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 camera

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

Most reviews here talk about this camera being used in a classroom. Another application would be to use it as a medical device for people with low vision and it does a great job here.Aging parent with macular degeneration cannot read newspaper and books anymore without some magnification aid.

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 USB viewing

I love this camera! The picture quality is fantastic and it has a light, which other cameras don’t have. It’s also really easy to move the camera in closer for smaller images or further away when I need a wider view. I also like that you can adjust the brightness to reduce glare. I use it for speech therapy on Zoom for teletherapy

I got a document camera from my school, when we switched to hybrid learning for use in my classroom last year. Before that, I was using a webcam on a bendable metal arm for online learning. Had issues with both! When I returned to school this year, with full classes, I still wanted to use a document camera for demonstration via our

I'm a kindergarten teacher and this little camera saved my life. I can show math models under the camera and they show up clear and crisp. The led light on this is fabulous because I can turn the lights off in my classroom and the children can see the projection clearly. And because I have an old projector I have to turn the lights off

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.

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.

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 mirror

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

All this is just a webcam and it has a software installed which basically crops the images. So if it find an edge of a page it will crop it. Nothing else.

I am a school-based Speech/Language Pathologist. Last spring when the pandemic hit, I borrowed a fairly antique document viewer from a teacher to use at home to provide speech and language therapy.

I’m an elementary school teacher and needed a document camera for distance learning. I can screen share while the scanning software is open, and students can see my writing in real time.

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.
