Product Highlights
  • Gray Card for Accurate White Balance
  • Spectrally Neutral
  • Waterproof and Scratchproof
  • Responds to UV Light and Visible Light
  • Designed for Low Reflectivity
  • White Balance, Black Point, White Point
  • 3.5 x 6" (8.9 x 15.24 cm)

To get the best from your digital camera, use a gray card to accurately set white balance. WhiBal's G7 White Balance Studio Card is an extremely accurate, convenient gray card that can hang on a studio hook or lanyard (not included), 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 3.5 x 6" (8.9 x 15.24 cm)

      I work as a staff photographer for a college, and so I shoot everything from studio portraits, to athletic events, to faculty/student organization portraits outside, to student activities and club events, to Opera performances. Overall, I found the G7 White Balance Studio Card to be exceedingly useful. Esecially for shooting under pretty consistent lighting conditions. It is great for studio and other portrait work and also works well with athletic events. It tends to be less helpful when you have a mix of light falling in a frame or the lighing is in a state of flux. As for the size, it's big enough to be captured well in a test shot, but small enough to slip into your pocket.
      Overall great product!

      Pro user... Mine had a slight yellow bias as compared to other cards... disappointed. If you buy, get the bigger card for in camera white balance. Otherwise you may find yourself pulling out a macro lens every time you use it. Overall, does respectable job for in-camera white balance and not very good job in RAW post...

        Hands down the best white balance card I've used. Light weight and durable enough to hold up for several years of heavy use.

          The Whibal card is a great value because it is very accurate and it lasts a long time. Some white balance devices are accurate, but they aren't that durable, and others are durable, but have color casts

              Comments about WhiBal G7 White Balance Studio Card:

              I am a semi-pro photographer. I own two of these cards, a credit card size and a studio size. These cards give me the MOST consistent and reliable white balance I have EVER had in all my years of photography. They are virtually indestructible. So with proper care and if you don't lose it, it should last forever. All you need to do is use it! Its simple! Just make sure the card is in the same light as the subject you are shooting and the card does the rest when you come to white balance part of editing in Lightroom , Photoshop Camera Raw or whatever editing program you use. I have not found a thing I do not like about this product. I does what they say it does. Thanks WhiBal and B&H for marketing and selling a truly great product!

                This is a great card and individually calibrated. Works very well and gets excellent white balance results. My only complaint is that it's fairly pricey for a piece of plastic, no matter how carefully it's been tested.

                  Very good product/size.

                  Durable & flexible; but will bend/conform under pressure (flexible plastic) and not break.

                  Somewhat difficult to get back into shape/straiten/flatten back out, but its flexibility is an advantage.

                  Accurate for WB settings/adjustments.

                            Excellent size, easily fits into my Lowepro S&F Series Filter Pouch 100 ... just take one photo of the WhiBal in the same direction as the subject with source light and watch how fast your post production work gets with this handy tool. The only reason I gave 4 stars is for not including a simple string or an attachment so it does not get lost easily...all it has is a hole. But again it costs less then a third of ExpoDisc. I prefer using both ExpoDisc as well as WhiBal for different situations ... both complement each other.

                              Ideal for both exposure and WB. A convenient size, much easier to take readings on the larger size card than the small one, yet still highly portable and easily fits in camera bag.

                              Since I own a 18% grey card Im more confident about the final result of my work. At pre-production I always use it to ensure correct exposure and then as a white balance in post... The only downside of the Whibal is that during daylight and at direct sun it gets soft and flimsy.
