The IrisExplorer v5 is our most advanced iris Lighting System.
The main new feature is a Soft Flash. A comfortable low light to allow the camera to focus and when ready a flash is triggered to take a high-quality photo. It is very comfortable for clients and a noticeable increase in image quality.
Taking a Photo
Iris lighting device (IrisExplorer v5)
Macro extension tube
NB: Camera & Lens are not included with the IrisExplorer v5 (Some cameras will also need a camera lens adaptor or a flash hot shoe adaptor). We offer a complete iriscope package called the Iriscope I60 v5
We're testing different camera options that will work with the IrisExplorer v5. Our favourite at the moment is the Canon M50 camera + Canon 60mm lens. It will also work with different Canon cameras: 2000D, 800D... Some clients are getting some good results with a Sony macro lens and also a Sigma macro lens (thus enabling many different camera brands (Sony, Nikon & Sigma). We're exploring these options and will keep you informed as soon as possible.
NB: The Canon 4000D, 2000D and 250D will need a camera hot shoe adaptor. Please contact us if you need details.
Payment option in euros: Version 5 (about 730€ depending on the exchange rate). Make sure to click on "euros payment" option when you're placing your order.

Canon is synonymous with high-quality photos and the IE lighting is specifically designed to be compatible with their lens and bodies. The 60mm Macro lens is perfect for the task. Mounted on any Canon DSLR, the IE lighting will enable sharp photos that are true to the real colours of the iris.
Pulse-Modulated Intensity control 'PMC 5 Technology'* Gives soft, yet strong light with Dimming option for sensitive patients
PMC-5 Technology = Pulse Microchip Control 5th Generation (Details)
Pulse-Modulated Intensity = Light is pulsed at high frequency, invisible for our eyes, this reduces the feeling of brightness but the camera still gets 100% light intensity. Electronically controlling the length of the pulses, creates a dimming effect that has no effect on the colour of the light and low impact on camera sensitivity.

Any computer that enables you to view digital photos is enough. It doesn't make a difference if you're using Windows, Mac or Linux. If the computer is very old (or very slow) it might not be practical for use in a clinic, so as long as the computer works well for most other uses it will work for this purpose also.
However, we do recommend a screen size of at least 13" as this makes viewing photos easier (15" or more is better), the higher the resolution of the screen the better.
Mac: The standard “Preview” software is great... so just transfer the photos from the camera to a folder on your computer and double click the image. (More advanced software, like Photos is great for more advanced features).
Windows: Same as above, the standard software is great... so just transfer the photos from the camera to a folder on your computer and double click the image. (Note: there are many advanced and intermediate software options on windows)
IEv5 : Standard 9v square battery (easy to change & 100% safe)
At full power the LEDs in the IrisExplorer are designed to last 100 000 hours. In this application, they don't run at full power so can be expected to last a fair bit longer. There is an automatic light-off feature after 10mins in case you forget to switch off the lights, so in the worst-case scenario where you never switch it off manually you should be able to use it on more than 600 000 patients...
