I would greatly appreciate any suggestions about what might be
considered 'state of the art' for computer based imaging systems that
can be linked to microscopes, macro lenses etc with a freeze frame
camera, digital capacity including scaling, measurements etc., and
produce publication quality pictures. I would need to limit myself for
what is available in the US.


Some years ago I used a system known as Paxit which along with a Sony
movie camera, microscope attachments and computer, cost about $25,000.
If there are other widely used systems that could be brought to my
attention, or any comment on Paxit in that regard in terms of utility,
quality, scope, and cost, I would be very interested in feedback. As I
am looking to get something for our institution I am starting afresh so
far as knowledge about what is out there and who may supply it.
