Re: Phototainer - Can it do Canon RAW?


Can you say Pocket PC?

In comparison to the dedicated devices a Pocket PC plus all needed accessories is a really expensive alternative. I thought about this for a while myself but cancelled it. In addition I do not need a Pocket PC for any other tasks.

If you already own a latest generation Pocket PC the add ons cost might be worth a view, but not in my personal case. I decided to buy a JVC mini notebook which was not much more but I can use all the usual PC software without compromising.

I have a Dell Axim, and PocketLoupe software
installed on it. It can support RAW files and display them in about
3-4 seconds. (not bad for a 7 meg file from my camera) Thumbs load
as fast as you can press the buttons. A RATCO host card allows me
hook the PDA up to my digital wallet and handle any editing, copy,
paste, delete, move, etc.

Hmmm, so you use a Pocket PC + a portable storage device... The pocket PC only to view NEF's...? Can not imagine this number of gadgets are really comfortable to use in the field, with all the adapters and cables...

Possibly it would be better if camera manufacturers would support an USB port to master an external storage device...
