Can you recommend a compatible USB cam?

We are using usb_cam_node on our system and are looking for a compatible camera. Requirements are: >=50 fps, ideal but not neccesarily 1920x1200 px, colour, mono camera, USB3 or USB2, as small as possible. I was looking into different industrial cameras with individual SDKs but I'd prefer some plug&play solution. Do you know any cam that fulfils these requirements? Thanks very much!

Ive always had good luck with this camera:

Depending on what you're trying to do, you might not even need an industrial or "robotics" specific camera. I've seen enough hobby / prototypes with these rolling around over the years. If you're looking for something more productized, I can find some other options. But this is a good cheap place to start that works on UVC.
