Why the author of sunPATH chose Carbonless Copies to create the Windows version:
"I am a professional cinematographer, working in Hollywood. I created the original sunPATH for my own use, but it soon became very popular with my colleagues. So during my "spare" time I redesigned and re-programmed sunPATH as a user-friendly, commercial application for the Macintosh, and priced it so that all working professionals (not just those with production expense accounts) could afford it.
As sunPATH's reputation spread I received an increasing number of requests for a PC version. I investigated having the software rewritten by a PC programmer, but most were not interested because of the limited user base (they all get royalties), and others just wanted too much money for me to be able to offer the PC version at a reasonable price.
Then I discovered Carbonless Copies from ARDI. With Carbonless Copies I was able to get a PC version of sunPATH to market quickly and easily, to offer it at the same price as the Mac version, and to retain the user-friendliness of the original. As a result my sales have grown, my customer base has expanded, and everyone's happy. Now what could be better than that?"
What users say about the Macintosh version of sunPATH:
"sunPATH ended a five year quest I've had to find a great
sun positioning program. Yours is the fourth program I've owned.
It is by far the best program for tracking the sun. Every aspect
of it is extremely well thought out and easy to use by my assistants
who usually have no experience with such programs."
What users say about the Windows version of sunPATH:
"sunPath enabled us to achieve all of our objectives.... I
have awaited the PC version of sunPATH eagerly, feeling disadvantaged
when travelling without it. A 'must have' for every serious photographer."
"...I'm switching to SunPATH today! The PC version was very
easy to use, location data was incredibly comprehensive and the
reports are second to none."
" At last!!!! This fantastic utility for PC owners.... sunPATH
integrates seamlessly with your PC environment."
"Thanks again for bringing sunPATH out in a Windows-usable
form. For any person in the Film or Still business who needs to
plan with the sun in mind, this is an inexpensive and indispensable
"The software was up and running quickly.... It all is very
straightforward and easy to use. Frankly, I don't know how I ever
did location photography without this!"
"All in all an A+ for the sunPATH."
