Tools of a scientist

What is a scientist without his/her microscope? Microscopes have come a long way. Gone are the times when a scientist had to look through the eyepiece and use sophisticated devices to take photos of the specimen. Today, filming the specimen is as easy as plugging the microscope to a computer via USB cable for instance, and record a whole video sequence or take snapshots at high resolution. Easy as pie, comfortable, and really effective.
