Each image cytometry application deserves its own analysis of camera and digitizing requirements. When it is possible to select a specific camera, camera characteristics should be evaluated in light of the requirements of the planned experiments. In any case, the camera should be well matched to the problem and to the other system components. Although an inadequate camera can forestall success, camera overkill can waste resources that might be better applied elsewhere.

Modern cameras are quite good in performance and reasonable in cost compared to those of the past, and will undoubtedly continue to improve. In addition, some of the image detail lost to camera-induced noise, distortion, and lack of resolution can be recovered with digital image processing.
