Futudent introduced two new cameras on March 29: a lightweight loupe-mounted high-definition POV camera and the world's first miniature 4K dental camera, the MicroCam and the ProCam.
The new MicroCam is a lightweight camera, weighing in at 18 grams, designed for easy loupe-mounted POV filming. It delivers high-definition (1080p30) images from its professional Sony IMX sensor. The new ProCam is the world’s first miniature 4K (3840x2160@30 fps/13Mpix stills) dental camera and can be mounted on loupes or a chair light. It captures stunning video and high-quality photography without interrupting the procedure, keeping the doctor's focus on the patient. These two new products join the EduCam in Futudent's portfolio of dental video technology.
“We are very proud to once again be changing the game and innovating new and powerful ways to help dentists communicate and document better than ever before," said Futudent founder Lars Kåhre. "Globally, videos are becoming more and more popular for educating patients, communicating with treatment teams, and as a superior tool for documentation. Futudent is dedicated to improving the dental experience for doctors and patients alike, and the ProCam and MicroCam fit seamlessly into everyday dental workflow in all practices.”

Video is already an integral part of dental education today. Educators and learners use video to demonstrate techniques, evaluate, document, and present in universities, continuing education courses, and private training. Futudent supports these applications and extends the same benefits to private practice. Video helps dentists visually document and explain cases and treatment to patients and colleagues more easily than a mirror and a still camera. Patients who understand treatment plans are much more likely to agree to treatment. Video is the easiest way to review treatments with patients and even send advice straight to their smartphones.
All Futudent’s cameras are designed to be used on either loupes, chair lights, or a flexible arm, with each having different advantages depending on the application. At 18 grams, the MicroCam is optimized for all-day loupe mounting. The 26-gram ProCam can also be worn on the loupes, but its high 4K resolution means that digital zooming can be used to capture clear, unpixelated close-up video and photographs from the chair light. The EduCam offers a good compromise between price and performance.
