Photos with digital camera vs built-in camera

Postby KlondikeGeoff on Fri Jun 22, 2007 6:08 pm

I've got an Accu-scope with a built-in 1.3 megapixel digital camera. It takes good pics at all magnifications.

However, I'm hoping to get sharper images, and wonder if I get an adapter and use my Canon PowerShot A610, which is 5 megapixels, whether it would really improve the shots.

I rarely print the images, just view them on my 19" LCD monitor. Is it worth the trouble and expense of getting an adapter?

Would using the separate camera give me more latitude in stopping down to get better depth of field that do with the condenser iris diaphragm?

Not familiar with that microscope, so no way I can't offer much in the way of comments, but if your current camera is offering only 1.3MP, going to nearly any good digital point and shoot like your Canon will be an improvement in terms of resolution.
