I'm really puzzled by this issue. It came up a couple of months ago, and
the overwhelming response seemed to be in support of Avermedia products,
rather than the elmo. Well, based on that we purchased 5 Avervision 355
AF cameras. I set one up for one of the teachers, and as soon as we got
it going, she remarked that it didn't seem to be as responsive as the
elmos (autofocus), and I noticed that it was a little on the dark side.
She ended up purchasing an elmo on her own. She set it up, and I was
blown away by the difference! The autofocus was immediate, and the
colors were bright and sharp.
I'm thinking to myself - what am I missing here? This particular model
of the elmo was clearly superior to the Avervision, and the price of the
cameras was pretty close, app. $600.
