Before purchasing a new camera, or using your existing camera, it is best to test your options to see which camera solution works best for you.
How do I know if a web camera will work?
1. The litmus test is, "Can you Skype with it?" Any camera you can use to Skype can be used with Lightning Grader.
2. The camera must connect to the computer via USB; VGA connectors do not work.
3. Do not run your camera software at the same time you are running Lightning Grader. After choosing your camera, close the browser and reopen to allow Lightning Grader to recognize the change. See the "Lightning Grader Camera Grading Quick Tips" for further assistance with scanning.
4. Test, test, test!
