Microscope Camera Resolution & Pixels

Microscope camera resolution is an important feature, especially if printing images. Lower pixel images will usually look good on a computer monitor, but when you try to print them out they may appear pixelated. Below you will find some options for a variety of megapixel microscope cameras, along with their ability to print high quality images (300dpi) and the largest print size option. Trying to print an image larger than that listed below will result in sub-optimal image quality.
