so I started with the carson eflex was a great scoop but I found it to little of pixels so I wanted more lol.
I bougt a 12mp and it turned out to be crap res was only 720 so sent it back ,but after research found the cats meow for 50 bucks https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B...e=UTF8&psc=1
it a Mustcam uvc microscope wit true 5mp resolution which is very nice because normal apps pick it up right away.

Pros:
low price
adjustable mp 1.3@(1280x1024) to 5mp@(2592x1944)
easy focus

cons:
no light diffuser very bright lights but can be turned down
Stand is decent but can angle it
have to make your own diffuser lol.

picture differnce:

Carson Eflex



Mustcam @2.1mp



Mustcam @5mp with quick diffuser



i hope this can help some, just got it last night so havnt ad to much time to play with it.

00 And forgot close up @ 5mp

Sometimes covering the light with a piece of tissue paper makes a pretty good diffuser.

Eyes, great find with reasonable price. I was thinking that you adjust the light and color with a photoshop app. However , what type of camera did you use? I am trying like crazy to set this cyber shot so I can take photos. I can the. Plug the USB into my computer and use the photoshop program I have downloaded....
