New apps and games
You may use the application to control digital cameras remotely. It uses PTP/IP for that and support depends on whether the digital camera supports it as well. The camera requires Wi-Fi capabilities on top of that.
Control the camera's exposure parameters and shutter, and download photos directly to the Windows device the app is run on.
Digital Colorimeter displays the color of the pixel that you hover the mouse cursor over in its interface.
Use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl-Z to lock a color and Ctrl-C to copy it.
Digital Colorimeter comes with a built-in convert tool to convert between different color formats such as RGB, CMYK or HSV.
The Pro version of the app unlocks favorites to save colors to, average color generation and more.

It is easy to use but relatively limited when it comes to the preferences and options it supports.
