I'm looking into getting a microscope with an attached camera. Have any of you done this and do you have any recommendations?

Amazingly, the Galaxy S5 and above have reasonable magnifier apps with camera features, however it does suffer very badly with even a little camera shake, so holding the device against another object for stability is a must.
