      This gets the white balance job done with minimal space taken up in the bag -- full-size cards are neither necessary nor as convenient as these little guys. I have noticed, though, that since the surfaces of these cards are slightly reflective, almost but not quite matte, one must be careful to avoid photographing a shiny reflection instead of the ambient tone of the cards themselves.

      In testing the card set in my studio, it worked very well. But once I was on site in low-light conditions, it often would not give my camera a good read and I had to rely on automatic white balance settings. I wish I had brought a larger card with me to the site.
      The fact that it's small and fits into my camera bag was very nice, and I will use it again in better lighting conditions and where accuracy is not so much a requirement.

        Comments about Vello White Balance Card Set for Digital Photography (Small, 3.25 x 2"):

        I love this Small white balance card set. I use it to set my white balance in lightroom. Before I purchased the Vello card set I was using a grey card on the heavy board. it worked great but was always a hassle and I lost it frequently on shoots. This card set is awesome. It's convenient to carry with the neck strap, and the detachable piece is perfect. I don't have to struggle with camera straps, light meter, etc. Great purchase!

            It's a nice idea but the cards are too small to get a good calibration.

            An essential piece of equipment in my opinion. This makes setting proper white balance very easy, and repeatable. Plus at this low price no one should be passing this up.

              Use this to white balance my sony FS100. Because it has a necklace I look that much more professional on shoots (c'mon perception is key folks!) it also fits in my camera bag. Sturdy and you can tell it's built with quality in mind.

                  Getting the right white balance and being able to assure proper color balance is important when doing portraits.Instead of carrying a full size gray card everywhere, the Vello Balance Card Set is the perfect size to fit in a pocket of my camera bag and give me the same results as carrying a larger card.

                  The card set is very convenient by virtue of its size and the quality is good. I would prefer the product to be ~25% larger which would not materially compromise convenience but would improve ease of use.

                        I actually use these cards in post-processing more than I do in the moment. It's easy enough most of the time to snap a quick reference picture with them in place.

                        They're easy enough to carry around, but so is a white piece of paper. They just handle better in pockets.

                          Compact for gear bag or wear around the neck.
                          Cards are a bit small,but do not present any problem.

                              I used this gray card to get the correct color temperature in studio photography. It's small but it works very well. you just put it in from of the model and use lightroom to get the correct color temperature.

                                  There's not much to say about this.. it does what it's supposed to do.

                                    What a really great product to have when your dealing with poor lighting or changing lighting environments. It doesn't take up much space and comes with a lanyard if you need to carry it.

                                        Love it! Clip onto tripod and always there when I need it. Small and compact, shows all 3 colors easily.
                                        Would recommend to others.

                                          I'm figuring out custom white balance and this is definitely helpful when I photograph weddings.
