I just bought the IPEVO Point 2 View (P2V) document camera for SGD$99 and was eager to let it have a shootout with the AVerMedia Visualizer (costs SGD$600+) in classroom.
First look at the IPEVO P2V:
– Low cost
– Decent image quality under low light
– No toggling between computer and document camera
– Function as web cam too
– Build quality isn’t the best
– Height of stand is limited
– Must switch on computer for it to work
– No zoom button. Can only zoom using the P2V software
Overall I highly recommend it any educator who is looking for a portable or backup document camera. Schools can purchase a few sets for contingency use too.
