I really love this document camera!! I was looking for something easy to use in my classroom that is light weight and durable. This document camera is just that. The picture is very clear, the software is easy to download and use on my computer and it’s very easy to move the camera. Highly recommend for the

I bought an Inswan document camera a while ago and have been using it to take pictures of all my paperwork for filing purpose. It worked pretty well. Recently, due to the Corona virus situation, my daughter was forced to do all her school projects at home. As a result, she had to look for a solution to effectively demonstrate how to

This is a great, easy to use document camera. It plugs into the USB port on my computer and you get prompts to install the software (similar to a new mouse or simple add on).
I’m using this for remote teaching of art classes during the Covoid crisis. And it’s been easy to navigate. I can zoom in for close ups of samples. The

I have a very good document camera in my classroom provided by my school, but I needed something at home. I had an "HUE HD Pro USB Document Camera" but I was unsatisfied with the resolution and video quality, the base was not heavy enough to keep it standing up, and it doesn't auto-focus or auto-brightness. The V4K is better in every

I absolutely love this document camera. I use it daily because it is so easy to use and allows all my students to be able to see. I plug it in to my computer and download the app which was very easy to do then use my projector to project it onto my board. I love that I can move the arm around and the self adjust works great. My students

I got it to work. It comes with no instructions. There's the address of a website on the foot of the camera. You have to go to the website to download the visualizer program to make it work. At first, it would not work, I had to go into my privacy settings to give the software permission to access the camera. It took me a while to

I purchased the "Ipevo 5-883-4-01-00 VZ-R HDMI/USB Dual Mode 8MP Document Camera" for my girlfriend that for the longest time has used the large transparency-sheet projectors for school and personal art projects. She would project images on a walls to create larger versions of drawings, etc. This particular camera, coupled with

I didn't even look for directions. Everything was just plug and play. There are two wires needed: 1) the HDMI that plugs into whatever monitor or projector you're using (which is NOT included), and 2) a micro-USB cable for power (which IS included) just like you probably use for your non-Apple phone.

I didn't bother with the

When I left a message for Ipevo about an issue I was having, I thought I'd never get a response back, but within 2 hours I had a response. Great customer service!!!
I was able to solve the problem myself, it wasn't the Ipevo doc camera at all. I'm using this with Zoom and didn't realize that Zoom settings automatically have the

this is an amazing piece of technology! I got WIFI because I have a newer mac that doesn't have the USB and I just thought it would be handy. However, it really should be Bluetooth--if I connect to WIFI, I can no longer use the WIFI on my computer, whereas with Bluetooth, you can use both. So, this is not going to be a feature I use

Paid $100 extra for the wireless model and this turned out to be a big mistake. The VZ-X creates/broadcasts its own wireless network to which you can connect your Apple TV or iPad. But sometimes our 4K Apple TV would fail to connect, and sometimes it would connect but then be so laggy that it was unusable. The image would freeze

I have used an older model of this document camera for the past few years in my kindergarten classroom for everything from showing illustrations in books larger so that the kids can see the details to dissecting owl pellets (again, so the kids can see the details) to demonstrating hands-on math activities.

I wanted to have several months with this before writing a review.

There are also typically the most useless reviews)

The Ipevo Ziggi-HD is definitely the best value / most minimal presenter camera I've used. It's lightweight, carry-able, and really simple to use. It has almost no extraneous features, and in general just works well.

Pros:
Really good visual quality.
Very few things to fiddle with or set. It just

I like that it’s easy to simple and easy to use, the picture quality isn’t bad. Sometimes I wish I could zoom a little more and have the focus quality better, but overall,

We purchased the DC-21 primarily to use as a document scanner while doing research in university libraries. We found that the image quality (for PDFs) is very poor - fuzzy at best, problems with glare, auto-focus often just a bit off the mark - manual adjustment required. Doubtless it is great for its other intended uses such as

The image on this camera is acceptable in good ambient light. Don't count on the built-in light to make up for low ambient light conditions, though. It's not very bright. It's fine for high contrast documents on light backgrounds, but I'm not sure it would be effective for stop motion animation, say, which I always want in my doc

My current document camera is about nine years old and is starting to become unreliable. It was top of the line when I got it, but compared to the features on this...It might as well be an antique.

I bought this cam after a chain of bad cam purchases. I purchased based on a very limited review number( 6) which were all 5 star. I hooked it up on a USB extension and it worked wonderfully no fussing around with extra plugs or downloads.

I was under the impression that this camera had a 'hard surface' that it mounted to to provide you with a consistent platform for scanning.

While it turns out that this is not the case, and in fact it is a soft rubber surface, don't let that dissuade you.

In terms of effectiveness, this camera is spot on. I did not

This document scanner has advantages and constraints. The advantages are: (1) it is pretty much plug and play; (2) it scans high resolution images in jpeg format; (3) it has OCR capability to convert image files to editable text; and it is under $100.
