SMART simply re-brands the EMLO doc cams.  I would suggest looking at
the Avermedia document cameras.  In my opinion these beat ELMO's little
red pants off... he does wear pants right?

Subject: SMART vs. ELMO document cameras

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.
