-This mostly focuses on USB cameras. ​ AmScope seems to lead the consumer market (say $50-$800 or so) using various sensors under the hood.  ATIK (astronomy focused) and Apogee seem to both be popular at the next price bucket ($1000-$4000 or so).  Of course, once you get to this range people typically know what they want and applications can be specialized.

-====== Sensors ===== 
- 
-This is about the core sensor used in a variety of cameras. ​ Note that specific camera implementations can have a dramatic difference in image quality and thus two cameras using the same sensor aren't necessarily interchangable 
- 
-===== Aptina =====

-Reference: http://​www.aptina.com/​products/​image_sensors/​

-I'm just going to assume that anything with MT is Micron before the subdivision and AR is Aptina (where did the R come from?)

- 
-These are a good option if you want something decent at a reasonable price. ​ Don't believe they make any of their own cameras though. ​ By pulling from multiple vendors they are able to offer a wide selection from 0.3MP inexpensive eyepiece cameras to pricy, but presumably good quality, cooled CCD cameras.

-Left: camera left showing AR coating with 10x relay lens right. ​ Note that the relay is shorter than the previous generation. ​ Also comes with an aluminum threaded cap for the relay lens (the MD series has baffles, not threads on the end of the relay lens). ​ Right: showing threaded mount and adapter used to mate to inspection scope. 
- 
-The cameras themselves are made by ToupTek. ​ The software is updated to work with them.  Similarly, ToupTek publishes their own unrelated software. 
- 
-Mechanically the camera is stronger than the MD1800. ​ It is much heavier in weight having a thicker case.  The c-mount threading is much deeper. ​ Another nice improvement is that the relay lens has a rubber gasket where as the MD relay lens I had to crudely seal myself to prevent dust from entering through the camera port.  I haven'​t compared the optical quality, I in particular wonder what sort of design tradeoff where made to make the relay lens shorter. ​ Its also a lot fatter so it might have simply been a height vs width tradeoff. ​ FOV is about the same.  The threaded port is also a nice feature, I can think of a number of situations where it can come in handy. 
- 
-One item of interest is that the USB port is a lot harder to take in/out than the MD series or other typical USB devices. 
- 
-NOTE: I had problems with the driver crashing on a USB 1.0 computer. ​ Upgrading the machine (VM) to USB 2.0 solved the problem. 
- 
-The GUI is evidently now ToupView per the new ToupTek cameras: 
- 
-{{:​microscope:​amscope:​amscope_3.2_active.png?​300|}} 
-{{:​microscope:​amscope:​amscope_3.2_splash.png?​300|}} 
- 
-HOWEVER, while the mechanical improvements are appreciated,​ I am unsure the electronics/​driver is as high quality as the previous generation. ​ The camera occasionally fails to startup in the GUI.  A large problem is that it does not work with DirectShow (verified through multiple completely different applications). ​ This is a huge issue for me as the Python library I use for the CNC microscope uses DirectShow at the core.

-  * A camera with a 2/3" (11mm diag) or higher sensor is reccomended 
-  *  
-  * C-mount adapter has 0.3X relay lens 
-  * Adapters: 
-    * MTV-3 
-      * "The MTV-3 produces a circular image approximately 16 mm in diameter, and to take full advantage of this a video camera with a 1″ sensor would be needed. The Nikon 1 J1 and V1 cameras have a CX format sensor with a 15.9 mm diagonal, and so they also appear to be suitable."​ 
-    * U-PMTVC 
-      *  "The only significant difference from the MTV-3 is that it provides some adjustment for parfocality between the video camera and the viewing eyepieces."​ 
-    * TVZ-M Zoom Video Lens (catalogue number 7-C567) ​ 
-      * magnification range of 0.55× to 1.1×. ​ 
-      * includes a parfocalising collar and is designed to work without a photo eyepiece. ​ 
-  * Diagnostic Instruments produce alternative adapters for video cameras with ½″, 2/3″ and 1″ format sensors; they are designed to work without a photo eyepiece. 
-  * "​designed for use with video cameras with either a 1″ sensor (16 mm diagonal) or a 2/3″ sensor (11 mm diagonal), depending on the choice of photo eyepiece; cameras with smaller sensors can be used but will have a restricted field of view." 
-  * "​Reduction factors in C-mount adapters are normally quoted relative to a 1″ sensor, so a 0.3× adapter would be used with a 1/3″ sensor. However, in the specification of the MTV-3 (and the U-PMTVC), Olympus use 0.3× to refer to the reduction of the image circle of an NFK 2.5× eyepiece from approximately 48 mm (to safely cover 35 mm film) down to 16 mm for a 1″ video sensor."​

