Jerry : and to think a few short months ago you were asking questions about scopes and cameras.......now
WOW you have taken beautiful photography, clear and bright, and sharp.
If I can make 1 suggestion......try to order an inexpensive set of orthodontic mirrors ( phone your local
ortho guy and ask him where he gets his mirrors)
If you really want to freak him out ......after he tells you where he gets the mirrors ask him if he gets
his brackets and arch wires thinga me jingies there too!!
The suggestion for the ortho mirrors comes from the ability especially in the upper arch to get photos
without the distraction of the sides of the mirrors in place.
In closing I want to emphasize that your photography and use of the microscope are to be applauded as you
have skyrocketed along since I have started on roots.........

I agree with Glenn, those are great photos! Please tell us what scope / camera / light-source you are
(If I remember right, you were trying out both the Leica and the Global scope...)
And Glenn, keep your photos coming too! They're always great. I'll try to post a few of my own in a
couple of days.

For those, I used the Global scope with the metal halide light and a Coopix 950.
Yesterday, the Zeiss rep came by with a Pico and I was able to rig up the Leica Xenon light source to it
and I really like the images I'm getting. (i'll post some later) The Zeiss halogen light is horrible for
I'm still waiting from the Leica guys to send me a Nikon digital camera adapter for the Leica scope, all
I have on that one is video (and it's not as good as the Coolpix)
What Gary says is very true, Video is just marginal compared to digital cameras. That said, the Global
video isnt bad. The Leica is fair and the Zeiss video capture is horrible.
The Xenon light is very nice, I wish I could somehow attach it to the Global scope.
