Product Highlights
  • Quickly Set Your Camera White Balance
  • Works for Still and Video
  • Provides Accurate, Consistent Color
  • Calibrated and Certified for Neutrality
  • Use in Ambient, Studio or Mixed Light
  • Easy to Use, Durable, Compact

The ExpoDisc Neutral White Balance Filter allows digital photographers to quickly and easily set an accurate custom white balance.  Each ExpoDisc is individually assembled, calibrated and certified for neutrality in the visible spectrum, and for 18% light transmission.

The ExpoDisc can be used on-the-fly to set a white balance in-camera when shooting JPEG, or later in post production when shooting RAW. 

Using an ExpoDisc to set a custom white balance results in consistently balanced color and eliminates many of the yellow, red and blue color casts commonly seen in digital photography.

The ExpoDisc is easy to use.  Setting a white balance with the ExpoDisc eliminates many of the inconsistencies and inconveniences associated with using white balance cards and targets, including unwieldy size, unwanted reflectivity, improper angling, and shadows.

To set a white balance with an ExpoDisc, simply take a photograph of the light source (incident light) through the ExpoDisc, then follow your camera's instructions to set the camera's custom white balance.

Because the ExpoDisc is calibrated for an 18% light transmission, you can also use it as a reference tool for manually determining proper exposure.

The ExpoDisc is available in a variety of sizes to fit most popular lenses.  The ExpoDisc does not thread into the lens; instead, its quick mount design can be pushed-on and popped-off to facilitate a quick white balance.

ExpoDiscs do not screw in. They lack front threads and were designed to be pushed-on over the lens threads in order to facilitate a quick white balance.

              Every Time I use this with my D800, i get perfect colors which saves me time in post processing. It just slips onto your lens, you set up a preset white balance, and go shoot. I was using this with the Nikon 50mm f/1.4 AF-S. Be careful with the filter coming off, it is not screw mount.

                          In a nutshell, I challenge you to find another [$] investment that will make a bigger difference in your photography. I liked the concept of these when I saw them a while back, but it took a decent sale for me to push buy. I should have done it sooner. My ExpoDisc gets the white balance dead right every time. No mucking about with sliders, no guesswork, no relying on a computer's opinion. AWB does a good job most of the time, but with this, you KNOW the white balance is correct. I think it's easier to use than a grey card, since it saves time during post-processing, and you don't have to give it to your subject. I've started carrying it in an external pouch for quick access - I find it easier to balance frequently than to tweak the image later. With a little practice, slapping the disc on before a critical shot becomes as natural as setting the exposure. Most of the negative reviews seem to defy the instructions. Proper use is going your subject and shooting toward where the camera will be, so the disc balances the light your subject will receive. Contrary to some reviews, it does work with flash, but you need a remote cord or wireless flash. Basically, you get close to your photo's ISO, aperture, and shutter speed, and take a photo with the flash facing your camera (incidentally, now I know that my flash's temperature is ~10,600K).I do recommend buying the size that matches the largest filter thread you're ever likely to use. I bought a 58mm version, and immediately got my hands on a 72mm lens. The disc still works, since my camera balances from the center of the shot, but I'd rather put the ExpoDisc on the filter ring than the ExpoDisc ring on my filter. Small foible, and easy to avoid. This is still one of the easiest ways to improve your work.

                            This product does exactly what it says it does. I use this with my Canon Digital Rebel XTi (several years old), and am constantly blown away by the color quality I'm able to get from an entry-level camera.

                            The first real-world use I got from this was with the birth of my first son. I literally received the ExpoDisc the same day my wife went into labor! So I had virtually zero time to read instructions and figure out how it works. Thankfully, it just works. Put your camera on auto white balance and manual focus. Put your camera where your subject is, point at the light source and shoot. Then use that photo as the reference for your custom white balance. That's it!

                            I couldn't be more pleased with my ExpoDisc.

                            TIP: If you're like me and have many different lenses with different sizes, just buy the ExpoDisc that fits your largest lens. It works just as well to hold the ExpoDisc over the end of smaller lenses.

                              If you need accurate colouring then this is great - I had to take photos of paintings for a Gallery Catalogue so the renditions had to be perfect. Setting up the lighting, which remained constant, the white balance on the camera was set through the ExpoDisc and all worked perfectly.

                                While I have only had the chance to use it in the studio thus far, it has given me satisfactory results (though at times gives more of a red tone than I would desire). Now the real deal is when I try it out at upcoming weddings!

                                  Used the disc to set the white balance when taking photos in a gym. Easily readjusted each time I moved to a different location. Photos improved markedly over trying to 'eye' the white balance or adjust it later.

                                  I am a semi-professional portrait photographer and I use this white balance filter before every session. This is an essential step to achieve great skin tone. It removes all cast colors and it's simple and easy to use. The only downside is that it doesn't have threads, so sometimes it falls off of the lens. Overall though, a definite must buy.

                                        I used an Expo Disc in the past and I wanted another one that fit the lens I typically use indoors. With a variety of light sources, the auto balances never really work. The expo disc helps with exposure and allows for spot on white balance. Setting the white balance takes only seconds with the Expo Disc. Highly recommend.

                                          Great for those times that preset white balance just doesn't cut it! Sometimes overcorrects if used outside at first light or sunset.

                                            Results were much better than anticipated. Color rendition was magnificent. It’s has a nice strap to carry around your neck; however, I find it a bit too annoying to carry around for a casual shoot out.

                                            My only comment is that it doesn’t mount firmly on my various filters, and especially on the “slim” filters. If you mind using an extra hand to hold the ExpoDisc against your lens, stay away from the “slim” filters.

                                            I would consider the ExpoCap if it delivers similar accurate results.

                                              I would normaly edit my photos & fix white balance with photoshop, Now that I use the expodisc , very little correction is needed. Its important to know how to use it or results will not be satisfactory. It really does make a difference.
