The PhotoMed / Fuji S9000 clinical camera system is a hybrid or "bridge" camera between the smaller point-and-shoot cameras and the larger SLR cameras (like the Canon 30D). The S9000 allows you to use the built-in LCD screen as a viewfinder (like the Canon A620) or switch to the elctronic viewfinder and place your eye to the viewfinder (like the Canon 30D).

The S9000 features a 10.7x optical zoom lens. When combined with PhotoMed's custom macro lens, this camera can focus on a field only 5/8" wide. The other nice thing about the S9000 lens is the manual zoom control. This allows you to preset the lens at any position and shoot the same size field over and over (just like an SLR camera).
