    Using a digital gray card can really help when setting custom white balance and getting it closer to right in-camera. This particular one is best for digital photography. I like the size: not too big and not too small. Fits in my camera bag but is still big enough to easily fill the frame when using it.

    I find that when I use this outside, especially in shaded settings, it produces images that are slightly warmer than I'd like, but that's an easy fix in post. I still like it!

    Using this card to white balance for professional video yielded a white balance with a small but definite greenish cast. Not planning on using this anymore and would not recommend it.

    Waterproof and sturdy option

    By TomV

    from USA

    Comments about DGK Color Tools Digital Grey Kard - Event White Balance Card with Premium Lanyard:

    I purchased this card because of its waterproof properties and general sturdiness. Cardboard models just wouldn't last long in the field with me. It's the perfect size to match the DGK waterproof color chart.

    Comments about DGK Color Tools Digital Grey Kard - Event White Balance Card with Premium Lanyard:

    This grey card worked well for metering my exposures on my film camera. It is durable and waterproof. The size isn't too big and not too small either. A bit on the expensive side, in my opinion but works well.

              The camera knows the color tempurture of the light because you show it the benchmark.

              In film days you chose film according to the light source, daylight, tungsten.

              Today Auto White Balence is like shooting on automatic. Yeah, you're in the ballpark, but you can easily do better.

              Get one, be better.

                  This card is a reliable neutral patch for tagging RAW files, and the 5x7 size is large enough to be used as a preset target with normal to telephoto lenses. The product is simply a quality-controlled plastic panel and it should give a long service life if given reasonable care. A very effective means to assure white balance control in original camera files.

                            This card is fine for white balancing your camera. Its gray is significantly lighter than 18% middle gray and is therefore useless for setting exposure. That's a shame as having a sturdy, washable true gray card would be very useful. (The standard cardboard ones become dirty and damaged.) Sloppy design.

                              It's durable, convenient, and accurate, perfect for those who are on the go.

                                Using a digital gray card can really help when setting custom white balance and getting it closer to right in-camera. This particular one is best for digital photography. I like the size: not too big and not too small. Fits in my camera bag but is still big enough to easily fill the frame when using it.

                                I find that when I use this outside, especially in shaded settings, it produces images that are slightly warmer than I'd like, but that's an easy fix in post. I still like it!

                                  Use this to balance product shots in a small studio. Works great

                                      I'm currently using this card for art reproduction. The card is thick enough so that it doesn't bend and seems like it'll last a long time. I would highly recommend this product for those that need a reasonably sized gray card.

                                        I use this as a backup for my camera's built in exposure meter. Sometimes my camera is taking too much of the outlying areas into consideration.

                                          Necessary for excellent white balance. This card hangs around your neck and detaches easily to meter on.
