The Macropod Pro 3D is a rigid, portable photomacrography system, which allows the user to make razor sharp, fully focused photographs of small sized specimens at 18 to 26-megapixel resolution and 3D STL files using photogrammetry software. It overcomes the extreme Depth of Field (DOF) limitations inherent in optics and is designed to image smaller specimens. Normally, lenses designed for macro will only render a very small fraction of the depth of targeted specimen in sharp focus at any one exposure. The Macropod allows the user to select and make multiple exposures in precise increments along the Z-axis (depth) such that each exposure’s area of sharp focus overlaps with the previous and next exposure. These source images are then transferred to a computer and merged by an image-stacking program. The stacking program finds and stitches together only the focused pixels from each exposure into one image. The Macropod integrates industry-leading components in a novel and elegant way to achieve these results.

3D Modeling of Field Locations and Samples
The Macropod Pro includes an AgiSoft PhotoScan stand-alone software license that performs photogrammetric processing of digital images and generates 3D spatial data. This is to be used in GIS applications, scientific documentation, and visual effects production as well as for indirect measurements of objects of various scales.
Throughout various case studies the Macropod Pro and PhotoScan proves to produce quality and accurate results in a smart automated system that, on the one hand, can be managed by a new-comer in the field of photogrammetry, yet, on the other hand, has a lot to offer to a specialist who can adjust the workflow to numerous specific tasks and different types of data.
Capture images from different view points of any sample, field site, landscape, etc.
Generate 3D models, point clouds, DSMs from digital photos of any sample and field location.

The Excitation Filters will convert the Macropod into a system that is capable of capturing fluorescence. They will work with any camera utilizing the MT-24 EX Dual twin lite flash by Canon. It is recommended that the Macropod be used for magnifications greater than 5x due to the reduced levels of light being emitted.
