Hi.I am a dermatologist working in Calcutta,India.I want to buy a digital camera to photograph my patients' skin lesions e.g. acne,moles,birthmarks etc.I would be shooting indoors & wouldn't require prints.Would a 3 megapixel camera like the Canon F70 or Nikon 3100 be OK?

I take it you will view the images only on a computer screen. A 3Mp camera will more than fill a computer, and you won't get more resolution with more Mp unless you want to blow up sections.

The Nikon will give better closups and might be the better choice. The Nikon will fill the screen with a 1.5 X 2 inch area where the A70 will get close enough to capture only 2.25 X 3 inches. They both tend to overexpose on extreme closups with the flash, but you should be able to adjust the EV.
