      Comments about Gary Fong Color Reference Kit:

      Saw this in a video demonstration and decided to pick it up. But it just didn't work out well in practice. For white balance, I much prefer using a card (which often has white and black point patches) or even a color checker.

      Also, when I use a white balance device, I prefer placing it by the actual subject; makes for much more accurate results.

          This product is so easy to use. If you are taking pictures of landscape you can use the white disc on your camera. If you are taking portraits, the subject can hold the grey disc to their face and you only have to click and set your custom white balance in a whiff ... Great product

            carry this one set of domes and you can white balance a scene or use it to color balance in photoshop or what ever software you use. I was going to purchase a light meter but the white dome allows me to do the same but with my cameras own custom white balance.
