RE: gross photography setups

From:"Morken, Tim" <>

Hazel, I recommend you look at the Photodyne product (web site and other
below). I have used the system (though not at present) and it is by far the
best gross photo system you can buy. It is design specifically for pathology
and is very easy to use. It can accomadate digital, film and video, all in
the same package. The table is large and the focusing system is extremely
easy (it uses an image projected on the specimen to focus). It is expensive,
but well worth it to get the best images.

Besides Photodyne, several manufacurers of gross hoods have attachments to
mount cameras right on the hood, over the gross bench. Though that is not a
good setup for perfect pictures, it is fast and may meet your needs.
