Hi. I'm getting interested in microscopy, and considering buying a microscope. I especially like dark field miroscopy. I've been searching around, and trying to figure out what type of camera to hook up to the microscope for certain criteria.

As far as I can tell, a high quality point and shoot, with good low light capabilty, hd recording, a small lens (to fit well ontop of the eyepiece of the scope), that can be remotely controlled with live view from a computer is my best bet.

I want to be able to take videos like this one:

Anyone got any experience with this sort of thing? Any camera suggestions?

Thanks, Scott.

Youll be better off with a dSLR.
The Olympus e-420 is here cheaper than most of the compact cameras, but it is a very small dSLR.
Read (Gordon's) reviews.


Panasonic DMC-FZ18, Panasonic DMC-FZ28, Canon G5, Canon 350D, Canon 50D + BG-E2N
Tamron 17-50 2.8, Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM,
Canon 18-55 II plus lots of Minolta MD/M42 lenses and bodies
