The basic functions are live image preview on the monitor screen, photo recording, movie recording and time trigger (record within a specified time interval). You can save images to a disc or send via e-mail. Available settings allow you to change the resolution and control some of the image parameters, eg brightness, contrast.
Below are the most important functions of the Delta Optical Smart Analysis 1.0 software:
• text: allows you to put text on the image
• line: draws lines, allows you to measure the length
• circle (by radius): draws a circle with a selected radius, allows you to measure the surface of the circle
• circle (by diameter): draws a circle with the selected diameter, allows you to measure the surface of the circle
• circle (from three points): draws a circle by passing it through 3 points, allows you to measure the surface
• rectangle: draws a rectangle, lets you measure the area of ••the selected rectangle
• Angle: allows you to plot the angle, allows you to measure the angle in degrees
• polygon: draws a polygon, allows you to measure the surface of a created figure
• angle between lines: lets you measure an angle between any two lines that do not have to be connected
• rotation: rotating the image every 90 degrees in both directions
• calibration: allows you to calibrate the measurement using a 1 mm scale
A microscope designed for teachers, pupils, students, parents, collectors and for anyone who wants to research objects, jewelery, documents, money, insects, minerals or paleontological specimens, stains on clothing or carpet, in a word, everything what a microscope can be used for.

The possibility of inserting the current date and time of recording (automatically) to the image being recorded is very useful in professional documentation.
Due to the high quality of the image obtained and a wide range of image adjustment, the Delta Optical Smart microscope is used not only in school and individual laboratories but also by research institutes and universities.
It can be particularly useful for quality control of solder on printed circuit boards and analysis of precision products, testing of various work surfaces or products, and as a helpful reading tool for visually impaired people. You can copy the frames of old movies, eg 8 and super 8, the focus will depend on the quality of the output material.
