Does the gray card have autofocus reference lines? The camera might have difficulty focusing without the contrast of focus lines.
Asked by: Anthony
There are no autofocus reference lines on these cards. You best bet is to manually focus anyway.

What should the technical correct middle gray IRE value be on the waveform for Rec709?
Asked by: Jiajian
The best IRE value to set for the middle gray card of the Vello White Balance Card Set (Medium) (B&H# VEWBCMII) will vary by your camera and chosen camera settings. As such, you will want to try out the settings until you find the one that works best for your needs. However, many people prefer to shoot around 40 when using a log format and a bit below 50 when shooting with linear exposure.

Will the white ever fade to yellow? Should I plan on buying new ones every 3-4 years?
Asked by: Pierre
All white balance cards including the Vello White Balance Card Set (Medium) will generally shift over time. It is a good idea to double check these every year or so to make sure they are still accurate.

If I'm looking for consistent color in narrative ...

If I'm looking for consistent color in narrative film across different shotcomps, does it make more sense to aim my camera at a WB card and set the WB in-camera (which will change the Kelvin temperature each time for each setup), or, would it be better for consistency across multiple shots/lighting setups, to set the WB to the color temp of the lights I'm using (5600K, daylight) for the in-camera WB, and then set the WB in post, by using the WB eyedropper, clicking on the same gray card recorded in frame, used w/ different lighting setups?
Asked by: Kevin
If you're shooting RAW, then you can do whichever is easier for your shooting environment. Setting WB in post certainly saves time, and with RAW, won't make any noticeable difference. With a high-quality codec like ProRes 444, you might get away with eyeballing WB in camera and slightly adjusting in post. However, if you're shooting any kind of compressed, even ProRes, you ideally want to get your white balance set on site.
