I have been wanting this Lucy pro for a long time. I takes a little time to master, but I will work it out. Thanks for the instructions it helps lol.
Have a hard time finding the definitive lines of my photo even using the filtered screen
It's a nice machine, does what it's supposed to do, with practice, especially after watching many independent videos. BUT, the box arrived without proper taping so anyone could have opened it during shipping. It's packed like a cheap toy -- a bunch of things tossed into a box, nothing lovely about the unpacking process, and finally the assembly instructions are a joke. Had to go on line to foreign videos to see it assembled and work backwards. Sorry, very amateurish. Other than that, I'm happy.
Love it! Easy to use and sturdy.
I love accuracy. This easy gadget saves me an enormous amount of time that I would otherwise spend calculating the parameters of my subject matter. It takes mere minutes to outline my objects, so that I can spend my time on shading, color, texture etc to my drawings and paintings, the fun stuff! Very versatile and easy to transport.
A modern version of an old drawing aid. Fun to use and easy, I am happy with my camera lucida.
I have used both the LUCY pro and LUCY flex in my field drawings and have found it helpful in terms of proportions and distances. Proportions and distances are major components in describing the Western landscape. Many students (and workshop attendees) struggle to render both the immensity of the high mountain peaks and the great distances between the viewer and the subject. The use of a LUCY can be a great help in this regard and can allow for artists to more quickly move onto mark making and color descriptions.

I bought the LUCY in the hope it would help my students learn to draw. Some students that had trouble concentrating with normal drawing instruction showed a renewed focus and showed considerable renewed effort in learning to draw. It is easy and fun to use and I would recommend you give it try. Here are some samples of portraits that I have done. The LUCY is a big time-saver and makes getting a likeness much easier.

As an art teacher and owner of my own art school in Maui, I was very excited about the new LUCY pro. My first project using the LUCY was an 11�14 acrylic painting of a sail boat in the Lahaina harbor. I worked from one of my photographs � once I had it all alined to my satisfaction I was able to draw the image with ease. As soon as I master the use of this wonderful tool, I plan on teaching my students how to use it. They are as excited as I am and can�t wait to get their hands on it.
Your instrument, in keeping with the tradition of a true craftsmen tool is a worthy addition alongside all the other items to be found in an artist�s studio. The LUCY opens up a whole new world of possibilities. This instrument, requires a degree of patience and skill which rewards with truly amazing results which are genuinely astounding. The LUCY reduces the time it takes to measure a subject thus enabling rapid progress for the artist.

I am a retired Psychotherapist, and loved my career, but I always wanted to be an artist. I had used these tools to help clients with self esteem issues, for years before retiring. Not to mention what the LUCY has done for my own self esteem. At 52 years of age, I can only wonder how different my life may have been, if I had been introduced to these glorious tools earlier, perhaps in my childhood even. I was basically a stick figure artist most of my life, till I worked with my first LUCY made and designed by Les Cookson. I am no Rembrandt, but I have made money with my new skills. I have used these tools for so many things, art, sculpture, photography, to restore art projects I have purchased. I have found so many other surprising ways of using these tools as well. Think out of the box, and you will be surprised what you come up with.

I LOVE THIS THING! I am so pleased and so excited and it is like MAGIC. It has added to my art degree training and expand what I can do. You can also sit in front of a computer screen with a digital image and use the LUCY to draw it. I tried looking at some digital images through the LUCY and view is 100% better than with an opaque projector.
The LUCY is suited to reducing panoramas and natural scenes to the size of a large drawing pad, and its portability makes it ideal for such image capture. You don�t have to rely upon electricity as with projection systems, and the filters help one deal with all manner of natural lighting. You really learn a lot about light and seeing when you begin to play around with such an instrument. You feel like part of the camera, in fact you are a part of the camera; the mirror reflects the image onto a surface, the artist plays the part of the developing chemicals which fix the image on the paper. Another and perhaps greater instruction one gets from using the LUCY is practice in seeing and manipulating proportion, which, as Leonardo Di Vinci said, is divine.
