can I use my camcorder to get a good view of Trich's

Thread starter #1
Hi everyone, I was just curious if anyone has gotten any good photos of trichomes good for detecting when to harvest, using a camcorder. I know about the 13dollar microscopes with zoom lenses, I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with a camcorder for checking them out? I have a nice sony with 60gig hd etc, I never used it much but would like to know if it will work for determining harvest? I think I said that already, thats alright tho, ttyl all replies welcome thanks....
If there is a significant macro on it - you could definitely get some pics. The only problem I find in trying to use my pics (even 7MP stills) is the White Balance. I'm never quite sure what I see in the pics is correct. I do, however, find it very helpful in addition to the scope. Once I've gauged the colors with my eye - the pic is a really handy way to really check the plant and tris.

It says it has 2000x digital zoom, 25x optical, and tele macro..I haven't quite figured out how to do it tho....so should I set it to macro stills, 0.7? Thanks Papa Green!!
