is it for repair or inspection
for repair its is ok with 10x and below 5-7x will be ok
if it is for inspection you can go higher

i suspect you are talking about stereo microscopes
there you get depth vision

you can check l rossmans repairs i remember that he talked about the most preferrable magnification when doing repairs
i cant remember when it was but it was some time ago

get one where you can adjust its magnification lets say 1-10x

also the focus length is also of importance movement to and away from the lens where it stays focused

Itís mainly for repair really, Iíve also heard you can use and heat seeking camera to aid detect faulty components ?
I might be getting involved in repairs on circuit boards for someone and just weighing up the pros and cons

I use an Andonstar AD249S, both for inspection and for assembly, I find it excellent and has an affordable cost.

heat camera is excellent addition for servive surely much better than finger sensory

a zoom between 1 to 10 would suffice the higher you go the shorter th focal length will be

you will mostly be using 4 to 7 depending on component size qnd your eyes

Try This one
https://www.amazon.de/-/en/gp/product/B0C5MJFX1X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have it and very satisfied. High enough so can solder below it,
The minus is that magnification is too high, and some times you need smaller one, but can not change. However it is perfect for my use (semi professional) and very low cost and very good quality. Can make video, shoots, working with internal batter, connection to USB as  also to PC.

Here are some videos to give you some ideas. Not meant as a product endorsement. This guy sell rebranded AMSCOPE products, or at least get things from the same manufacturer just saying

Edit: The camera look like a Lapsun 1080P 60FPS SONY IMX385 V2 according to this video
https://www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&v=5upKluG-qi8
looking more into it you can find all the products here https://lapsun.aliexpress.com/store/612308? spm=a2g0o.detail.0.0.7c9aJ6lAJ6lAGV (here they offer power adapters with the correct wall socket for your country)

Why I prefer HDMI Microscope and not Binocular Stereoscope. What is a Barlow lens and comparison
