I am not a professional photographer, but an amateur that likes quality images. I take lots of photos and video of mostly family and scenic events using my Nikon D40 SLR and my Canon HV30 camcorder. I do not have the time or software to fool around spending lots of time correcting images/video after the fact.
I first ordered the ExpoDisc 52mm for my camcorder and loved it. I then got a larger lens for my Nikon D40 and decided to go to the expense of getting the 67mm ExpoDisc, as I was so impressed with the way it worked on my camcorder. It was immediately apparent that the resulting colors were much more accurate than those by the camcorder's white balance settings. I video my granddaughter's dance competition which is mainly held in very low light gym conditions. Whenever I used the ExpoDisc, the colors always came out correctly. Prior to this, I was getting colors of costumes that were completely different than what they really should have been.
I also was able to use the ExpoDisc on a recent trip to Lake Tahoe. I was amazed at the accurate color rendition of snow scenes, both with a polarizing filter and without.
The ExpoDisc worked flawlessly on top of the polarizing filter.
One important suggestion, buy the largest possible ExpoDisc for any future lens that you think you might acquire. I made the mistake of buying a 52mm and then had to turn around and buy a larger 67mm due to buying a larger lens. The nice thing is that a larger ExpoDisc works on any smaller lens just by holding it in front of the lens.
The construction is very solid and quality oriented. At first I thought the lanyard was a bit "Geeky", but now it is invaluable, as the disc is always available.

Works great has small challenges.

Works well, however you can not put on over other filters. It clips on but only to the lens. Filters will not let the lens attach proporly. The lanyard string is too large...Read complete review

Works well, however you can not put on over other filters. It clips on but only to the lens. Filters will not let the lens attach proporly. The lanyard string is too large to fit in the small hole povided, had to imporvise some other way. Still beets white carding!

    Before using the ExpoDisc the colors in my photos would always be way inaccurate, I would take a photo under fluorescent lighting and the white walls in the photo would always be yellow, Now never again with the expo disc. I used this product under every lighting situation and it never fails. The colors in my photos and now rich and accurate. There's nothing negative I can say about the ExpoDisc it does exactly what it supposed to do and it's built very well.

    This seems pretty simple and there are videos, booklets, online help about how o use it. I've only practiced a few inside shots with it and it seems pretty simple- you just order according to the size of the lens glass.

        I had always problem with white balance in my camera on different condition of light , so I tried to use ExpoDisc, It is fantastic and so fast and you don't need to spend your time for post processing to adjust white balance of your photos because with ExpoDisc everything is Ok.

          Very useful, so easy to use, just set my exposure, whack on the expodisc, hold the buttom for custom WB, snap in the direction I take the photo from and near-on-perfect WB automatically, every time. It's just a matter of remembering to re-set WB when changing angles or set ups etc.

          Slightly expensive, but still a worthwhile product

            Comments about ExpoImaging ExpoDisc 67mm Digital White Balance Filter - Neutral:

            I don't know how I took pictures without this. Since I've had this, I continually test it against the AWB in the camera and am continually shocked to see how off the camera AWB function is. This saves so much time in post-production because I don't have to play around with adjusting temperatures to get skin tones right. Since time is money, this product has more than paid for itself. This Expodisc hangs around my neck at every shoot.

            You only need to buy one to match the biggest filter size you own (I actually needed the 77mm but didn't realize it until later) because it doesn't actually thread into the filter threads. It holds itself in, but you can just hold against the lens opening to use it for every smaller size lens you own.

                    The first time I used this little jewel I could see a big difference in the quality of the picture color. WOW.....If WB is crucial to you then the ExpoDisc is your answer, look no further. I have already recommended it to a friend and will keep doing so.

                          In my opinion the EXPODISC is the overall custom white balance aid/tool available. This is well made and comes in an excellent storage pouch with a good lanyard. Furthermore, the company, EXPO Imaging offers rapid and excellent canned and personal support of their products.

                            I've never bothered with gray cards, but this solution is simple and straightforward enough that I will use it. It's still a few steps to calibrate the camera for the conditions, but well within the realm of what I'm willing to do. (Oh, and it works well. Tried under the yellow of our kitchen lights and immediately got better color than any "camera preset" white balances")

                              Fast, accurate and easy to use. I use it on a Nikon D90, just select w/b preset click the shutter and your all set.

                                    Use primarily for portrait WB customer setting although plan on trying it for landscape photography as well. Takes only a minute to pop it on and get a setting (at least on my Nikon).
                                    Works as advertised - no more guessing on K values, leaving it up to the camera's "best guess" algorithm, or picking a fixed mode and hoping for the best.

                                        This has to be one of the easiest way to improve your photography and work flow. It is simple to use and just simply works if I lost mine today I would replace it immediately.
