This item is essential for any digital photographer, by using

the cards in one shot I can batch process the levels in Photoshop

and get perfect color that is uniform. This saves me a lot of post processing time,I recommend this item as highly as I can,compact,light,affordable,and it works perfectly....what more can

Great product! My Rebel XT's white balance works well outdoors but using this the camera sets a much better balance for indoor / tungsten lighting. The colors are much truer - without the yellow cast. They're small enough to put in any case. You can't go wrong for the money!

I bought these cards hoping I could use them like a traditional gray card in the field, i.e., to get a proper exposure reading. Unfortunately, they don't work that way, or at least this size card does not. Instead, I found out you are supposed to include them in a shot, lit as your subject would be, and then shoot the remainder of your session without them. Then, in post processing (with Photoshop or whatever software you use), you use the white balance tool and your initial shot to set the color balance for all the pictures in that session. In this way the product works like a charm. However, if you are shooting landscapes, a card this size would end up so small in the frame (especially if you are using a wide angle lens), it's not likely you could use it as intended. The solution is, of course, to buy the larger model, which is, of course, significantly more expensive. I ended up tossing these into my bag, knowing that if I ever shoot portraits, I'll be able to set the proper exposure later. I have gone back to my good old gray card, which, BTW, can be used just as this product is intended well and costs far less.

These cards are very nice but too small.
I only need the gray card, I use the gray card mainly for the white balance and very rarely for exposure. In order to get it right, I need to come very close to the card especially when I use wide lens.

And then being that close, my big beloved Canon 7D blocks the light partially from the card. I have to put them in special angles to be able to get the right lighting on it!!!

Do yourself a favor and find another big gray card. You will only need the gray card. Even for white balance, gray cards are more accurate than white cards.

I hope this helps

Still testing but of the few batches of photos I've processed this seems to be just the ticket for balancing color in my photos. All testing has been done indoors with mixed lighting. I seem to get a slight red/magenta push - but just on the photo with the card. The remainder of the batch that are processed based on the card photo's neutral point all improve over the originals. Wierd.

Every digital photographer that does post processing needs something like this. These cards, with their PVC construction and small size, are pretty much perfect for the daily camera bag.

BTW, I use DXO 4.0 to set the white balance neutral point in batch processing mode.

Digital Image Flow DGK Color Tools, Standard White Balance Card Set with Standard Lanyard (Set of Three Cards) My biggest disappointment was the gray card. I expected an 18% (or "middle") gray but what I received was much lighter. When I attempted to color balance an image in post-production by clicking on the gray card the image was far from accurate. Also, the black card was hardly black enough. Clicking on it will rendered most of my darks a deep black. Too contrasty for me. Finally, when I received the product the lanyard was NOT attached. I had to take the time before the shoot to figure out how to thread the darn thing. My recommendation is don't waste your money on this fancy product unless you intend to shoot in the rain where the plastic will be a benefit. Otherwise, just buy a simple 18% gray card (which I also had on the shoot and saved my "bacon!")

One black, one white, one 18% gray. All three are about the size of a credit card. Comes with a neckstrap. I'm not sure how this product could be improved. The set is perfect for setting white balance and exposure with one test shot, and small enough that it isn't a major request to ask your subject to hold it up while you take a shot.

The "user's guide" actually had some helpful tips. Like walk through your venue prior to a shoot and take quick test shots with the cards in frame as you walk through the different lighting conditions of the various areas you intend to shoot in. This way you get your WB test shots out of the way early and the files are all right next to each other on your memory card, easily organized. This would be ideal for weddings, for example.

The shipping was really fast! I placed my order on Sunday, got it today (Thursday).

Just received it 2 days ago. As long as one knows how to setup custom white balance on their DSLR, one will get more accurate white balance on their pictures. I have tested the preset white balance in my camera and compared it to the custom white balance I just created. The result is that by using Digital Grey Kard, I am getting more accurate color than using the preset setting in my camera. Now I am getting better picture without worrying too much about color tempeture being off. The whole process is painless and I highly recommend this product.
