  • Simple and intuitive user interface.
  • Live image preview.
  • One-click, single image capture.
  • Auto / manual exposure.
  • Gain and Gamma control.
  • Auto / manual white balance with manual colour and saturation control.
  • Full screen live image mode.
  • Zoom into / out of live image for fine focusing.
  • Capture images in jpg or tiff format.
  • Save and quickly switch between two camera configuration user-sets.
