I had no experience with cameras or lenses, so I bought different angle sensors (65°, 20°, 130° and 150°).
Not x20, but 20° lens. With v1 camera 65° lens achieved 1.7μm/pixel, whereas with 20° lens it achieved 1μm/pixel.You are using the x20 for "larger" image of specific areas like in the first image?
It is good to have one v2 camera, as it can eg. take VGA videos at 180fps with full GPU support, and it has 8MP compared to 5MP for v1 camera.
If the only thing you're doing is running a camera/microscope then the ZeroW will be more than adequate. Folks have been using original 1Bs (same chip, same amount of RAM (later models)) for that task since the 5MP camera was launched.
I've downloaded http://wsr.imagej.net/distros/cross-platform/ij150.zip and unzipped it.
Sorry my mistake, I thought it was research into being able to make it as cheap as possible. Not to do it as cheap as possible from the start.
I was exactly thinking about that, I'll try to order it soon. If I don't need wifi or bluetooth, do I need a Pi Zero W, or can I order a v1.3? Do you think I need the night vision option?
You're also quite right, my goal is to propose a cheap alternative to regular microscope equipment, but for credibility purposes in my lab I cannot afford to try everything. I'll try with the cheapest solution and then buy more expensive stuff if needed. At least, I have a "personal" RPI3 I can use for test.bensimmo wrote: ↑Mon Apr 16, 2018 1:06 pmSorry my mistake, I thought it was research into being able to make it as cheap as possible.

(Though the Pi3 is so much easier to actually develop on than the much slower Zero. Only then cut back functions for the Zero as need be for speed and memory).
