    Comments about Vortex Media WC3 WarmCards 3.0 White Balance Reference System:

    I like these cards becuase they are easy to use in the field and they offer a consistant white balance system between multiple cameras to match up color in the field as close as possible. Helps make the post production color correcting a little bit easier. I do wish they would bring back the 1/2 warm and maybe even a 1/4. 1 tend sto be to strong in a lot of our applications.

      Comments about Vortex Media WC3 WarmCards 3.0 White Balance Reference System:

      I used the cards to color balance underwater in pools. I use them especially to improve the skin tones. I have had great luck using the Warm 3 card to bring out the warmth of the skin and minimize the bue tones. It makes my color editing much easier compared to spending hours in photoshop.

      I would definitely recommend them.

        This is in my bag of tweaks. Whatever I can use to make my footage look better for my client than the other guys..... I'll use it. Nice gradual steps in warming up the image.

        They should've just included the big ones and the drop the price a little bit. Didn't love the price, but they are big, reliant and sturdy. They are worthwhile.

        Good product but way too much for what it is. There are cheaper solutions but it is very nice to have the range of color temperatures and the variety of sizes.

                Whole package is great. Different sizes depending on what your need is that day, a nice carrying pouch and robust so that it can get wet droppped kicked around and still be intact.

                Used these to add a "healthy feel" to a hospital promotional video. We used warm #1 for all of our footage and it gave a consistent pleasing look to our project. My only beef is the price is higher than it needs to be.

                    It's great that finally there's a grey card included in this warm card kit. So far for the past 8 yrs we have been using the WC3 Warmcards (earlier versions are not as robustic as this new version but yes it has served us well for the past few years) and it's definitely a "must-have" for those who wants a tighter control and better quality in their production. Values over pricing :-) thumbs up :-)

                        These are made to last a lifetime. Really makes a quality and consistent color balance quick. The range seems a bit extensive to really be useful.
