Here in Barre we have switched from using Ziggy's for all the reasons
others have mentioned... to using the Hue HD Pro - you can purchase
directly from the company or on Amazon for ~ $80 each... this is now our
standard document camera for most teachers...only a few need something more

Many of ours are over a year old and are holding up well - we have had to
deal with the company for a few replacements under warranty - they have
been very easy to deal with.
