Desktop Video Camera Sports Rotatable Head
Canon's new VIZCAM 1000 desktop video camera can display color video images of 3D objects, documents, photographs, slides and transparencies on any NTSC video device, such as a TV monitor, projector or VCR. Its unique three-axis arm provides complete versatility in camera positioning. Each arm can be independently adjusted for consistently stable, motion-free imaging. The camera head rotates a full 180 degrees, transforming the unit into a portrait camera for person-to-person applications such as desktop videoconferencing. The VIZCAM's optical-quality glass lens with manual focus and iris control offers a wider viewing angle than other desktop cameras. It can display images ranging from an 8.5" x 11" document to objects the size of a postage stamp. A small footprint (6") allows for convenient positioning next to the computer.
