Re: Microscope camera

cont: Resolution v frame per second This is especially important if you use live view a lot. 1.3Mp (1280 x 1024) @ 11 frames per second (fps) is the minimum you can get away with for sufficient detail using a x400 lens for typical fungi id, and acceptable lag between focussing and image on the scree...
