The document camera was extremely easy to set up. I simply downloaded the software and plugged it in. The ease of use allows me to integrate more technology into my classroom. I'm still working on focusing and lighting, but feel that with more time to learn how to use all the features that will improve. I do believe the SmartBoard is more the issue than the camera as far as the focusing and lighting are concerned. I look forward to purchasing a projector to test this theory. I definitely recommend this product. The only reason I gave it a 4 was because it didn't come with any sort of user's manual.
