Company also celebrates successful start at the market and produced 2000th square filter after startup at May 2012.
Company CEO says “As a new brand of camera filters we are happy for customer’s interest in our company and products. Photographic market shows us that there is still need for high quality camera filters for very reasonable price and many photographers including amateurs understand that digital software can’t emulate graduated filters in good quality with realistic, natural effect. During relatively short time 2000th filter was produced and more than 3 years of hard work and development of our team was rewarded”
“Thanks to new production technologies and market position/labor costs we could prepare filters of highest quality for very reasonable price, made from original organic glass CR-39 (patented from U.S.A. instead of using unoriginal, cheap “easy scratch” Chinese equivalent like few other producers) and Class-A optical pigments from United Kingdom, used in ophthalmic market. During development our main aim was produce filter with better scratch resistance, optical quality and neutrality of ND filters on the market for price available for every photographer. These features of our products were appreciated by growing of sales and also by golden medal – tip of ephoto.sk – biggest Slovakian photographic portal in review: http://www.ephoto.sk/fototechnika/recenzie/blesky-a-ine/filtre-845mm-alebo-celkovo-o-zasuvnych-filtroch-v-praxi/ “
