Vello White Balance Card Set Reviews
Good Bye Yelloish
I am new to ‘pro’ level cameras. One of my mistakes was trying without white balancing. This led to yellowing.
A Very Useful Tool.
Not everyone cares about perfect exposure or white balance for their images or footage these days, but if you want a good starting point for post-processing and especially color grading, these simple, convenient, and easy-to-use cards are just what you need to get an accurate reference.
Inexpensive and easy to use!
White balance in a photo or video is not crucial to everybody, but if it is to you, this set of simple WB cards is both inexpensive and very easy to use. If you are struggling to achieve consistency in the color or WB of your work, these cards will go a long way to help!
Good product, but not for me
This review is for the large size card set. Overall, I think these are good cards. However, a few things surprised me: * They're made out of plastic. I thought they'd be made out of cardboard. * They are quite thin (perhaps the thickness of a credit card). They don't always lay flat. * The finish is not matte enough; they have a slight sheen. For use on my DIY copy stand setup, you could see light glare on the surface of the cards. That makes it more difficult to get accurate exposure or color readings. Plus, when the cards don't lay flat, the glare can be worse. * The gray card seems cooler (more bluish) than other gray cards I remember. * While the nylon, zippered case is a nice idea, I think it's a bit too small. You need to fiddle with the cards to get them out or put them back in because the fit is so tight. From the reviews I've read, many people like these cards. That's great. However, for me, they didn't meet my expectations. I returned them. Thank you to B&H Photo for your awesome return policy.
Terrific value for price
Very good quality. Nice carrying case.
Sometimes Gray Isn't Precisely Gray
'Bout time someone gave a review with photo references... - - - Use the Delta 1 Gray card (cardboard) in the studio here and compared this to the Vello (plastic) three sizes set that just arrived. - - - First pic WB set from the Delta, second the Vello. Eyeballing I could see the Vello being cooler / bluer. Pics show the difference. With WB set from the Vello there's a bit of red / warmth being introduced that's spotted in the whites with the Delta card now picking up some as well. Kinda defeats the whole purpose of bothering with a gray card at all. - - - - So what's one to do with the Vellos? WB off the white chips only. As for the gray chips... I'm cutting up the cardboard Delta and gluing it to the plastic Vello for a more accurate reference. And BELIEVE those other one star reviews that report the problem of it being 18% gray.
Easy to pocket
Pocket size white balance card set. Great to use
White card seems to give good balance and Grey card appears to be very close if not spot on to a true 18% grey. I have not used the black card and probably will not use that one often. The carrying strap that comes with them is definitely useful but the cards easily fit into one of the medium size pockets of my vest.
