Digital Grey Kard Standard White Balance Card Set with Standard Lanyard (Set of Three Cards) from Digital Image Flow brings science to the art of digital color control. The White Balance Card Set is the user-friendly, economical, and indispensable color correction tool that belongs in every photographer's bag. Digital Grey Kard gives you perfect digital color every time.

To use this set of three cards - Black, White and Neutral Grey simply take a picture of the card in the same lighting your subject is (or was) in. Use auto white balance and P (Program) mode for the picture. You can either use the resulting picture as the basis for a custom white balance setting, or you can use the Digital Grey Kard picture during post processing for a custom white balance.

The glossy surface of the Cards will instantly reveal any reflections that may lead to incorrect white balance. If reflections are seen on the cards surface during a white balance operation, reposition the card so that reflections are eliminated.

Note! The DGK-1 has a Standard Lanyard whereas the DGK-2 has a Premium Lanyard with a detachable clip, which releases the cards from the teather.

    Works great for white balance, exposure check, white point & black point. Take a picture in raw and go. Small but big enough. Flexible plastic cards, colored through, waterproof, easy to clean. Should last a long time. Not a convenient lanyard. Spend a little more and get the Premium version. I changed it over to a lanyard like the Premium version.

    I ordered this product to replace a similar product that I had recently misplaced. I use this on practically every shoot I do to help with my white balancing. Product serves its purpose. However, I just wish the cards would have been a bit sturdier because the quality seems to be a bit flimsy.

    Too Small for Video

      Comments about DGK Color Tools Digital Grey Kard Standard White Balance Card Set with Standard Lanyard (Set of Three Cards):

      I got these for use with a Waveform Monitor on video shoots, which was a bad idea. They are too small to get an easy read or white-balance on set.

      They would do a fine job for people shooting in RAW, stills or video, who want to snap off a reference frame with the cards in shot for use in post-production grading. But when the exposure setting is more critical to achieve in-camera, a larger card is needed.

          They're a bit small, but nothing I could find was a good size, so these work well. I wish they were matte instead of slightly shiny, but again, they work well. For most jobs, I carry a larger X-rite grayscale card, but I needed something a bit smaller for a specific shoot. These fit the bill. If you're a commercial shooter, where color is extra critical, these probably shouldn't be your primary gray cards, but for all others, these work quite well.

                This set of cards works well. Not sure why I don't see more photographers using them as it is very easy way to take all the guess work out of getting accurate skin tones.

                  Sending this one back. The surfaces too reflective. Spend a little more and go with the Kodak grey card. You get white and 18%, and both 8x10 and 4x5.These ones are nice based on the size and having the lanyard, but need accurate exposure and can't trust it with the reflectivity.

                      Of the three cards, I've only used the grey card but it works like a grey card is supposed to. I took a photo of the grey card (simply holding it with one hand in front of the camera - the card wasn't even in focus) under the same light conditions as what I was shooting and used that image later in Lightroom to set the correct white balance using the white balance eye dropper. Worked perfect. The only complaint I have is that the string holding the cards to the lanyard detached the first day. I was lucky I didn't lose the cards!

                            To get the lighting right, you need to start with a proper white balance. These cards provide a compact way of getting that balance correct. Just point at the card and let your camera set its wb.

                                    Works pretty well. I tape these to the back of my clapboard and make sure I get a shot of it before taking slate and shooting a scene. In post production I use a three way color corrector to match the white, black, and midtones (18%gray). System is helpful especially since I don't have particularly advanced color correcting skills or equipment.

                                      They fit tucked in the flap of my neoprene camera cover or in my hip pocket. They scratch fairly easily but that's to be expected. I haven't found it to be a problem with their intended use. They've given very good white balance corrections.

                                        Small and easy to use. I've found this very useful with my Nikon P7000. There was always something off in the way it calculated white balance in some circumstances versus my D50. Use these cards in weird light and the problem is solved. Saves time in Photoshop as well. Great little buy.

                                        Easy to use, convenient size to put in your bag, Although a little small it makes up for that in the portability.

                                          I use it in indoor or challenging lighting environments. The shots with the grey kard don't even need to be in focus. Just get one shot with the card, and shoot away, as long as its in the same lighting conditions. In lightroom, it's a breeze to adjust the white balance with the Grey Kard (Look on Youtube if you don't know how)
                                          Another thing to note: It's actually pretty rugged. They feel solid and should last me a good amount of time. Great product!

                                              Was having difficulty with my color grading in post so I thought I'd give this a try. Seems to have helped with the few test shots I've tried!

                                                This is perfect for when you are on the go, or when you have a small bag and really can't carry around a larger gray card. Not really using the lanyard. I have them in a small pouch in my bag, but they are wallet size - can't get much more convenient than that...

                                                Great for indoors and outdoors. This is my first white balance tool so I wouldn't know if it's accurate, but for my needs it's accurate enough. Downfall is the size that's why I gave it 4 stars. I guess that's the reason they called it card set, but if you want something light and handy this will do the job.

                                                  Comments about DGK Color Tools Digital Grey Kard Standard White Balance Card Set with Standard Lanyard (Set of Three Cards):

                                                  A must have product to make sure you get an accurate white balance and exposure.
                                                  It is compact so you can take it anywhere for your everyday photography.
