Using the camera with the Petit Soft series developed by Shodensha (Windows)


The available software is multipurpose yet costly…
Although it is multifunctional, it does not make use of all of its features…
Therefore! I wish I could make a reasonable cost for it!
Petit software with a single function is suggested.
We also accept custom software for small businesses.
