The preview panel in the driver software’s too small to see anything but a gross focus problem, so you have to shoot a by image and then look at it, then tweak the lens, then look again The albums are just ordinary directories, not some fancy proprietary thing. Fiddling with the focus lets you get quite sharp pictures out of the PenCam for close-ups and for landscape shots.

The framing’s off because I didn’t compensate adequately for the offset viewfinder – there’s no framing guide at all in the viewfinder, but it’s very bright and clear, at least.

When it’s untethered, it always slowly drains its batteries aiptek pencam especially if there are images in the memory.
