Please let me know if this is a repeat of a previous thread...

I am looking into the various techniques to take digital images of type
specimens and would like to speak with anyone else involved with the
issue.  I am in need of specific product info as well as information
regarding the best (or most appropriate) techniques.  Specifically, I
would like to hear from people who have compared the use of a digital
camera with that of a video camera and video capture technique and/or
scanning of 35mm slides.

The main conflict (as usual) is between resolution and affordability and
usefulness of the images to the scientific community.
