Joyusing (or is that Joy Using?) announces a new 4K UHD document camera – or visualizer – with a 12x optical zoom and 10x digital for an insane 120x. With a capture area around A3 and a lot of ports, this is intended for serious use.

The 2.8kg (6.1 pound) device is definitely making a play for our best document cameras list with an unusually high-resolution 13-megapixel camera, making possible 4K video and 4160 x 3120 pixel scans.
