The image is right side up if you position yourself so you are looking straight down (I think, it's been a while since I tried it- but they do show that on the diagram and on the online Neolucida page)
.
I haven't had time to spend with mine beyond a couple of sketches right when I got it. You definitely can't move around! I could see some potential.

Good luck!

My experience was that the mirror was so tiny that I couldn't sketch any thing more than a couple inches tall.

I purchased one.  It's a wonderful tool.  It does exactly what it is supposed to do.  What it's supposed to do is enable you to lightly sketch the outlines of the subject matter in front of you.  Once done, you can go back and fill it in and make your  drawing all pretty and such.    That's it.



If you try to make it do what it's not supposed to do, it won't do it.   Examples of what it's not supposed to do?  Well, it can't freeze a frame for you, so if you're trying to sketch the face of an 8-month old child in the throes of a crying fit, or a kitten playing with a sock filled with catnip, or if you're sitting in the back seat of a Land Rover chasing wildebeest across the Kalahari, trying to sketch the back of the driver's head--if you're trying to do those kinds of things, you'll fail miserably.



The thing's gotta be stationary, and your subject's gotta be completely still.



All Hail the Good Life!

There was some conversation on this listserv a while back about the NeoLucida. I was wondering if anyone here has gotten one, and if so, what you think of it. Thanks!
