Are you like me and sometimes the color balance on your digital files is just a little off? So check out the ExpoDisc! The ExpoDisc is the easy to use custom white balance solution that helps you get a correct color balance every time. The ExpoDisc neutral diffusion filter that gathers ambient light and passively transmits 18% of it through to your camera's light meter, effectively producing a 'gray frame'. You then set a custom white balance using the 'gray frame' that results in accurate color in most lighting conditions. Check out or give us a call for pricing info.
