- I just started using a Hue. I saw a teacher using it to present at a conference
and several people asked her about it. They are very reasonable-I think I paid
49.95. It is really easy to use -plug it in to your USB port. I project it onto
my big screen with a projector. The one thing I don't like is the base is light
weight. I taped it to a big cannister so it can be up higher. I use it for demos
and reading books to kdg ( especially if the illustrations are small) The
illumination is good even if you have the classroom lights on. For the price, I
have been very pleased. You do have to do a manual focus but once it is set up
to where you are working, you don't have to re-focus anyway. I ordered it direct
from the company in England and it was cheaper even with shipping than on
Jeryl in SC
- I used to use the HUE and know what you mean, Jeryl, about the light base.
I switched to the IPEVO's USB Document Camera ($69).
It has a heavy base, great clarity, and integrates with photo booth on the mac.
I love it so much I wrote up a list of ways I use it and they posted them on the ipevo blog.
