DC-4 Digital Camera and BG-5 Background Illuminator

With the addition of the optional DC-4 Digital Camera Attachment and the BG-5 LED Background Illuminator*, the SL-D701 becomes a fully featured Digital Photographic Slit Lamp. The DC-4 can be used with the EZ Capture and the IMAGEnet® 5 Digital Imaging Systems for clear and sharp imaging of the anterior segment of the eye. The BG-5 LED Background Illuminator provides the additional convenience of allowing the documentation of the Meibomian glands. 

*Because of the advanced technology of its electronics, the BG-5 background illuminator can only be used with the SL-D701 and cannot be attached to older generation slit lamps.

  • High Resolution – Multi-function camera and Topcon’s proprietary software for optimized color balance and monochrome imaging when used with the BG-5 Illuminator.

  • Meibography Capability — When used with the BG-5 or the BG-4M Background Illuminators, the DC-4 can perform meibography imaging and video clips.

  • Smart Capture Function—With a single push, the operator can obtain a rapid series of 5 images that are quickly saved for later revision and selection.

  • Still Image with Auto Exposure—Automatically compensates brightness. Live alignment image and final picture have the same color balance.

  • Live View—When using the EZ Capture® software in conjunction with the DC-4, a real time live image will be seen on the monitor to facilitate centering and focusing.

  • Video Capability—The DC-4 allows for easy acquisition of video clips of the eye movements without interfering with the examination.

Smart Capture Function


With a simple push of the joystick trigger, the operator can obtain a rapid series of images that are quickly saved for later revision and selection. The Smart Capture function minimizes failed images or blurry pictures, especially in children and non-cooperative patients. 

Live View


When using the EZ CaptureTM  software in conjunction with  the DC-4, a real time live image will be seen on the monitor to facilitate centering and focusing. The live image can be used to show the eye condition to third party individuals for teaching and education. Sensitivity, shutter speed and white balance can  be adjusted from the computer. 

Still Image with Auto Exposure (AE) function


By adjusting the shutter speed and sensor gain, the brightness of the image will be automatically compensated. As a result, the live image used for alignment and the final picture will have the same color balance.
