Notes:

Note 1: Based on a compact mirrorless DSLR camera with 24 Mega pixels resolution. This DSLR is very lightweight and compact in size making it ideal to travel with in forest or fields. Despite this, it produces images of quality that equals or surpasses those of conventional DSLR systems (mirror based).

 

WinSCANOPY Software  

The WinSCANOPY software can be purchased separately. The features of each version is given in WinSCANOPY Program features.

Price  

Our sales department (sales@regentinstruments.com) can give you a quote for the systems, software and accessories described on this page (see Important Notes below). Our digital cameras come with more accessories than those provided by their manufacturer. As an example, on some system, we include a second battery and a high capacity memory card to store a reasonable amount of images. They also come with a calibration, additional operating instructions and technical support.

Software Alone or Complete System?  
When WinSCANOPY is ordered as a complete system, you get a calibration file that indicates WinSCANOPY which camera and lens is in use (but you can change it) and where in the image is the hemisphere with a 180 degrees field of view for your camera and lens pair. The lens sees more than 180 degrees, so it is important to find the hemisphere radius which corresponds to the 180 degrees. Also the position of the hemisphere in the image changes between different cameras of the same make and model. You also get a lens calibration which allows to compensate for non-linearities in the projection in the image in function of the zenith angle. To analyse images in these conditions you do not need to enter camera parameters (this is all done for you in the calibration file), you simply click the image. For more information about camera and lens calibration click here.
Important Notes  
  1. We can quote in US, Euro and Canadian dollars depending on where you are located.
  2. When WinSCANOPY is ordered with another software produced by Regent Instruments (WinDENDRO, WinRHIZO, ...), a 10% discount is offered on the less expensive software.
  3. You can buy a version and upgrade it to a higher end version later (Ex: Reg to Pro...) simply by paying the difference in cost between them.
  4. You get a rebate on the purchase of a second licence, when purchased by the same person.
  5. Quotes are not valid for resale, please consult our policies regarding distribution.
  6. We do not sell digital cameras, O-Mounts, NorthFinder, Remote control and fish-eye lenses without the WinSCANOPY software.
  7. We do not disclose the brand and models used in our systems. The development of these systems has been made possible by testing and comparing many components. Because of the costs involved in designing them, we cannot disclose information about the components we have selected or made. We cannot also recommend brands and models like a local camera dealer. Regent Instruments do not sell brands and models, we sell expertise and solutions with known technical specifications to accomplish specific tasks (like canopy or radiation analysis). Our knowledge of the models we sell allows us to answer with competence the questions asked by the users.
