TIPS & TRICKS
Sharpness of the images The user will have to train a little bit in order to get a correct sharpness of images. In case the sharpness if not ok, the cause is just that the distance to the area to be captured was not correct (too far or too close). Best of course is when the patients head is supported and is not moving. At the beginning, it might be of help to train with the zoom for getting the correct sharpness: prior to shooting, you may zoom for checking the sharpness and zoom back just before clicking on the «Camera» button. Taking several pictures in a same session will also be a good training.
Images In spite of the calibration procedure, image quality may slightly differ depending on the ambient light. If you feel your image is over exposed, recalibrate using this time the high value card. Make also a test after having slightly dimmed the light and/or closed the blinds. On the contrary if your image seems too dark, recalibrate using this time the low value card. Also, it is important to know that depending on the quality of your computer screen and the fact it is calibrated or not, the images may look different from when watched on the iPhone screen. When choosing a new computer screen, prefer a high quality product and also dont hesitate to ask a specialist for learning how to calibrate it.
