I use this product all the time! If your not sure what it does, it corrects the white balance in your camara. i use a Digital SLR and before i had this card my whites were off. This is one of the best investments you can make for your camara.

Here is how you use it:
take a picture of the card (fill as much of the frame as you can).
set the white balance to custom
select the picture as the white balance and viola you have white, white. it truly is to simple to explain.

i rated it 4 stars because when they shipped it it crinkled one of the corners a little bit.

but other then that the card is fantastic.

when you buy one make sure you keep it handy, because you'll use it all the time.

Remember you want to make the picture as right as you can in the camara then hit the post processing for touch ups.

The card is good - nice color, seemingly durable. I purchase the smaller size to avoid creases when in my pocket or bag, (which it works perfect for), but the size is also problematic. Using certain lenses (mostly wide angles) with the card, trying to fill the frame with the card can cause shadows from the lens on the card, changing the proper lighting. This is an easy fix as in most custom white balance settings you can zoom in on the appropriate spot and get a fix this way. All in all, it's a nice size, but I would buy a bigger grey card, and cut it to the desired size.

    Very good! Exactly what I wanted. So nice I bought two--one for me and one for my daughter, who is a graphic artist and designer, and does some commercial photography for her work.

      I am still very new to photography but this cheap and very useful Grey card has been an amazing purchase, and teaches those who buy it improved white balance along side being ultra portable.

                This cheap little card helps tremendeously in quick color correction. We've used it successfully in Adobe PS and Lightroom, as well as in Apple's iPhoto.

                          So nice to have this small card to set the temperature without a problem. It is small enough to carry around and pull out once the lighting changes.

                          I found this card to be very useful and accurate in getting the correct exposure. However, the card is made of thin cardboard and if gotten wet will fall apart.

                                      I really like this card because it is a little bigger then my 2x3 and still fits in my bag nicely.

                                      Sometimes it was hard to fill the frame with my 2x3. This one does the trick.

                                                It does a good job at a low price. Small enough to fit in the bag, strong enough to last long enough so you get for your money and more.
