    BTZS Plotter, worth the money?

    Hey folks,
    I've been doing some film testing at home recently and I keep wondering about whether or not the BTZS Plotter program is worth the $129.99 that The View Camera Store wants for it?

    I'm a computer geek by vocation and only a photographer by avocation so I may have a skewed idea of software valuation, but... Just reading the description of what the program does, it seems like it should be priced at somewhere around 1/3 of where it is. Can some of you who have bought it weigh in on whether you feel like you got your money's worth?

    Thanks,
    Dean

    Look at the BTZS light product. It may be more inline to what you want.

    I have the plotter, and I think it's a great product. The software itself is simple. It's the data that it provides that makes it worth the money.

    Technology is not a panacea. It alone will not move your art forward. Only through developing your own aesthetic - free from the tools that create it - can you find new dimension to your work.

    Purchase the plotter program and Expo Dev at the same time and Dennis will sell them for $99 each.

    P.S. And IMO, they are both worth the money.
