 Each time you click Calibrate it will reset the Express Mode calibration. We are adding new features to enable you to edit/save the calibrations.


The Express Calibration mode can have its capture time adjusted. To do that, click on Preferences from the top left, then set your preferred time for the Express Capture (seconds) from the Application Setting popup.
