Nice Pictures

Hi,

I have a question (if you don't mind). Your pictures are really good and I was wondering what sort of lens/camera do you use? I have just started using a DSLR and would like to get this quality of picture. My problem at the moment is that about 60% are out of focus!

Thanks,

Bruce

Hi Bruce, I use a Nikon

Hi Bruce,

I use a Nikon SMZ800 microscope with a GXCAM-3 camera attached. My other (portable) camera is a Nikon D7000 with a 105mm macro lens. Very expensive, but you get what you pay for...

Money well spent though. I'll just have to settle for my slightly fuzzy lower mag pics.
