Delta 1 Gray Card Reviews

It's a very gray card

It's a card that's gray, and it does a great job of being one! The right size to be able to easily stash in even a small camera bag.

An inexpensive useful photography accessory.

The Delta Gray card provides an easy, quick way to check your light meter readings. It helps determine exposure when the lighting may be uneven or if your camera lacks a light meter. Lightweight and easy to fit in with you photography gear.

Coming apart in the first two days of use.

I bought this gray card for a photography class I'm taking. In the first two days of use, the gray paper has separated from its cardboard backing. As you can see, the paper and cardboard are not damaged; they split on their own.

Straightforward gray card, but out-of-date instructions

I've carried one of these for 13 years, and it's been great! I tried one of those white-balancing lens caps at one point, but it was highly inaccurate compared to my trusty 18% gray card. I'm only on B&H now to buy a replacement as I left mine in the window and suspect that it may have faded. B&H's product photo of the backside is exactly the same as my 13-year-old one, right down to the UPC. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear the instructions have been updated for the digital era; they still reference film photography throughout. I'm deducting one star for that. I'm intrigued by the plastic ones. Perhaps they will be waterproof, thus cleanable, thus longer lasting...not that I can complain about the lifespan I got out of this one.

Simple and cheap.

It’s not durable, but what do you want for so little cash.

Ansel Adams would love that you use this!

Zone system info; how to use the gray card; and how to determine lighting ratios and color balance is printed right on the back, which is super useful. It's cardboard, so keep it in a gallon-sized food storage bag to keep it clean between use.

Works Well

Correct, compact, inexpensive.

Cheap for a reason

The card is basically a thin cardboard sheet plucked from a larger piece as evidenced by the unfinished tabs on the sides. One side is the cardboard color we all know and the other side is a bit darker than middle gray by my tests, possibly painted? Get a better product, skip this one.

Can this be purchased without the backer board ...

Can this be purchased without the backer board material? We need this to be as thin as possible.

Won't a cardboard card get dirty pretty quick?

I don't know why cardboard would get dirtier faster than something else. I keep mine in a Ziplock bag when not in use, and never had a problem.
