If you want to go smaller go to AliExpress and look for m8 lenses or smaller. Note that you'll likely have to glue to the lens mount on the board for the smaller lens mount and lenses.

Re: Saving a txt file

Hi, windows only rescans the file on USB plugin. If you make a new file windows will no find it because it doesn't expect the USB drive to create its own files.

There's no way to fix this except unplugging the camera. We cannot change windows/Mac/Linux driver behavior.
