Can someone please explain the advantage of having a SMART document camera to go with a SMARTBoard vs. having an ELMO?  If these are not to always be used together (i.e. the camera is on a separate cart to be used around the building by others, the SMART Board is in only one room), is it really worth the additional $200?  

This is also in a school where none of the teachers have ever used either before, so the learning curve with the SMARTBoard will be steep. And, the extra $ may be the difference between having the SMART camera and having additional equipment. 

Thanks for information.
