I have used several cameras
c615 logitech webcam , 9000 logitech webcam
canon Eos t3i which does amazing!! and now an MU300 amscope camera usb 2.0 color which is also amazing.
I have not yet been able to make the dual camera setup work in david 5 but even with a single camera i am getting amazig results. the webcams are alright for very basic things but i tossed those with in the first month to upgrade.
now i get professional grade scans used for manufacturing and reverse engineering.

Sounds great. Could you post a screen grab of one of your scans without any smoothing or other reduction of the mesh ?
Can you also tell us how many patterns you used ?
Regarding cameras, on the old David forum, you will find many posts.
I have used Canon DSLR (live view, low quality) and Nikon and Panasonic using HDMI capture (fullHD and 4K).
I am now using a PointGrey but these cameras do not work in stereo mode because of the directshow driver.
Imagingsource cameras are the ones used by David (HP).
I guess speed is also a critiria. The more expensive cameras have higher frame rates (ImagingSource, Basler, PointGrey).
Here is a post with different test I made:
IMHO, the most important feature is fine adjustment of the shutter speed/frame rate to get rid of surface artifacts.
I didn't know about the MU300 but it could be a very good solution if high speed is not paramount. You must also think about a powerful computer with such a high resolution camera.

I was using Kurokesu C1 camera which is a usb2.0 1080p dual setup and now slowly moving to a monochrome UHD.
Heres a link to a quick comparison
