Development of Clincam
Clincam was originally developed as an alternative to dSLR's for use by new graduates and practitioners new to dental photography.
A solution was required that was simple, quick to use, easy to integrate in daily practice and one that would comply with strict infection control measures.
Although dSLR's are the gold standard in photography, they come with a steep learning curve, high cost and can be time consuming to use. These are often the reasons dentists cite for not integrating photography into daily practice.
Clincam was developed by taking the stock waterproof Olympus TG-6 camera and applying custom modifications to the settings and firmware to enable it to be used in the dental setting Clincam has been extensively tested and used in practice over the past 4 years by dental practitioners across the East Coast of Australia with great clinical results.
Originally intended for internal use and not for sale to the wider dental community, due to demand, it was eventually released for sale in 2020 and has been shipped to dentists world wide.
I want to help as many dental practitioners as possible to access a simple, cost effective and easy to use camera which will ultimately help to improve communication, standards, case presentation, acceptance and outcomes for all patients.
