I had problems with running this application initially. It turns out to be a problem with the QX5 because Digital blue have changed the supplier for the USB chipset.

The developer was really responsive and worked with me, sending me a debug version ann a couple of other versions of the software, in an effort to detect and then bypass the hardware issue.

Eventually, I settled on a USB hub that had individual transaction translators for each port. It worked well and the software is fantastic. Lovely images with frame averaging to reduce noise, to boot. The developer worked really hard to resolve what was a hardware error caused by the QX5.

Buy from him with confidence and get a great product with what is very rare service. Highly recommended, without any reservation. Thank you Eric.

OK, no comments/reviews since 2004? Time for some then methinks.
Though the program is not for free any longer, it is *very* cheep for what you get. I have the site license so I can install it on any of my macs at home and on the road. I use it with the QX5 and I am very happy about quality and stability. It is clearly much better than the (PC-)software that comes with the QX5.
It also makes me long for one of those UV/IR hand-microscopes ;-).......

Vey mini review. Simple, excellent little application for the Intel Play Camera. Does what it does (captures and displays images) much more elegantly than the Intel equivalent for Windows. Hightly reccomended.
