photographers creative control over their depth-of-field. The ExpoAperture2

The ExpoAperture Depth-of-Field Guide is printed front and back on three tough
circular plastic discs that rotate against one another, functioning as a compact
mechanical calculator. The Guide's ease of use makes this a perfect tool
for new photographers, helping them to determine the best aperture to achieve
a desired depth-of-field.



The ExpoAperture Depth-of-Field Guide is intended for the educational, hobbyist
and professional markets. The ExpoAperture Depth-of-Field Guide is compatible
with all film and digital SLR cameras and includes a Quick Start guide, instructional
CD, Camera Sensor Reference Chart, and a handy storage pouch.
