BTZS ExpoDev Program for PalmPilot : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

Has anyone tried the Phil Davis' ExpoDev Palm Pilot program? I've used the Casio version for a while and am considering upgrading. However, I'm curious as to what, if anything, I would gain.

I have not used the Palm Pilot version but have used the Casio version for more than 5 years. From what I have read, it looks like virtualy the same program. On the pro version I beleive that you can upload your development information, so that it will also give development times. I think the biggest advantage would be just using it in a Palm Pilot. I would assume that you can upload info from your Palm Pilot to a data base or word processor on your PC, I have never found the printer for the Casio so I have always done this by hand. The few people I know that have Palm Pilots seem to like them and they are smaller and lighter than the Casio. For me, I am staying with the Casio for now. I can't see spending around $520 for the computer and program, when I have the same capability right now.

I don't think Casio makes the computer any more so if someone is just starting out with the Phil Davis' program they have no choice except to go the Palm Pilot route. However, if you already have the Casio I don't see much point in paying the money to get basically the same thing in the Palm Pilot. Some day your Casio will break and you won't be able to get it fixed because of a lack of parts (at least that was the situation I encountered when one of the two Casios I own went on the blink and I took it to Radio Shack for repairs). At that point you'll have to switch to the Palm Pilot unless you can find a used Casio but personally I wouldn't switch until I had to.
