Review of Linux Compatibility
The Ipevo Point 2 View (P2V) is a 2 megapixel USB webcam with with object lens for macro imaging. It has the USB-ID 1778:0204 and currently does not shows up with a name in the lsusb output:
Bus 002 Device 008: ID 1778:0204
However, when plugged in, the camera is recognized by the kernel and is supported by the webcam driver (uvcvideo kernel module):

The webcam has two buttons, one to set focus and one to take picture. The focus button works out of the box. If one wants to take pictures with the second on, it might be necessary to configure xinput for the corresponding event.
There are several add-ons available for the webcam, which allows it to be used for scanning of books, or being attached to a microscope.
