I have a Amscope Stereo microsope coming in the mail, Model SM-4T.  I would like to get a decent camera for it.  I have looked and read evrything I can find onliine, but having never used one before, I still am at a loss of which one to get.  I want to keep the price below $200 US. 
There are so many choices out there, but it seems all they provide is specs and I have no feel as to what would fit my desires.  I would like to  be able to record at a good resolution and 30fps, and still have reasonable resolution still imaging.

Anyone with cameras that can give me some pointers?
At least I'm still older than my test equipment

Louis Rossmann has a few videos on these cameras. He compares several models, including some cheap Chinese ones. Check out his Youtube channel.

Thanks for the links.  I have finally finished them and viewed a lot of other ones.   Unfortunately, they still leave a lot of questions unanswered.

You can contact him directly - either by Youtube or through his website:

I believe he has also an account here, so try PMing him.
