This is an invaluable tool for setting or correcting your white balance during a studio photo shoot or just messing around. The cards can be taken out and are the size of a credit card.

There are basically two ways to get your white balance perfect: set your camera to auto white balance, fill the frame with your grey card, and then set the custom white balance with the picture you just shot. The second way is done in post processing. Put the card in the frame on your first photo of the particular lighting condition, and then use the white balance dropper tool in Lightroom to get the proper white balance. You can then apply the same white balance to the rest of your pictures. The second method works better when shooting in raw. If you are shooting JPEG, the first method is better.

Does what it's supposed to do, how can you beat the price? The only drawback I can possibly point out is that the cards are all made of white plastic, which works great for the white one, but the gray and black cards are painted, so if you scratch them a little (as my kids already have), then you'll end up white scratch marks.

I bought these cards primarily for the gray neutral tone card. The cards seem very durable (the exact same size as a credit card, but almost twice as thick). The only part I wasn't crazy about is how thick the lanyard is -- it could have been a much thinner lanyard. I replaced mine with one that I had gotten from a trade show (or somewhere else), that also has a quick-release. The quick-release is nice, but I find it easier to just pull the entire lanyard out over my head.

I understand this can be used for both video and photography. I use if for photography, and here's why I think this is a must-have for anyone who takes photography a bit more serious...

Unlike the human eye, cameras don't automatically "neutralize" the to lighting in the environment. That's why cameras usually have those lighting mode options (incandescent, fluorescent, cloudy, etc.) -- it's to help the camera shift the color tone to try to neutralize the color cast from the light (e.g., fluorescent emits a greenish light, while incandescent emits a yellowish light). The "Auto" feature also just tries to guess at the color casting by trying to find something neutral in the image.

If you're an intermediate or advanced photographer, you'll probably want to shoot in RAW format because you can do A LOT more adjusting in post-processing. RAW images capture the light as the camera sees it, no processing added (so they often look even worse at first than JPEG images do). RAW requires that post-processing software make the adjustments to white balance, and so on. That's where this awesome little card comes in... The neutral gray card is used to tell the post-processing software what a neutral color looks like with the given lighting conditions.

So, how do you use it?

This card set with lanyard is perfect. The quick release clip makes it easy to use the White Balance Card on the fly. The cards are made of plastic and have a non-glare surface. The white card can get dirty but is easy to clean with a little soap and water. I highly recommend using this card set.

If you're on a budget these cards will do the job. My only advice is to keep these in a card holder of sorts as dirt will stick to these easily. Keep it clean and they will do the job.

I'm known for my short, no-nonsense but informative reviews, so here goes:

- they're hard plastic, so no worries about smudges, stains, spills, etc. Just run under water & wipe off. Nice touch.
- if you're shooting RAW, before the shoot (or whenever the lighting changes) just place one of the cards somewhere in the shot, pull it into lightroom, set the white balance point, auto-sync to all the rest of your photos from that session and you've got a balanced tone across ALL the photos
- for all your head shots, keep the lanyard around the model's neck so you get a clean WB every image
- easy and inexpensive. No need for the more expensive cards. Plus, many of the far-more-expensive ones are cardboard (subject to stains), or TINY (not enough room to get an exact neutral point in LR5).

This is not a white balance card, it is a yellow balance card. When compared to the white balance portion Color Checker Passport this problem become very clear. Yuck, what a waste of money and time.

such a useful tool if you want to white balance.
i used this on a canon t2i.
Note: set lens to manual foccus
at the lighting condition where you are to shoot, hold the grey card, fill the picture frame in you camer with the grey card.
use this picture to set the custom white balance in your camera.
there is a you tube video which explained how to do this on a cannon dslr.
the actual picture after the custom white balance using the grey card was fantastic.
pretty simple to use and definitley a handy tool that will help make quality pictures.
