"The ExpoDisc I bought from you 8 months ago has become indispensable! It will be featured in my Photoshop 7.0 Interactive CD recordings on Digital Workflow produced by Dean Collins. It is absolutely neutral in it's attenuation of light."

"I just shot the biggest Wedding of my life. They bought all the JPEG files from me and ALL 2,387
of them had good color because of the ExpoDisc. I have done the FULL testing on
ALL the digital cameras on the market in the last 7 years, and in my opinion
your product needs to become part of EVERY photographers tool kit."
