Product Highlights
  • Quickly Set Your Camera White Balance
  • Works for Still and Video
  • Provides Accurate, Consistent Color
  • Calibrated and Certified for Neutrality
  • Use in Ambient, Studio or Mixed Light
  • Easy to Use, Durable, Compact

The ExpoDisc Neutral White Balance Filter allows digital photographers to quickly and easily set an accurate custom white balance.  Each ExpoDisc is individually assembled, calibrated and certified for neutrality in the visible spectrum, and for 18% light transmission.

The ExpoDisc can be used on-the-fly to set a white balance in-camera when shooting JPEG, or later in post production when shooting RAW. 

Using an ExpoDisc to set a custom white balance results in consistently balanced color and eliminates many of the yellow, red and blue color casts commonly seen in digital photography.

The ExpoDisc is easy to use.  Setting a white balance with the ExpoDisc eliminates many of the inconsistencies and inconveniences associated with using white balance cards and targets, including unwieldy size, unwanted reflectivity, improper angling, and shadows.

To set a white balance with an ExpoDisc, simply take a photograph of the light source (incident light) through the ExpoDisc, then follow your camera's instructions to set the camera's custom white balance.

Because the ExpoDisc is calibrated for an 18% light transmission, you can also use it as a reference tool for manually determining proper exposure.

The ExpoDisc is available in a variety of sizes to fit most popular lenses.  The ExpoDisc does not thread into the lens; instead, its quick mount design can be pushed-on and popped-off to facilitate a quick white balance.

ExpoDiscs do not screw in. They lack front threads and were designed to be pushed-on over the lens threads in order to facilitate a quick white balance.

          Wow.
          I am in no way a professional or semi pro photographer. I am someone who got thrust into photographing product for work. My photos always came out yellowish and I would spend serious time fixing this in photoshop.

          So hear I am looking for an easy solution to the problem and I have found one in this filter. Within 5 minute of reading the instructions I was taking amazing shots with my camera. Now my boss is happy and I am not nearly as worried about getting fired.

          Buy this!!!

          Comments about ExpoImaging ExpoDisc 52mm Digital White Balance Filter (Neutral):

          I have been using a white balance card and post editing (I still do for some shots), but this little gem saves a lot of time on most shots. It's fast, easy, and accurate. I still occasionally do some touchup in post, but it's a whole lot less when I set my camera's white balance before shooting. This was definitely a worthwhile investment.

            Comments about ExpoImaging ExpoDisc 52mm Digital White Balance Filter (Neutral):

            I use this with my DSLR and I shoot mainly video. My DSLR encodes with the AVCHD codec (h.264) which has a 4:2:0 color space. This color space is very flimsy and does not hold up well when color-correcting in post-production. Therefore it is very important to get the color balance correct in-camera. This white balance filter does the trick perfectly every time. No more worries! My only complaint is that the protective case provided is way too big for this 52mm disc and it's probably a one-size-fits-all deal meant to handle all sizes of the filter. Too bad because it doesn't fit in my tight camera bag.

                So far I have only used the expodisc for product photography, but it was easy to use and the results were excellent (I did watch a few how-to videos). Was uncertain if it would work well with studio lighting, but it worked fine using the built in flash to trigger strobes. Haven't found anything not to like!

                  This WB filter comes with excellent documentation. Very clear & concise guide to set up for use on my Nikon D90. A minor "con" - this ExpoDisk doesn't quite fit well over a UV filter I have on the lens. Only a very mnor issue as it's just a quick process to take the light measurement, then on to shooting. Clearly a useful item for your gear bag. Finally, the price is in the noise for the huge benefit you'll see.

                    We shoot high end jewelry in a light box and have always struggled with the white balance. In just seconds the ExpoDisc gave us near perfect colors. Our creative director raved that his photoshop time has been cut by two thirds. I think every serious shooter NEEDS and ExpoDisc in his bag.

The item is a little pricey for a beginner like me but its well worth the price once you see what it can do. White Balance is sometime hard to set and this filter takes all that frustration away. Wouldn't be without one now that I used it. :-)

                              Five minutes out of the box, I was able to apply a custom white balance adjustment to my Nikon D80. The ExpoDisc website includes a tutorial for many popular DSLRs. I would recommend you apply a new custom white balance adjustment upon changing lighting conditions (indoors to outdoors, sunlight to shade, etc.) throughout your photo shoot. Each filter is hand calibrated from the manufacturer. Easy to use.

                                  I will use this expodisc for my Airshows mostly. The weather changes quite a lot and I needed something fast and easy. I like shooting Buildings that are about to be torn down and archive them. I always look for the best shot and expodisc comes in very handy. Attaching the expodisc to my camera is a dream come true, using the bearings feature.

                                  The Expodisc is a fantastic item that helps you quickly set your custom white balance. It comes with a short video along with a reference manual on disc that helps you get up and running quickly. It is solidly built and easy to take along with your photo kit.

                                  I would recommend it to photographers of all skill levels.

                                    This filter is excellent for taking grey card/white balance readings all in one for when one is doing portrait work. It is a little more difficult for on-site work where there is no time to read the light from the subject's point-of-view in a quick-changing environment, such as sporting events.

                                    I was able to balance SODIUM VAPOR streetlight illumination! Pretty good trick, huh? That was obviously an extreme exercise, but the more subtle applications are where it really shines. Correcting color balance after-the-fact using Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro has never been much fun to me, and if you'll get it right in-camera, you'll have more to work with later. The only thing I'd change is to make the neck strap a little longer, but that's a minor point.

                                      I have such a hard time with white balance normally. Now that I've been using the ExpoDisc it's SOO much easier to get my color right! It makes such a difference and I don't have to edit colors on the computer anymore! Plus it's hard to get my 1 year old son to hold a gray card, so the ability to set the white balance myself is great!
