The WhiBal White Balance G7 Pocket Kit comes with a white balance card that is small enough to fit in a wallet or shirt pocket. It also comes with a lanyard (cord) for wearing around the neck. This way you can be sure you'll always have it with you when you need it as opposed to leaving it somewhere in a drawer. Because color temperature varies under different lighting sources (i.e. sunlight, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent) it's important to use a white balance card for accurate color representation under any type of light.

WhiBal white balance cards are designed to be neutrally gray throughout their surface, are water and scratch proof, and are individually tested by an industrial spectrophotometer before they leave the factory. For it to work properly the card must be held at an angle where there's no reflection bouncing off of it. For this reason the card, which in itself is very low reflective, features a highly reflective sticker that shows the photographer at a glance whether the card is held properly.

To achieve maximum results it's best to shoot in RAW and then use a RAW conversion program such as Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom to adjust the picture. With a RAW conversion software you can also white balance at once a group of pictures taken under the same lighting conditions. Included in the kit are a stand for placing the card upright on a wall or horizontal surface. Also included is a Tyvek sleeve for protecting the card in between uses.

Fits in your shirt pocket (same size as an American business card) so you will actually use it rather than have it in your bag.
Waterproof and scratchproof material
Comes with convenient stand for ease of setup on tables or flat surfaces. No need for someone to hold the WhiBal.
Each card is individually measured with a precision spectrophotometer to certify that it meets or exceeds stringent specifications
The Gray card is designed for low reflectivity, except that the sticker is intentionally highly reflective so that maximum TrueBlack Blackpoint level may be achieved by observing for maximum glare point and then backing the angle down.
Can be used to set white balance reference, black point and white point.
Fits shirt pocket or can hang on studio hook or lanyard
Size 2.1 x 3.3" (53 x 84mm)

    I use the white balance card on my digital SLR camera -- love how it has both white and gray areas and the black & white square so I can easily focus.

    It is extremely lightweight, doesn't take up much room, and comes with a handy lanyard so you can wear it around your neck or connect it to a camera bag or strap.

    I wouldn't mind if it were just a wee bit bigger, but it does currently fit easily into a shirt pocket or wallet.

    This is my third Whibal pocket kit. I purchased the White Balance G7 Pocket Kit because I lost the the second "table stand" card from my White Balance G6 Pocket Kit during a wildlife photography hike. One of the downsides of the G5 and G6 was that it was easy to lose parts (e.g. the second card does not securely attach to the neck strap).

    I was very disappointed with the G7 kit, as it appears to be much more cheaply made compared to the G6 (but the price was about the same). The G6 card is more than twice as thick as the G7, and feels like it is built to last, while the G7 feels like it could easily be damaged.

    When I saw how the G7 kit uses an s-hook as the table stand, I drilled a couple holes in my G6 card so that I could use an s-hook that I happened to already have as its table stand. The one advantage to the G7 (and my jury-rigged G6) is that the s-hook can be securely attached to the neck strap, so it won't fall on the ground unnoticed while I hike. I've stored the G7 away in case my G6 wears out (fat chance).

        What can I say. It's small enough to always have on you. I leave my camera set in auto-wb, and simply snap a frame with this card, as I see the wb may be changing. In Lightroom, I point to the frame with the card, to pull a balance.

        Once less thing to think about on location!

          Used this product for the first time, and found it easy to work with. Having a referance White to work from I was able to determine what was the correct setting for the lighting conditions at the time. Taking "Raw" photo's made it easy to select the "White and Black" settings to know that my "Skin" colour was correct. This card worked well both with day light, and flash photo's. It was small light weight, and easy to clip to my camera strap using the table clip. Having the lanyard makes it easy to slip into a shirt pocket when not needed, so it is always with you.

              Putting this in one of the product shots in the studio and then clicking on the gray part of it in the image with the white balance dropper in Adobe Camera Raw immediately gave me the correct colors. This saved me a lot of time not having to mess around with all the sliders trying to guess the right colors. I didn't give it five stars because I thought it was a little too expensive.

                Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Pocket Kit:

                I use this card shooting raw all the time since I received it, and it produces incredibly neutral images that I can then adjust to taste, if desired. I thought the little stand would be more useful than it has turned out to be: putting it on a surface instead of just holding it in front of the camera can reflect light from the surface, which is sometimes desirable but often not.

                  Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Pocket Kit:

                  Very easy to use, just take a picture of it in the same lighting as what you're shooting. Then, in post processing, go to the image with the Whi-Bal card in it, and use it to set your white balance for the rest of the shots. If your lighting keeps changing, then just shoot another shot with it. The kit has a little s-clip carabiner that doubles as a stand in case you need to place it and step back.

                  The plastic cards are pretty durable, though you still need to exercise reasonable care with them. The neutral area is actually the card itself, rather than a sticker or paint. The black and white areas also help set your dynamic range.

                  Easy enough to slip one in your pocket, or in a pocket of your camera bag so you can have it on hand wherever you're shooting.

                            This was my first experience using a white balance card, and the WhiBal worked great. In my camera, the process was very easy to snap a picture of the card under the light being used, point the crosshairs to the card using the direction pad, hit Set, and you're good to go. Results were great.

                            I love this card! The built quality could be improved but it does the job perfectly.

                              To have all the benefits of this product, look at the WhiBal website, lots of useful information and videos to get the most out of your purchase. There is no user guide included, everything is explained on the website.

                              I like the pocket size, but if you plan to make your white balances from further away (more than 10 feet with regular lens), consider bigger than the pocket size.

                                  I am stunned on how easy it is to edit photos to show proper color with this compact grey card. I don't like heavy photoshoping of images, however I do like to play abit with contrast and sharpness. This is why I use this card. I like to start off with as close to perfect color as I can get.
                                  there are other grey cards in the market, but this came recommended by a couple of pro photographer friends. No regrets!

                                    This is a fantastic and simple tool. With the auto focus box in the corner of the card, it is so fast and easy to snap a shot of this perfect grey in a variety of situations. This is a must have for anyone shooting RAW files.

                                      To ensure spot on white balance on your digital camera this is a must. It travels lightly, can fit in your pocket, be worn as a lanyard (around the neck), in your camera bag... it even has a table stand so your hands are free to tweak camera settings with ease.

                                      Getting spot-on white balance is ensured with this WhiBal G7 Pocket Kit... a must for those natural and more beautiful photos.

                                        Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Pocket Kit:

                                        Very good gray card, although I find it a little pricey the small size, but it is very good quality.
                                        Works great and is small enough to get into your wallet.

                                        The back is not gray but some off-white with text.
