ASIAIR only capture the raw image when capturing
but it can save the preview image to your phone when you click save button

Hi - just to clarify - I'm using a 183C and still saving the preview file which is FIT - is Black/ White ? should this be - I don't see any manuals explaining or options to change the file format or enabling the colour which appears on the tablet to save into the FIT.

The FIT file will appear B/W, you need to debayer the image to reveal the colour. There are a number of options to do that but it depends on whether you have a single image or a batch and the depth of you pockets i.e. some are free, others will make a dent in your bank balance.
