A document camera.

On-device buttons, optical zoom, native H.264 hardware.

Garbage; do not buy this overpriced toy. It's only "good" because it comes with a stand, but newer webcams are coming out with the threading for mounting to a simple $20 stand.

on ChinaBuye

This is a fantastic item.

I got one black and one gold. The black looks great. The gold is okay-looking.

Very solid. Almost metal. Good grip.

The cap stays on tightly.

The MicroSD card goes in the "nose" of the reader, and is easy to insert/remove.

It's easy to pull out of a computer, even though it is fairly small.
