Led by Dr. Lou Shuman, President of the Pride Institute, the “Best of Class” Technology Awards represent an initiative to inspire new and existing technology companies to improve on an annual basis and to educate those in the dental profession to use technology effectively.
“We’re honored to accept an award that reflects Shofu’s philosophy of taking dentistry to the next level by delivering smart product solutions,” said Randy Bailey, President and CEO at Shofu, The EyeSpecial C-ll is a truly exciting innovation, a game changer for the entire dental office.”
Introduced by Shofu during the 2014 Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting, the EyeSpecial C-ll is a smart digital camera intended for clinical photography, dental/orthodontic case documentation, and at the bench in a laboratory. Equipped with a 12 megapixel sensor, a high-performance 49-mm close-up lens, and a panoramic LCD touch screen that allows the user to view and scroll through images with or without gloves, the EyeSpecial C-ll offers eight pre-set shooting modes along with intuitive one-touch operations.
This intelligent camera captures high-quality images with ease and convenience. It has an exceptional depth-of-field range, fast autofocus and anti-shake capabilities that ensure true-color reproduction and superb imagery. Like the smart phones and tablets, the EyeSpecial C-ll is high intuitive and user friendly. The camera employs a spot-focus function, activated with a tap of a finger on the screen, and cropping grid lines both of which make excellence in dental photography easy to achieve. No extensive technical knowledge is required to work with the EyeSpecial C-ll, an attribute that brings consistency and efficacy to treatment planning, and allows the clinician to delegate clinical photography tasks to staff members.
The camera also possesses a draw/edit feature that makes sharing information, office-lab collaboration, and patient communication more streamlined. The user may draw on and edit images when discussing with the lab the perfect restoration, or selecting treatment options for patients, or tracking the progress between treatments, increasing overall satisfaction and case acceptance.
Designed for comfort and functionality, the EyeSpecial C-ll is convenient to hold using one hand. With an ultralight, durable body engineered to withstand rigorous infection control protocols, Shofu’s superior and simplified EyeSpecial C-ll will contribute to accuracy and consistency when capturing images for case planning and documentation in today’s dental practice or laboratory.
