    Satinsnow glass comments (again!)

    I appreciate that this has been mentioned before and that almost everyone is aware of Satinsnow ground glass ... BUT ... I just received my order (to the UK) - and I am very pleasantly surprised by the product! Even the packaging is impressive/professional and smacks of a quality product! A superb fit too with no rough edges! The improvement itself is difficult to describe but the image on it is much "smoother" and a big improvement on the original! I can heartily recommend dealing with Dave wherever you are located on the planet! Superb service and my only regret is that I didn't order 2!! BTW Dave, double your price!! Still be worth every penny/cent!

    I recently received SatinSnow screens for two cameras, and see a marked improvement in edge to edge focussing. The one for 4X5 Shen-Hao fit perfectly. The 8X10 Grover was too tight in corners but that may have been due to my restoring it with several layers of varnish. Scraped the corners, and a bit tight but fine.
    Highly recommend the product; but, as said above, suggest they raise their price to reflect its true value.

    I've got a better idea, I propose that all other photographic suppliers bring their prices down, in line with Satin Snow. Yeah, that's the ticket

    Seriously, The SSGG is a great product at a great price.
    That is called grain. It is supposed to be there.

    I agree that the Satin Snow GG is a great product at a great price, but don't monkey with success. As an example look at what happened to E-Bay when the company raised their prices. The stock price went into the toilet. NO NO raising the price would be a bad idea. Did I convince anybody? My wife's pet name for me is CHEAP!

    Well everybody,

    Don't worry, Satin Snow prices are pretty well set, I even had someone tell me today, I was too expensive....go figure! LOL

    We founded our company on the ideal that photography does not have to be an elite pastime or job, so for the forseeable future, we will continue to maintain the price structure we currently have!

    Thanks for all the support! you guys and gals are what photography is all about, Keep shooting and enjoying photography!

    All of these glowing reviews are starting to get to me. I'm going to have to place an order in the next couple of weeks.
