Dear Gabrielle,

Hi!  Professional video cameras for microscopes are expensive (thousands 
of dollars).  However, I have seen some of my students actually take 
serviceable still pictures of cells simply by focusing their cell phone 
cameras through the ocular lens of a microscope.  Have you tried this?  
You may actually have some luck also by using a camcorder.  If these do 
not work, I could only suggest trying to Google used cameras for 
microscopes and see what you could come up with.
