I'm looking for a simple camera that has good quality. Requirements are that it can be zoomed in (will be zoomed once only), can be mounted through my own means, so preferably not spherical, and take good quality pictures. It is going to be used to take pictures of tubes with QR codes on top of it, with it being affixed to one position on the machine and zoomed in slightly.
Ideally looking for a good cost to quality ratio for this simple task. Around the $50 area would be excellent.
