It is imperative that you get a shot of the card in exactly the same lighting conditions as the picture you want to adjust in post-processing. This can be a challenge if you're outside with your kids and you're poking in and out of buildings and the trees are casting deep shadows in an otherwise sunny day. You'd potentially have to get many card exposures for all the various light settings you encounter throughout the day. The immediate surroundings have a large effect, as well. Take the same sunny conditions, and pictures on a grass field will have a different tint than ones taken on parking lot or on a brick road.
I also noticed that chromatic noise skewed my post-processing attempts when I used my software's water-dropper tool. If I happened to pick a pixel that was actually a blurp of chromatic noise, then the WB got terribly skewed. So, I'd either have arbitrarily pick a pixel that looked grey to me or smooth the results with chromatic noise reduction. Best results are had with well-exposed, low-ISO pictures where the card shows up as a uniform, solid grey with as little noise as possible.
Though with the caveats above, I highly recommend this card. It's easy to carry and is a better WB solution than relying on in-camera settings or eyeballing it in post-processing (which works, too, if you can get the hang of it). Remember to constantly take shots of the card and using the lowest ISO and you should get accurate results in post-processing.
WhiBal is a lovely product. It is what it is: a white balance reference card. It fits well into my pocket and I actually use it whenever there is a change in the lighting condition. As seen from the link below, I took it for a night time photo session with my wife and there was a lot of tricky colors from the light. With WhiBal, I get a nice skin tone for my shots. And notice the white color of my wife's dress too. To apply white balancing to my photos using the reference shots is very fast. It adds much efficiency to my photo development effort.
For those we are into the scientific side of WhiBal, I actually did a histogram analysis. Even with my Nikon D700, there is still imperfection in the auto-white balancing by observing the histogram by primary colors (image cropped to contain just the white balance reference card). Does WhiBal get it right 100% of the time? Most of the time, all the primary colors are collapsed nicely onto each other on the gray surface. I guess at some situations especially if there are multiple color tones of light that fall onto the card, you may need to take a few measurements from the WhiBal image to get it right. Rarely do I need to do that. But it is still much better than guessing the color temperature and tint. Is WhiBal as "destructable" as it is advertised?Read more ›
