This shot shows the user interface of the TWAIN acquire module
used by ZoomBrowser, and also for importing images from the camera
into other applications.
A screenshot of the unique "Time Tunnel" image-organizer: Images appear spiral away into space, distance along the "tunnel" indicating distance in time when they were originally taken. (Definitely one of the more unusual software interfaces we've seen.)
This is a shot of the PowerStitch panorama/stitching application. It appears to work quite well, and will stitch horizontally, vertically, or in 2x2 matrices, to boost the effective resolution of the camera to something closer to 4 megapixels. The shots shown on-screen here show widely different exposures, due to the clouds that were racing by that day, casting intermittent shadows over the scene.
The SlideShow Maker program (shown above) was probably the
least-compelling of the lot, but does solve the problem of uploading
images back to the camera for a slide show that have been modified
by other applications. (Most imaging programs use a different
variant of the JPEG standard than do digicams, so photos that
have been manipulated on the PC won't display again on the camera.)
SlideShow Maker circumvents this problem by re-processing images
back to the camera's format.
