- Peca has hoods and camera mounts.
- Fotodyne has a pretty sweet all in one system.
- The Photo-Doc-It system is pretty similar to the Fotodyne Apprentice system.
- AlphaDigiDoc Pro
- BioDocAnalyze Digital
I will also check out the VWR and Fisher Catalogs
Here is a DIY system: DIY Gel Documentation
Seeing that DIY setup makes me want to make one. Maybe I will. The big issue will be to get some kind of enclosure. I like a conical hood, but a big box or a blackout cloth could suffice. What say others?
Steve Koch 22:45, 23 June 2009 (EDT)Things you found above and emailed to me seem pretty promising. The hood from (peca I think) seemed really cheap, and the guy really helpful, so it didn't really seem worth making the hood. Picking the perfect camera is more challenging. I was intrigued by the wireless camera you found with remote control access--but hard to know whether it's convenient to use or not. If you find a good wireless uploading camera, I'd probably want two, so we can use one for general lab experiment documentation w/o having to worry about uploading. Good work finding all this stuff.
