I got my set up from Martin Microscope in Greenville SC.  They make adapters
for most microscopes for several cameras.  My scope is an Olympus BX40 and
my camera is a Sony Cybershot 5.0.  This setup has served us well.  Bobby
Martin is a genius with digital camera/microscope setups.  They can make
pretty much whatever adapter you need.  Their web site is
http://www.martinmicroscope.com.  Or you can call them and tell them what
you have and what you want to do with it.  I am sure Bobby would love to fly
to HI to take care of your needs.  The $500 may not take care of all 3 scope

Subject: [Histonet] Digital Camera Setup for Student Microscopes

Hello- I am looking for an economical digital microscope setup for our
student compound scopes (anatomy and physiology).  In lieu of getting an
expensive microscope-only camera, I would like to pair a decent consumer
camera with a suitable microscope mount (this way students can photograph
histological sections and lab activities with the same camera).  I would
like to buy 3-4 setups, and stay under or around $500 each.  Any ideas?
