Rereading the thread I started on reciprocity of available sheet films, I started thinking about using a calculator for other purposes related to photography. For instance, after calculating reciprocity failure, one could then run a count-down timer to time the exposure. Another use might be to calculate f-stop timing intervals from a spreadsheet or matrix of pre-existing numbers. Say enter 6 seconds at the minimum time and 12 as the end time, with 1/4 stop intervals, produces a list; 1.9, 1.6, 1.4, 1.1, 6. etc.
Would those with more experience in using programmable calculators care to comment on these thoughts?
