Summary: This is a straightforward inexpensive document camera. It requires software to use, so you can't just plug it in and go. The software is free, and only available via download, but at least you don't have to keep track of the disk. The software is a little hokey, but has a few decent features (snapshots, zoom, autofocus) The camera only requires a USB cable (included) so you don't have to run a separate power cord. I used it on a Mac and it worked well enough.
Summary: I bought this for a workshop that was demonstrating detailed work to 20 people. The document camera enabled the instructor to show all the details to everyone at the same time. Good for all concerned.
Summary: My wife is a teacher and we ordered this camera for her classroom. Since the order the school is thinking about bulk ordering these for each room. It is compact, has great clarity and even has a light by the camera. The software is intuitive enough for a child to control. It can double as an awesome webcam as well. This is a lot better than another document camera my wife used that cost 5x more. Great product!
Summary: I love this document camera. I tried a cheaper one first and I was not happy with the clarity, so I bought the Ladibug. The clarity is great. My students can easily read the information on the screen even with no lights turned off. Great product!
Summary: Comments about Lumens DC120 Ultra-Portable HD Ladibug UXGA Document Camera USB: We bought this for my wife to use at school and it works so well I am buying several for the school where I am principal. The ladibug is much more user friendly and takes less space that an Elmo plus the quality of the picture is better! The price allowed me to buy 4.5 of them for the price of one Elmo!
Pros: Easy To Setup, Easy to use, Great picture quality
