Do you have one, and if so which one? Our school may be getting our first one soon, so I was wondering which one people liked best, where you got it from and any other such tips, hints or recommendations you have.

Thanks.

Here is my Blog post about the Document Cameras we are using in my district. Cost about $430

Thanks for the article Michael. Looks like a great tool to have.
I have used a Logitech Webcam Pro 9000 that comes with a stand for it, but I can't remember the company that makes sells the stand/camera combo. I will follow-up when I get a response back from the school that is using them and let you know. I think the cost of the stand/camera combo is about $160 when they bought them. They might be cheaper now since the price of the camera has dropped.
Thanks. I look forward to the update. Any idea how well the Logitech would compare to a standard document camera?
I haven't used a standard document camera so I can't really comment on that directly. The school chose the Logitech over other cameras due to the resolution and update speed. I have used it a little for displaying pages, scanning pages, and putting together videos for vodcasts. In all cases, it has worked exceptionally well. The only drawback is a lack of integrated light. A desk light works OK, but I would have preferred a smaller light on a gooseneck when displaying documents.

The company they were ordered through was Dukane. Get info at http://www.dukane.com/av/products/Item_VisualizersCameras.asp?Model...


A friend of mine has probably used it a lot more than I have, so if you want to talk to someone who has used it more, drop me a private message with your email, and I will see if he will contact you directly. (And I will try to get him to sign up for this board.)
