    SIX New Models of the KODAK NEUTRAL TEST CARD

    This item, highly valued by competent photographers around the world,
    was known heretofore as the "18 PERCENT GRAY CARD".

    In keeping with its policy of constantly updating its products, KODAK has
    now improved this valuable tool by introducing a digital version and by
    augmenting its reflectance quotient to 19%. Everyone knows what higher
    reflectance will do for your digital images.

    Features: - Higher reflectance (19%) tailored to CCD a well as CMOS
    sensors - Popular gray color; grey version available on special order -

    plastic sheath - Works with existing exposure meters - Solar-powered,
    requires no batteries or tripods - Same accurate results with both English
    and metric system cameras - For use with lenses of all types - zoom,
    macro, anamorphic, aspherical, telecentric, telephoto, oil immersion,
