Survey Results

County extension directors answered the question "what do you like most about the system?"

  • Able to receive pictures
  • We have not had a printer capable of printing pictures. Hopefully our new one will print the camera images. I think it would be great for marketing ISUE.
  • The technology for communicating info - "We Look Smart"
  • Fast, simple, accurate! If state spec. is in I might have an answer in less than 30 minutes! Rather than 1 week - or more!
  • I like the way you can download all digital camera photos at once & view them all at the same time!
  • Convenient
  • Thanks for having us!! Great pics.
  • It's easy & much quicker than mailing specimens. Clients are impressed. I'd really like to get my own digital camera since working with this one!
  • The flexcam is very handy and useful for quickly taking and sending digital images.

  • Quick response for clients.
