I am in the market for a new digital camera.
I use digital imaging to take a series of microscopic pictures on each
case that comes through our department.
These images are then put on our image archive for the research community.
I have demoed the following cameras:
The Leica DC 480 (5.1 megapixel)
The Olympus DP70 (12.5 megapixel)
The Zeiss AxioCam HR (1.3 Megapixel)
Could people give me an idea of their experience using these cameras,
the pros and cons, easy of use, etc. (Leica vs Olympus vs Zeiss)?
The megapixel capacity seems not as important an issue to me, as
comparing the overall function of each company's line of cameras, since
I feel that I can pretty much extrapolate from one resolution
capability to another within each company's line-up. The software seems
to be about the same within each company's group of cameras.
Thanks for any opinions or advice you can give me.
