Cameras Included

Tool Factory uses the Olympus FE series cameras in its own training labs, because they withstand the rigors of daily classroom use. These easy-to-use, high quality, point-and-shoot cameras come standard with educational features such as Super Macro Mode for up-close science shots, and Panorama Mode for larger scenic or stadium arena shots. We’ve also included one higher-resolution SP-series camera. 7 Megapixels and advanced manual controls are great for yearbook shooting and photography classes.

Accessories Included

Our favorite classroom accessory is undoubtedly the Quick Charge batteries. Put 2 AA batteries in the outside slots of the recharger, and the other 2 in your camera, and before you can use up the batteries in your camera, the new ones are charged. It’s a bit like having perpetual battery life! Higher capacity xD storage cards are also included for every camera, to keep you shooting all day without filling up the camera’s card. And extended warranties cover all breakage for a period of 3 years from purchase. The hard-shell carrying case has wheels and an extendable handle for easy travel between classrooms. One purchase will benefit the entire school, and save you from procurement hassles! This complete one stop purchase has a retail value $4,554, Tool Factory’s price is $3,357–a savings of $1,197!

Curriculum Included

Tool Factory’s Digital Camera Guide for Educators will guide teachers through the A to Z’s of owning a digital camera, and it’s the perfect companion for classroom teaching. The large-format picture book begins with shooting basics, and advances to high-tech vocabulary such as “Aperture” and “Rule of Thirds”. Every lesson is designed to be grasped at a glance, but supporting text is provided if you desire a deeper understanding of the lesson. For project-building software, we’ve also included MultiMedia Lab V which is ideal for making slide shows and web-enabled presentations. Your students will be shooting claymation animations in a flash!
