I already bought a microscope with a ccd camera (no digital output,
only video signal), so far the image is displayed on a screen.
I want to acquire the images by a python  software, which is running
the experiment.
For this reason I need a framegrabber, but I want to buy one that I
can easyly integrate, i.e. call from python.
