Overall I am VERY IMPRESSED with this! Especially for the price! I really recommend it.
Reviewed in the United States on 24 May 2019
Overall I am VERY IMPRESSED with this! Especially for the price! I really recommend it.
A few neat features:
Metal frame with rubberized base. There is a touch sensitive button to adjust the six LEDs for brightness. Camera is mounted straight down at the end of the arm, and the angle can be adjusted within that 90 degrees. Please note that this will take TWO USB ports on your computer, so plan accordingly. Software that comes with it is excellent, too! Camera image quality is remarkable if you''re used to older devices (or cheap-o cams).
The mat you use is MUCH larger than in the photos. I am very happy about that. I was a little worried it might not work for a regular letter size paper just because of the photos, but I knew A3 is larger..It worked out. The lines for document placement are clear but unobtrusive. Makes laying out the pages for scanning very simple. Material is the same as a basic mouse pad and doesn't slip around on my desk.
Use One: Document / Overhead Camera
The CamShop software allows for recording video from the device, but the preview image isn't large enough to use as an overhead camera in a classroom. I found that the built-in Camera app in Windows 10 works perfectly for the job. Combined with SmartInk (that comes with a SmartBoard) and you've got a perfect solution for a classroom document camera. I love it!
Camera app utilizes the full screen and can take high resolution snapshots (with HDR if wanted) and record video with audio. This is perfect for in-class presentations AND to record sessions to upload to YT for absent students. It's exactly what I needed it for. Very straight forward, and the Camera app in Win10 does the job. I imagine I could find other programs that will work, but this suits my needs and didn't cost any extra!
Use Two: Document Scanner
As a scanner, this is fantastic. Image clarity is beyond my expectations. The difference between 8MP compared to my old document camera with 2.5MP is startling. CamShop software makes it very easy to scan and customize images. I downloaded the latest version from the iCODIS website. There are several different scan modes for different types of documents and the edge detection works really well (especially when you have it lined up properly on the mat.) Ability to save as several different formats including PDF with OCR text. No issues.
You can scan an entire document packet as an editable/fillable PDF in just a few minutes. I scanned 27 individual pages for a summer packet and combined it into one PDF file. The "image" version was over 50MB, but the OCR text version was 2MB. Didn't have any issue with missing words or errors.
One feature that is lacking is the ability to reduce page curl. This isn't what you would want to use if you plan to scan from an actual book. Don't get me wrong, it does a fine job of scanning from a book, but you need to adjust the page to be as flat as possible first.
Very satisfied with the device as a document scanner. The software is fantastic.
I will be using this daily in my classroom. For the price, it exceeds all my expectations. I am coming from a camera that cost over $600 ten years ago, and at less than $200 I am shocked at the quality. I highly recommend this to any teacher out there looking to have their own document camera that they can take with them. I am impressed!
I must mention that the glare from the light can be a consistent struggle, so be prepared to deal with it and experiment with a number of lighting situations until you find one that works for you. So far, I've been scanning magazines and papers, and I have experimented with light coming from two separate sources and angles in different combinations depending on the glares I get back from my documents. Fortunately, the different built-in LED settings you can use offer a wide amount of configurable settings, so I simply play around with the various scenarios until I find one that produces the best results (the least amount of glare and reflection). All in all, it can be a bit obnoxious, but it doesn't ruin everything. It can be dealt with using a bit of patience and determination.
Other than that, the camera quality is pretty good but not spectacular. The images are fairly detailed, but nothing close to what my former Epson scanner used to produce. That being said, they definitely fall within the range of "useable" for personal use, which is all I'm really looking for to help me organize an endless amount of newspapers, magazines, and several other materials such as personal notes etc. so I'm very pleased with the results nonetheless. It exactly fits the purpose I bought it for, so I am quite pleased with it. It does indeed pick up a very good amount of detail, and you are able to read even fine print that you might not expect to be able to, making it a solid camera. The glare is basically the one major "negative" along with the somewhat mediocre image quality - though I certainly wouldn't call the image quality bad, either.
Now I'll talk about the positives of the product. The software is very good and makes it possible to export a variety of useful image and document formats. It is still somewhat basic however, so expect to use some other software such as Adobe's lineup if you are trying to stitch or edit your results further. That being said, much like the hardware, the software also checks all the boxes, covers all the bases, and achieves what it should. There are several options for how you wish to view, manage, produce, and export your files, as well as some handy features that can help you use your images in email or for print, and video and barcode scanning capabilities. You can easily view your final image file names, as well as where it is located on your local filesystem, which makes managing your final pdfs or images much easier. I do think that it is a pretty time-consuming process to export a lenghty pdf which I find a little unfortunate, but it is to be expected I suppose.
Well, that about covers it for my review. If you are a bit flexible in your demands for the product and have an ounce of patience for its quirks and light issues, then this is a practical product that can bring a higher level of speed, efficiency, and organization to your workflow. At $180.00, the price seems fair to me - not necessarily too high or too low. For the price, I wouldn't have minded a bit higher image quality or having no glare issues whatsoever, but at the same time
the incredibly helpful and intuitive software, impressive construction of the hardware, great zoom features, and extended functionality make up for these other potential shortcomings. That really is where the scanner earns it's money - by providing what so many other products simply aren't capable of doing.
To me, that's really what you buy this product for, and I'm glad that I did. I don't regret my purchase and am confident I'll be using my iCONIS to help me organize books, magazines, receipts, product instructions, warranties and much more to de-clutter my daily routine and help bring sanity to my life. Perfect! I'm enjoying it so far, and would not hesitate to recommend - just remember to bring a little patience and learn to live with the quirks, and it's a fabulous product.
