Ultra 8 document cameraBy: Kenneth on 19 June 2020Impressive performance. I ended up getting this device because I recently purchased a relatively inexpensive document camera that had a USB 2.0 connection, which was problematic in that there was significant lag between writing something (being captured by the camera) and the corresponding movement showing up on the computer screen. In other words - I definitely wasted my money in purchasing a cheap device. Actually - I didn't expect to get serious lag issues with a USB 2.0 document camera. So that was disappointing. Maybe not all of them are like that. Not sure. That's when I had to do some online searching for 'USB 3.0' devices, and ended up taking my chances on Ultra 8. However, this time - it was a more educated punt - due to seeing good reviews about it, and the features aligned with what I needed. So I purchased online the Ultra 8. As for camera lags --- no such problem whatsoever seen with the Ultra 8 document camera, with USB 3.0 connection. Very decent resolution. More than happy with the resolution and image quality. I also like the single button-press focus-locking feature, which basically carries out an auto-focus step, immediately followed by fixing/locking the focus (so that the focus stays the same from that point onward). Very convenient. Works excellently with ZOOM screen sharing. The only minor criticism is that the main pivoting arm requires significant force and effort to move the main arm away from its 'storage' position. There is the feeling that if you are not careful enough with unlocking the main pivot arm from the storage position, then it could possibly break the arm off from its rotating base mechanism. This will be no issue for users that aren't planning to pack up this device and fold it back into the storage position. My recommendation would be to not keep pivoting the arms anyway - because obviously there will be flex cables inside the arm, and we know what happens when flex cables go through too many bend cycles, right? The flex wires can break (like they eventually did for the old flip-lid mobile phones). Other than that - a wonderful document camera. I really like this particular device. It works very nicely. Nicely done -- to whoever (or whichever team) designed this device.
