The 82mm ExpoImaging ExpoDisc 2.0 White Balance Filter features 18% calibrated light transmission for ensuring correct exposure and white balance settings while shooting and editing. It attaches to lenses or filters with an 82mm thread via a button-activated spring attachment. This is even compatible with low-profile filter threads. Also, the ExpoDisc 2.0 can be used with smaller lenses by simply holding the filter in front of the lens.

The ExpoDisc 2.0 can also be used to dust map your sensor due to the neutral image it creates. Additionally, two warming filters are included that are inserted into recesses on the face of the filter. These two levels of warming add warmth for more pleasing skin tones.

Each filter is made and calibrated in the USA for accuracy and includes a lanyard and carrying case.

    ExpoDisc 2.0 82mm White Balance Filter is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 51.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute necessity if colorblind Have Canon 5D M III with very good lenses, but using AWB (Always Wrong Balance) or any of the other choices, even though this Camera is about as good as it gets using presets, does not produce true color. How do I know, since moderately colorblind? Shot one pic on AWB other with custom white balance as determined by ExpoDisk (same exposure taken with no change in light). My color normal people (females: spouse and astist daughter)in a blind test picked the best photos shot as the ones when using ExpoDisk. I have to have the RAW file come from camera as correct as possible, not just for PP effieciency but for correct color.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great. I have used grey cards in the past but I feel my images are more accurate using the Expo Disc. So much easier to use and can keep it on my body easily to re-calibrate quickly at any time. I went to take some pics recently and forgot it. It felt like I left something major behind (like a memory card or battery). I feel it's now one of my main pieces of gear and make sure I have it every time I leave with my camera now. It's worth it. Get it. I do wish it felt a little more solid but I haven't had any issues with it breaking yet. I do wear it around my neck on the lanyard it comes with and if it were metal, it may clang around my camera. So it's probably better of being the plastic that it is.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful and easy to use I have had a problem with getting my color accurate for a while now and even though people would tell me the image looks good I would still be unhappy with the way it turned out. It never look natural to my eye. I purchased this expodisc to see if 1) worth the time 2)worth the money 3) practical 4) easily incorporated into my work flow with the clients. After testing the expodisc in my home under different lighting situations I found that this was a pretty awesome little device and white balances great. It takes no additional time when on location to just pop this out and white balance. After a few times you get the hang of it very easily. During the actually session it wont slow you down but a few seconds if you know what to do. The expodisc does come in a bit expensive for what it is. Really it is just a piece of plastic (though it is individually calibrated to ensure proper WB). Really you can just buy a grey card for a few bucks to half the price and it works the same way, which I have done before but that was a little bit too time consuming and they always got bent, discolored or damaged because of their nature. So I guess this is the trade off for the price. Not to mention it is much easier and can be done with one person and does not need the client or an assistant to help hold or place it. I am able to save time however in post and I mean a lot of time. One of the most difficult and time consuming parts of editing for me was proper white balance, since I white balance in camera and 90% of the time it is spot on I do not need to adjust the image to achieve the proper look that I am looking for. I say 90% of the time because I do have occational situations where the lighting is just crazy and the expodisc does not generate a proper balance. However, I think that has less to do with the disc and more to do with the camera/sensor. I bough a little pouch and I secure to my belt which I think is very convient since I usually WB everytime the situation changes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes your workflow faster! I was skeptical about this product first but I decided to give it a try. Let me say it does work, the White Balance is always perfect with this disk. Don't get me wrong, the cards still work, but this disk makes the job way easier and faster. Let me put it this way, it is more precise than the cards because you actually point the camera and disk to the light source and the camera adjusts accordingly. The construction feels solid, the item is well built, it comes with a lanyard, a carrying case and extra filters. Go with the 82mm, you can use it with every lens size.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap and overpriced. I purchased the ExpoDisc with the hope of having a durable, reliable option that would speed up my workflow when shooting on-site. Unfortunately it turned out to be quite the opposite. Put simply, the ExpoDisc can be incredibly hit or miss when setting white balance on the quick and easy; the primary thing it's advertised for. In predictable lighting conditions it works fairly well, albeit not much quicker workflow-wise than your standard grey card. It's in mixed lighting conditions where the wheels fall off. Even when facing the most prominent light source the ExpoDisc can't seem to make up it's mind what it wants to balance off, making it incredibly unreliable in situations where time is of the essence. I was still getting more consistent results with a regular grey card in challenging, mixed lighting conditions than with the ExpoDisc. My second biggest gripe is the shoddy construction and general low quality of the product. It is made of cheap plastic all throughout and feels quite toy-ish. I honestly doubt it would survive an accidental drop, which is probably why they include the obtrusive and otherwise unnecessary lanyard attachment. It feels and handles like a product that should be worth a third of the price. All in all I would not recommend this. Stick with a grey card, even if it looks somewhat anachronistic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes it so easy to have a consistent White Balance I knew and understood the importance of white balance for years, but could not be bothered to use a reference card... choosing to instead to eye-ball-it in post processing. Problem was I couldn't achieve a consistent look across all my images in a shoot. I tried the Expodisc for the first time a week ago. I chose NOT to adjust my WB in-camera. I was worried that I might forget to take an additional reference shot when changing scenes so instead I decided to use the Expodisc to take reference shots between scenes and leave the in-camera settings on Auto. When it came time to process the RAW files in Lightroom, I was amazed at how easy it was and much it sped up my workflow. Can't believe I've been doing it wrong for so many years.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just get it. It works as it should. Beats grey cards. Beats figuring out the WB for yourself later. Wish they would have stuck with aluminium. But can't complain about the decrease in price!! Pouch seems cool, but in theory is a bit fiddly because the silicon sticks. If they would have made it slightly bigger, or the opening bigger, it would have been better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes my work look more expensive. Inspired by Amy and Jordan to use the expodisc as opposed to Kelvin and it is a game changer. My photos look more consistent and I'm able to produce higher quality work all with this one change. Highly recommend the expodisc. Tip: Get the biggest size they have so it will fit on your biggest lens (it will work on the small ones as well)
