    Gray Card

    I am an online college student for digital photography and I was required to have a gray card. I actually have not even used it for class yet, come to think of it. It comes with the 3 different color cards and a lanyard, it looks nice and came in the mail pretty quickly. I think as long as it meters the camera right, it was worth it. It is cheap too. One of the cheapest equipment in the photography field

    I ran across this set by accident, and immediately picked it up. I had always carried a blank piece of white paper with me for white balancing. Not convenient in all cases. But this set of cards has solved that and allows me to easily carry a white balance card where ever I am without getting folded, creased or in the way. I switch between wearing them around my neck with the lanyard, and attaching them to a carabiner on my belt. Both are good solution.

    It’s hard to get excited about a gray card, but this kit is a great deal if you are a photographer who needs and knows how to use these cards. The quality is good and the three cards = white, black, and gray - work just fine. This isn’t something most people will use, but for us old school photographers it is a good addition to the kit.

    These white balance cards do the job. They are ok, I just wish they were larger, so they could fill a wider frame, but they are good none the less. You could use paper for white balance and lens cap for black balance, and it would do just as well as these, however getting dead on 50% grey is a difficult thing to do by eye, so while I'm not blown away by these cards, it is necessary if you are planning on using the grey card.

    White Balance Cards

    I am concerned about getting a good white/grey balance so I picked these cards up. The procedures for creating your own white balance profiles on the Nikon D5000 are not that complicated, but it does take time to figure it all out. I am still learning but it is fun.

    non standard gray card

    The included gray card look a little off to me based on my memory of Kodak 18% gray cards. I tested it with a spot meter, comparing it against a Calibr8 chip chart gray patch, sure enough, it reflects approximately 1.5 stops more light than it should.

    The Grey card is not photography quality, which in photography you would use one that’s 18% grey matte finish & not glossy/shine. Go with Delta Grey cards, those are 18% grey. As for the other cards, I didn’t use. The dark blue is used in media.

    The 3 cards are very sturdy and can travel easily in your camera bag. Having 3 colors to choose from makes it good for any type of light. I like the size of these cards because they show up well even when using a long lens. Great buy for this price!

    Right size to carry in each camera bag. The gray card helps set the correct exposure. White cared helpful for setting custom white balance and as small reflector. The black card can shade llens from glare or as a background for a small object.

    These gray cards (actually white, gray, and black) are well made. It's good to have the 3 together so you can use in any situation. They are large enough to see easily in your shot, but small enough to easily fit in your camera bag.

    Serves the purpose. Haven't got a chance to use a lot. Fits in a corner of my bag.. might get scratched over period if you leave in the bag with rough objects. works well with Adobe Bridge for color corrections/WB !

    This is great product and satisfies my need. just that now I feel, I could have gone for a bigger size gray card. It would little easier to manage. However this one is extremely portable and fits in my bag well.

    Easy to carry in camera bad and use. The 18% grey card is useful to confirm proper exposure. The black-card can be used to shade lens and as background for small prop. The white card can help set white balance.

    I don't feel I can review this product because I have not yet used it. I've seen gray cards in other stores and online and this looks very comparable but again I haven't used it.

    It's a good product. I don't know what to really say about this item besides it's kind small but works well. Wish it came with a color spectrum side but whatever. I'm happy with it.

    There isn't much to this, but it's definitely needed to perform proper pictures in tough lighting environments. Don't trust your presets... Use this!
