GFP imaging

Hi all

I would be interested in knowing if anyone can recommend a good (and
inexpensive!) binocular fluorescence microscope for studying GFP expression in
plant tissues.
We want to look at Arabidopsis roots on agar plates, at a magnification of up
to around 60-90 times.

A separate question - what kind of digital camera would be suitable for
capturing the images - you can get expensive cooled colour digital cameras
(>?6000) which will certainly do the job, but has anyone found that a much
cheaper 'consumer' kind of digital camera is sufficient. to get reasonable
images.

I'd be very grateful for any feedback.
