Fwd: Digital photography for IF

From:"Dr. Ian Montgomery"

        I use a sledge hammer for a wee small nut, a Zeiss Pascal confocal. Well, the software lets me do all sorts of fancy things. If you don't have a confocal I can highly recommend the Zeiss Axiocam. You could of course buy a digital camera and separate software but remember, don't be fooled by stories of megapixels, ask the manufacturer about pixel size, this is critical. If they don't know, ask what chip is in the camera then look at the manufacturers website. Like Kylie Minogue, small is lovely.

Is anyone using digital photography for immunofluorescence performed on
tissue sections?  If so, what type of system are using and how expensive
is the equipment?  Thanks!
