inverted microscope - (Apr/13/2011 )


I am planning to buy an inverted microscope with a camera as a separate attachment. Wanted to know which camera (how many mega-pixels)would be good to buy? I normally would take pictures with a 20x or 40x objective. Thus, which of these, a 5MP or a 9MP camera, would help me obtain good, clean and distinct pictures using either the 20x or 40x objective?

Thanks for your response/s...


Either should be fine, though the higher resolution might be more useful in the future if you want to compare photos.
