Everybody interested in buying a digital camera should check out the reviews
at the Digital Camera Resource Page:

Personally , I can recommend theNikon Coolpix 950. We use it at the
Botanical Institute, University of Copenhagen. You can take macro shots 1:1
without extra lenses, but then you are very close to the object being
photographed, and i t may be difficult to use a flash - we need a
macro-flash for the coolpix! It does use an incredible amount of batteries,
I guess it is the monitor that is the problem. The new coolpix 850 is said
be less voracious.

stereoscopes and microscopes with no trouble at
all and you get more-or-less real-time images on the viewer. The swivel back
make it very easy to use on microscopes and camera stands. <endsnip>

Where did you get the adapters? I would like to have an adaptor for  Leitz
(Leica) stereomicroscopes and Photomacroscopes.
