Does what it should...
on January 7, 2012
One real plus about these is that they are plastic, not laminated cardboard, so I expect to never need to replace them.
I have read some place where people pan the little cards as too small to get a good reading for white balance in the light they are working in. That suggests that they haven't ever used the click custom white balance available in a lot of photo editors. When you have your lighting set up (or have set up your shoot in outdoor lighting - in outdoor lighting you should probably take reference shots frequently as the light change) you either have someone hold the white balance card in a shot or put the white balance in the shot (i.e., product photography). Then when you go to post process you click on the card as the reference and auto correct your white balance. It doesn't have to be the size of a posterboard to accomplish that.
Pfeh - it's some plastic cards on a lanyard that could have been made from shoe laces. It works, it was affordable... that's all that matters for something like this.
