The WhiBal White Balance G7 Studio Kit provides you with a reference point for acquiring accurate color temperature within a particular lighting scenario. Because color temperature varies under different lighting sources (i.e. sunlight, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent) it's important to use a white balance card for proper 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 white balance 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 and a hanger for placing the card upright on a wall or horizontal surface. Also included is a Tyvek sleeve for protecting the card in between uses.

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.

      This product does an outstanding job at white balance correction. I setup my Nikon D7000 to some really wacky white balance settings and shot a few test shots with the Whibal card in some to test out white balance correction and man what a great job this little card did. I even used auto white balance settings on camera and took test shots of card in pictures to compare the auto on camera and the cards white balance, and got better results with true color from the Whibal card. I use this in lightroom 3 with the white balance picker tool. Just click on card and that's it, then sync all your photos that were taken in the same lighting/place/setting. This is so easy, even a cave-women can do it. Glad I bought this, almost got the Xrite color checker passport at a much higher $$$. Save your money and get this.

      Porttrait and Studio work, Table top photography and other stationary objects. Great. However, Realstate photography has a very little benefit from it

        Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Studio Kit:

        I am a newborn photographer. I use mostly ambient, natural light in the clients house. With painted walls, etc. I sometimes have a color cast. I have used the WhiBal to set my white balance in camera. Works great. It is Durable and came with a little stand/hanger which helps me a lot as I have no assistant. If you follow your camera custom white balance instructions and the instructions for the WhiBal you should do okay. It is like any other gray card or white balance device to use. If the light changes or you change your position to the light, subject changes position to the light, you have to take another shot with the WhiBal in it.

          Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Studio 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.

            After some research over the internet, I decided to go with WhiBal. I found this device to be very important in removing color casts due to variations in color temperature in nature. I recommend the somewhat larger 'studio' (3.5 x 6 ) model for field use.

                A must for certain venues. Easy to use. Good size for Canon cameras since the whole frame does not have to be used. Use single point focus and off you go. Accurate.
                I would recommend WhiBal for WB Card.

                    Works very well with my Nikon DSLR, takes seconds to get an accurate custom white balance. It's small enough to fit in your pocket but big enough to fill the frame of most lenses. I wish I had one of these when I first got into digital photography. It is a must have accessory.I'm glad I didn't get the smaller one or bigger one however next time I would just buy the card and not bother with the kit that includes a neck strap, clip, and protective sleeve all of which are kinda finicky and not worth the extra $ in my opinion.

                      I purchased this specifically for my mobile product photography setup. Great portable size and durable construction. The added protection of the sleeve to hold the card is also appreciated. The card not only helps with white balance but also chromatic aberration. Perfect for photography with consistent lighting.

                        Very convenient to use and built to last. Material's reflectance is even across visible spectrum and drops off sharply in the UV so it doesn't bias the white balance.

                              I recently discovered the value of getting the color balance right BEFORE I start shooting. This white balance card does the trick. It's just the right size to fit in my camera bag, and even comes with a neck strap so you can keep it ready during a shoot. It's grey, but also white and black. And it's easy to handle and doesn't require batteries or assembly. Very nice to have.

                                  use it wether it's for post or pre white balancing. I use it to balance the white on my Canon 5d Mark ii.

                                  It is water resistant, solid (will not deteriorate for a long time!), big enough to see it well. It came with a metal clipping tool that makes it easy to hang or support the card on a flat surface.

                                  As of now, I cannot think of any bad thing about this product.

                                      Works as advertised. Not too large, and not too small. Works great, well constructed.

                                            Easy to fit in your camera bag but large enough for outdoor work. Hold it up at the start or end of your location shoot and you are in business for post processing as long as the light stays the same. The card is very solid and should last for many years.

                                            I'm taking picture of paintings and like to have the closest color as original. I used to work with customized WB function in the SLR and I found very annoying to focus on a white paper, which actually is never white. This card does the trick, it has a grid to focus. So easy !

                                            This product does an outstanding job at white balance correction. I setup my Nikon D7000 to some really wacky white balance settings and shot a few test shots with the Whibal card in some to test out white balance correction and man what a great job this little card did. I even used auto white balance settings on camera and took test shots of card in pictures to compare the auto on camera and the cards white balance, and got better results with true color from the Whibal card. I use this in lightroom 3 with the white balance picker tool. Just click on card and that's it, then sync all your photos that were taken in the same lighting/place/setting. This is so easy, even a cave-women can do it. Glad I bought this, almost got the Xrite color checker passport at a much higher $$$. Save your money and get this.

                                            Durable and convenient size to fit in a shirt or pants pocket. The plastic is durable enough to last and better than paper gray cards. Having a black and white reference on the card is also helpful.

                                              Comments about WhiBal White Balance G7 Studio Kit:

                                              We used this card for balance installation at shooting of minerals for the on-line shop. Great! Exact color. Processing wasn't required. We will always use.
