We have been considering purchase of a digital camera (of Canon) but 
were informed that sensitivity for recording ethidium bromide stained 
gels was too low. Digital camera's could indeed be very convenient to 
replace Polaroid camera's: less waste, less loss of resolution, 
immediate digitalisation (i.e. no need for scanning the gels), cheaper.
Video camera's still are expensive.

If someone knows about useful digital camera devices, let us know.
