ExpoImaging 82mm ExpoDisc Digital Warm Balance Filter (Portrait)

B&H # EXWE12Y36MX
No Longer Available
Product Highlights
  • Quickly Set Your Camera White Balance
  • Works for Still and Video
  • Optimized for Portraiture
  • Warms Image (Equiv. 81A Warming Filter)
  • Use in Ambient, Studio or Mixed Light
  • Easy to Use, Durable, Compact

The 82mm ExpoDisc Neutral White Balance Filter (Portrait) is optimized for Portrait photography. Each filter is individually assembled and calibrated to consistently produce custom color at capture, resulting in warmer and more pleasing skin tones. The ExpoDisc can be used on-the-fly to set a white balance in-camera when shooting JPEG, or it can be used to capture a gray frame to use later in post production when shooting RAW.

Using an ExpoDisc Portrait to set a custom white balance will eliminate many of the yellow, red and blue color casts commonly seen when using Auto White Balance in digital photography. The ExpoDisc is easy to use. Setting a white balance with the ExpoDisc is fast, and 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.

Calibrated 18% light transmission for exposure reference

            Having to shoot under a wide specturm of light sources is always challenging. Achieving the white balance point can be tricky, even if you have Lightroom or Aperture.

            But when I was asked to shoot a corporate/charity video with my 5DMKII as well, the challenge rose to another level. This product allowed me to achieve perfect skin tones across 20+ screen over 2 days. We have every light condition to handle, including mixed sources. In every case, this proudct allowed me to set the right skin tone in 5 seconds.

            Having bought the largest size, I never could snap or screw this product onto my lens. I simply placed it over the lens and shot. Then it went back in the bag.

            I will now take this wonderful little gadget on all my weddings as well!

              It is a bit on the high side of what I wanted to spend, but the disc is a great tool for custom setting white balance. This is the only item I have to carry where ever I go for getting a correct white balance. The procedure took a while to figure out on my D300s, but it is worth it. It snaps right in on all my 82mm lens, other lens I just hold it up to the end for shooting a cutom white balance exposure. It helps you obtain correct skin tones also.

                        I use this to set a custom white balance every time I take pictures now- inside and out! It's especially helpful in my house with mixed lighting. I bought this size so that I can use it with ALL my lenses- I just hold it up in front of the lens- I don't screw it on.

                          I am using this product to balance the light indoors. Its easy to use. I am working with mixed lights, tungsten,daylight and flourescents(dental office) so using this took out the guess work.

                            The expodisc is AMAZING. Another photographer showed me how to use it on a shoot and I will NEVER leave home w/o it. It helps me in shooting in-camera correct the first time and I spend less time editing. I have so many images that turned out great straight out of the camera.

                            This is a great product. As a semi pro photographer I find many photographers do not even know how to white balance their cameras. I have found in the studio pics that have a lot of white, can come out with a bluis purple tint, as with slide film digital needs to be as close to the money as possible with exposure and white balance unless you are doing some deliberate over exposure. I lost my first Expo disk on an outside shoot this year (looked all over for it) immediately ordered another. Great Product!
