We use a Nikon Coolpix 950 with excellent results.  The 2.1 megapixels are
more than sufficient.  The camera has enough features to cover most anything
and is easy to use.  The rotating lens is quite handy.  This camera uses a
compact flash card.  You'll want to include a card reader in your purchase.
Downloading through a serial cable is agonizingly slow and if the camera you
purchase uses a smart media card, the required adapter seems slower than a
standard floppy.  

As far as saving them.... I zip all pics to a file with the specimen # as
the file name (i.e. and store them on our intranet server
because it has plenty of room and gets backed up nightly.  If you do not
have that luxury, I would suggest archival on writable CD.

We also use it to take photos of xrays for inclusion in Tumor Board
presentations.  You have to use B&W mode or convert the pics after you have
them on the computer.
