      Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

      This half color blind photographer can get the colors right and I don't think my kids are just saying they're right so they can get back to their electronics. Beats the pants off the cards I was using. With my Nikon D4 and D8xx I just lay it opened on the floor, set the WB to Pre in the menu, fill the frame with the QuickBalance's white side, hold down the WB button till Pre starts blinking in the viewfinder and press the shutter. gd will show up if you did it right. Doesn't take up much space either. A must have tool.

      Nice product

      By Dave from Location Recorders

      from Northern California

      Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

      This will come in very handy.. I'm a production sound mixer and cameramen are always asking for a sheet of white paper to white balance their camera... Whala, I whip out my small quick balance and I become the hero.

        Easy to use. Just what I was looking for in setting my White Balance. Just a little tricky to fold back up, but very compact and fits in my back pocket.

          I really like the collapsible panel due to the amount of space I have available. It's nice to use and then tuck when finished. Great idea!

            Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

            I've used a 4x5" Kodak gray card for over 20 years. It has seen better days and I thought it was a good time to replace it.

            This QuikBalance Collapsible Gray panel is easy to use and accurate. If you've every used any pop-out reflectors (such as Westcott) this works the same way. A flick of the wrist to unfold and twist with two hands to close. It appears to be durable and, as a bonus, the white side can be used as a small reflector.

              Easy to use. Bought it after instructor in photo class demonstrated how he uses it.

              I use QuikBalance to get accurate white balance settings.

              Must have for students

              By Moxy

              from Michigan

              Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

              I don't think a single person in my entire studio photo class didn't rush off to buy this after seeing how awesome & compact this was, not to mention how cool we looked when whipping it out of the convenient little pouch. It also makes a pretty awesome make-shift frisbee when you are bored waiting between shots. Seriously though, super useful, very sturdy, easy to fold, got here fast, and it's always with me now. I don't think I'll ever buy a different one.

              Simple and Effective

              from Philadelphia, PA

              Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

              There's really not much to say. I wanted a compact grey/white card for white balancing my Lumix GX7. Something compact that I could keep in my camera bag. This is exactly what I was looking for and exactly what I expected. I've purchased other products from Impact photo equipment through B&H. I like their products - so the decision was easy. It was just over $ so very affordable and includes a carrying case.

                It's a grey exposure balance card, and a white color balance card made of a cloth-like material. It folds with some difficulty. Exactly as you'd expect - i.e. it works, is cheap, and is portable.
