereo images. The two images can be stored as a pair making it easier to manage the files.

EOS Camera Technology

Made exclusively for the CX-1, the detachable camera features Canon’s EOS camera technology with its renowned image processing capabilities providing optimal retinal imaging. The camera handles five different photography modes including non-mydriatic FAF photography, Color, Red-free, Fluorescein Angiography, and Cobalt.

Retinal Imaging Control Software

Using the Canon Retinal Imaging Control Software (RICS), images can be viewed, manipulated, sent to a DICOM storage device or stored as DICOM or JPEG images and sent to a printer. For more information, visit the Retinal Imaging Control Software webpage.
