    R-27 Gray Cards is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 38.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must-have for the digital photographer If you can't afford a Gretag color checker, these cards are a great way to get consistent color. Yes, you can get white balance off your subject's white shirt, or use the auto mode, or guestimate when you open the images in photoshop, but there's something almost magic about the color you'll get if you use a real gray card to set your white balance. The best part of this particular version is you get a cute baby-sized grey card that fits in your pocket and is perfect for when you're out with a point-and-shoot.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Accurate On occasion I test various of my white balance gray cards. Colorchecker, Robin Myers, WhiBal, etc. It is my impression this Kodak card is very accurate for white balance use as well as its main purpose as for an exposure reference. The method I use is to shoot my D700 using a fixed white balance temp in menu, a challenging indoor light, and several targets together. Then I use NX2 white balance tool. Recent test, Colorchecker gray box no. 2 was 0.7 red, 2.47 blue slope, Kodak card was 0.7 red 2.48 blue slope. Not likely to notice this difference with your eye. All had the same red slope, some had more blue to 2.51. Not sure if this is accurate but it seems close enough to me. Only disadvantage is that it is paint on paper layered on cardboard. Same with Colorchecker. will wearout eventually.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from It'll get you in the ballpark. I got this card to set the 'custom white balance' for my digicams. It does quite well, although some tweaking in your favorite photo editor is still required to get the most from your file. Main gripe is that it is basically grey paper mounted on plain cardboard. It is already warping. Don't get it even slightly wet - easily discolors and don't leave it in the interior of a hot car - fades. In other words, great for indoor shoots, not so great for the outdoors in even the slightest of extremes.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from No need for photoshop Gives the best possible color representation. Photoshop comes close (with work), but nothing beats the real thing as a starting point. Much cheaper than the filter-type (screw in) gray cards I've seen around, and they work on any lens diameter. Economical and practical. However, set-up time makes them bad for on-the-spot photography.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product! After learning about how easy it can be to get great exposure using gray cards, I purchased these as recommended by a seasoned photographer. They have been awesome for me! I can just about guarantee perfect exposure every time I use my gray card.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Labor-saving device These gray cards provide a shortcut to precise color balance. By taking a test shot with the card positioned such that it is illuminated in the same way as your subject, you can adjust color balance in Photoshop using the neutral gray as a reference.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does its job. As a gray card, I use it to get consistent skin tone exposure for video which saves a lot of time from Color Correction. The white card to balance color temperture. A few minutes of prep saves hours in post. My only problem is that it really doesn't seem to be made from high quality materials.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Cards Provides consistent midpoint and custom white balance. I like having two sets of cards. Holding a gray and white card together in a proof photo gives both grey and white for editing. Also like the small card for travel.
