Product Description

The perfect compromise between the 14 Pocket Target and the Original 34 Target. It folds to just 10 to fit easily into any camera case and features a highly efficient, white reflective fabric on the backside. The 24 Target is popular with many location photographers for events, sports and portraits due to its convenient size. Neutral 3-Tone Panels allow for custom white balancing, accurate metering and exposure monitoring through the camera's histogram function all with a single shot. Vastly improves setup time over the original design, minimizing the need for post correction to your image files. Drastically reduce your work on the back-end by getting it right on the front-end. By using the Digital Calibration Target, you can achieve perfect exposures and white balance every time. The Targets, on collapsible reflector style frames fold to one-third of their open size to fit easilty into most camera bags.

I had seen targets before, and gray cards, but never realized the full impact they can have on improving the quality of photo you can produce. I ran into trouble on a senior shoot in the fall, with a brick wall and yellow leaves throwing the light into a total wreck for white balance.. and I fiddled for an hour before I got the skin tones acceptable and still wasn't happy. This is a way to get it right, out of the gate, and not have to do post processing on it.

The three zones add an important part to the color balance function.. exposure. set exposure first, finding where the spikes are in the histogram, then take a picture for color balance and Bingo! you've got it right and no post processing worries!

For exposure, most of the time, you let the camera do it and it is total guess work.. the camera screen really can't be used to know if you are exposing correctly, and histograms can be misleading depending on the colors in the photo. This way, you know your light conditions, know where those spikes should be on the histogram.

The DVD included is part of the price, and well worth it, showing examples on where you should be looking for those exposure spikes on the histogram

I am so glad I purchased this product, both for the information on exposure and white balance. I'm not trying to guess anymore, I know where that white should be in the histogram, so I know I am getting the correct exposure. The color balance is amazing, indoors in particular when you have mixed lighting.

And, if you think about it.. you can use the color balance/exposure and not be as worried about monitor calibration.. you get it right, in the camera, so unless you go playing with it in photo shop, you should be in the good zone for beautiful prints.

I love this product. It has already paid for itself in terms of saving me time trying to get my white balance correct. I would definitely recommend it. Love the target in the center of the gray area as trying to focus on other gray cards was difficult.

and it worked great. I use wide angle and fisheye lenses, so I recommend using the 24" target to fill the frame.

If you really want to nail your exposure, every time, this is a great tool. It can also be used for setting a custom white balance, either in camera or in post-processing. Highly recommended for serious photographers.

Anyone looking to buy this product has to be thinking, "how can this be so expensive?" It's a perfectly fair question, especially when you see so many wonderfully-affordable knock-off brands in the photography space. After all, it is just a foldable three-colored piece of fabric and a DVD. I guess you're paying for the DVD.

Pricing concerns aside, this is an excellent product. I can use the lighting histogram now with confidence (often even without the target, though it's better with), something I couldn't do before I watched the video and bought the target.

I would like to own more sizes of the target, but I'm having trouble justifying paying for intellectual property that I already own.

At a lower price, this is a five-star product. As it stands, four stars.