-===== GUI ===== 
- 
-The OEM GUI is maybe called either ScopePhoto or MiniSee (http://​www.scopetek.com/​download/​download.html) ​ I haven'​t tried using them. 
- 
- 
-====== ToupTek ====== 
- 
-On the software side, one nice thing is that they have Windows, Mac, and Linux support. ​ The Linux GUI is simple but functional. ​ Unlike the Windows driver the Mac/Linux versions use libusb (as opposed to kernel modules). ​ This is nice in that it makes the application portable but prevents third party applications from accessing the camera. ​ Therefore I'm going to complete reverse engineering / re-implementing a driver for it so that it can work with the CNC application.

-===== Windows GUI ===== 
- 
-{{:​microscope:​touptek:​toupsee_1.1.png?​300|}} 
- 
-Similar to the Tucsen GUI it includes a file manager. ​ One thing unique to this GUI is that the video window is separate from the main window, a feature that I'm lukewarm over. 
- 
-I think there is an alternate Windows GUI. 
- 
-===== Mac/Linux GUI (ToupViewX) ===== 
- 
-Running under Linux: 
- 
-{{:​microscope:​touptek:​toupcam_linux_running.png?​300|}} 
- 
-I saw it running under Mac but didn't grab a screenshot, I think it was slightly different. ​ Although their website references the Linux version I couldn'​t find it posted anywhere. ​ However, I e-mailed support and they e-mailed it to me in a few days and seemed generally helpful. 
- 
-==== Ubuntu 12.04 x64 instructions ==== 
- 
-If you get this error: 
-  ./​ToupViewX:​ error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so.1:​ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 
-Because this is a 32 bit binary you need to install the dependencies. 
-  sudo apt-get install libbz2-1.0:​i386 
-It uses libusb so you'll need to run it as root or other workaround: 
-  sudo ./ToupViewX 
- 
- 
-====== Tucsen ====== 
- 
-===== Misc series ===== 
- 
-These all use the same driver package, haven'​t looked as to how related they are.  Very confusingly the TCC-1.4H is listed for two drivers. ​ I'll leave it in both sections for now until I understand better why

-I got one of these (actually I have a 5MP and a 10MP) off of eBay new and it had an atrocious sensor (it looks like a starfield when dark). ​ It also appears to use the same chipset as my MD1800 but the external looks nothing like on the ScopeTek website. ​ Unless I get better evidence to show this was a one time fluke, these are garbage and should be avoided. 
- 
-Update: got a new unit and it doesn'​t have problems: 
- 
-https://​picasaweb.google.com/​JohnDMcMaster/​Tucsen50MP?​authuser=0&​feat=directlink 
- 
-Interestingly enough it has a different USB VID / UID such that it no longer works with the AmScope software. ​ But it doesn'​t have the bad pixels (or at least visibly). ​ Still, it has the same internals so it probably uses the same driver. ​ Presumably the Tucsen casing is larger to give it a higher quality feeling. ​ That said, I don't mind a heavy duty aluminum case but it is oversized. 
- 
-NOTE: I had problems with the driver crashing on a VM, possibly the same problem as the AmScope driver (needed to enable faster USB) 
- 
-I recently found out there is a Linux SDK although I didn't see any mention of it on their site.  It provides an interface to libCamCore.so.1,​ a libusb based userspace library.
