Camera recommendation for Vision Engineering Lynx?

We have a Vision Engineering Lynx microscope setup at work. We purchased the integrated USB microscope but it was poor resolution and eventually failed. We plan to purchase the slr camera adapter with right-angle prism. So question is: which camera should we purchase to go with it? I'm a Nikon guy b...

I had a short email conversation with the folks that developed the BlueSLR remote camera control. They have a development platform for bluetooth that should cut down development but... you must join the made for iphone development program first and that takes time and effort. And probably they'd cho...

When I first saw the Apple tv being demo'd at the Apple store this is what it was doing. So I changed the settings and searched for photomacrography photos and it then just fed them to me one after another on their big 50" display tv. Pretty cool. I work at WDC and we have a WDTV series of My TV pro...

Questions about snowflakes: Looking at these images have me wondering - are all snowflakes rather two dimensional? Why would they be - I mean it makes for a better design to survive the fall to earth but like it doesn't care - its not alive. Are there other 3D snowflakes that fall so fast they self-...

The Gigapan guys were at the San Mateo MakerFaire this May. I talked with a guy there a bit. He was unaware of our forum.
Another guy there had a cheap, rc servo based slide manipulator to map DNA samples... I think I have a couple short video clips.

ebay buy

along these lines, I just bought this setup:
ebay 250652933714
I know nothing about it and unfortunately do not have a trinocular head yet.
Will this be useful for digital photography or is it strictly for film (I know film cameras are included in the buy).

Cool! Glad I asked. I already had one of these and recently got another and didn't know I had the first (=stupid me). The first one I bought for something close to $75 and the second was $20 plus $10 shipping. From the same seller it turns out. I still haven't tried them. I was a little worried when...
