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...

        Comments about WhiBal G7 White Balance Studio Card:

        I've been looking for a a good grey card for a while. I work as a staff photog on an older technological campus, so lighting is all over the place. Old incandescent in old buildings up to LED in the new science labs. This one is perfect. Its the perfect size for whipping out at events or even in one building with multi lighting. I had hesitations about the smaller card and would recommend this one. The plastic is also very durable, waterproof, and bends back to shape easily.
        I do have two tiny issues. After having it loose in my bag, I can see the white and black squares getting damaged in the future. Easy fix with the bag they provide though. Finally, it sometimes balances on the cooler side of things which is fine and still an easier fix than manually measuring every photo.

          I use this all the time!!! I carry it my pocket. Never leave home without it. Helps me get my white for landscape, street photography, portraits, everything. Super handy. This has helped my photography go to the next level with very swipe. Trademark. Worth the [$]bucks, but if it was 10 it would be a killer deal. Either way. Get it! The cards finish has held up for the past 2-3 months I've been using it. I keep it in the paper sleeve that is included.

                Work like a charm, very slim and extremely durable. It is flimsy but the color is through the whole thing so it wont scratch off. Fits almost anywhere and when you have a lot of gear like me it nice cause it take up no space. I will be buying the pocket card to go in my wallet.

                  I have a Sony RX100 II that I use for underwater photography. I want to experiment with a red lense in the shallows. Although I have not tested it underwater yet I tried it on some low light no flash situations and the results were outstanding. I am really looking forward to my next scuba trip. It is perfectly sized, sturdy and pre-drilled for attachment.

                  This is my second purchase of the Studio sized Whibal card. I use my original with every shoot and when I set up an auxiliary "Grab and Go" camera bag with a Nikon D7000 and basic gear, I wanted a Whibal card in that bag as well. They are pricey - but no other tool is as easy and as effective. A "must have" item in every photographers bag.

                      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

                          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.

                            G7 WB Studio is the "right size" for me!

                              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.

                                Comments about WhiBal G7 White Balance Studio Card:

                                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...

                                        It does what it says, measures the white balance very accurate. Only downside with this one is that there was no "stand" like the pocket version has. Perfect size

                                        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.

                                          Comments about WhiBal G7 White Balance Studio Card:

                                          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.
