    I've had the chance to have a quick play with the unit; using the 'front camera' exposure settings and the updated Immersive software.

    The results are better but it's still awkward previewing from the unit in bright conditions, (I have made a request in the appropriate section).

    Here's 2 images taken with 3 HDR, processed:

    1. with immersive: no options checked, then tweaked (mainly added brightness and a hint of shadow) in PS.

    2. with immersive: all 3 options checked.

    3. with immersive; as is (sharpness / contrast).

    It appears I can only upload a single image, so this is option 3...Andy I'll email the others.

    Not sure if already noticed by someone else. When you process images on Immersive Studio all data from EXIF is lost on the resultant JPEG. So, taken date and time, camera, lens and GPS (when available) gets lost on the resultant JPEG.

    Add sliders for adjusting amount of Sharpening, Contrast and Saturation.

    Vincen, please now switch to using the latest full release here:

    Also, please check you have the correct iSTAR template installed on the PC for your unit as that's the reason for the crash in Windows XP.

    It looks like I have already the latest release but I don't have the iStar template :( Perhaps I misplaced it but I don't remember having received it :( Would you so be kind to send it to me again ?
