  • Spectrally Neutral

To get the best from your digital camera, use a gray card to accurately set white balance. WhiBal's G7 White Balance Pocket Card is an extremely accurate, convenient gray card that fits in a shirt pocket, and can be used in any shooting situation. It can also be used to set neutral White and Black reference areas for setting dynamic range in digital capture using the Black and White Eyedroppers available within Lightroom and other RAW conversion software, Photoshop and most other editing software.

By photographing a gray card reference for each lighting situation, you'll be able to achieve a proper white balance for all of your pictures. The gray card reference picture can be used with software to balance the color casts that various lighting conditions produce with all digital cameras.

Spectrally neutral--reflects all colors through the spectrum equally. The G7 Reference Card has both *a and *b Lab channel values of less than 1 at D50 and are spectrally "flat". It's spec'd at less than +/- 0.5.
Maintains its spectral neutrality under all reasonable temperature and environmental conditions.
Rugged--waterproof and scratchproof (color goes all the way through, not just a coating on top).
Does not respond to UV light any differently than the visible spectrum.
Each card is individually measured with a precision spectrophotometer to certify that it meets or exceeds stringent specifications.
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.
Can be used to set white balance reference, Black point and White point.
Dimensions 2 x 3.5" (5 x 8.9 cm)

      I had never used a grey card before, and to be honest, I had no idea what it was that it even did! Now that I have used my G7 White Balance card, I will probably never go back to taking photos without it. I'm mainly a portrait photographer, but I have been having to take photos of other things for the current photography class that I am in. I had to buy the grey card for the class, and I absolutely love it. It takes off hours of editing on all the pictures that I have taken, and I couldn't be happier with the ease and the results this product has given me. Grey cards help find the perfect lighting for the conditions you're in, and this grey card is super simple and easy to use. It can fit in your pocket, or you can put it on a lanyard for easy access. I would definitely recommend this to other users.

      A proper white balance can indeed be attained by using this card, but it is too small to be handy. I also bought White Balance G7 Studio Kit and found myself using the latter card almost always. I am going to get rid of G7 White Balance Pocket Card by making it a present to one of my friends. But I want to reiterate that this small card in principle does the job it was designed for.

                While I have a color checker passport for profile generation and white balance, I leave it behind too often. With this in my wallet I'm covered. White balance closely agrees with neutral on the passport.

                            I have been wanting a small card I could tuck in my wallet. Now it's always with me! I believe it is a critical tool for all photography types. Haveing a good neutral starting reference point in post processing is critical. I have used this for portraits, landscapes, and product photography. Cheap way to have a certified neutral card that easly tucks into a wallet or camera bag. There is a focus target though not necessary. Also a white and black sample for use with ps levels.you can spot meter off this card for an in camera custom white balance setting. Cheap enough to purchase 2.

                              Not much to say here...it's a white balance card. It is nice and small and fits right into the front of my camera bag. I've been wanting one for a while and finally went ahead and ordered it. It is made out of a sturdy piece of plastic, so it should hold up just fine.

                                  It's small and portable. Fits in a wallet. Never a reason not to have it with you. It's not cheap but not too expensive either. It's one of the items every photographer should have with them.

                                      Heard about this product after taking a semester course. The instructor often used this product as an example to easily correct white balance. I use this product at the beginning of any shoot by simply having someone hold it or hold it out with my hand and snap a picture. Once the pictures are uploaded into photoshop you can grab the whitebalance eyedropper and click right on the card. Add this effect to all of your pictures and you are done. No setting in your camera has to be set. Keep it on auto whitebalance and do the adjustment in post production.

                                        Never realized how easy it is to set up a custom white balance, no more going back to auto. I love how compact the G7 is, takes up the same space as a credit card. The only draw back I found thus far is the same as what I like about it. If you are shooting with a fixed focus lens from a distance the small card might be a little hard to focus onto or spot. Overall I love the ease of use and the qualty.

                                        I use it for personal purpose when take pictures of my family and friends and I need accurate white balance on my pictures. This is the product to own.
                                        For me is the right size and good quality comes with it. The price was a little bit higher for a small product like this one, but it does the job.

                                        I'm not sure what to think of it. Most of the time my Canon 60D auto white balance is close to the corrected white balance - like +/-100°K, not something you would notice. It once made something totally funky. See pics. I think I'd rather go with something else. Very thin plastic made. Probably not durable.

                                          I use this card in a museum setting where it is positioned along with museum specimens being photographed in an ortery light box (flourescent lights). We calibrated the camera's white balance setting using a larger gray standard from a different company, but it produces a slightly different temperature than the G7 card does. In post processing, adjusting based on the G7 provides a 'truer' whitebalance in our opinion; I haven't used this in the outdoors yet, but look forward to trying it out next summer.
