WhiBal WB7-SK overview

  • 1Description

The WhiBal White Balance G7 Studio Kit provides you with a reference point for acquiring accurate color temperature within a particular lighting scenario. Because color temperature varies under different lighting sources (i.e. sunlight, fluorescent, halogen, incandescent) it's important to use a white balance card for proper color representation under any type of light.

WhiBal white balance cards are designed to be neutrally gray throughout their surface, are water and scratch proof, and are individually tested by an industrial spectrophotometer before they leave the factory. For it to work properly the card must be held at an angle where there's no reflection bouncing off of it. For this reason the white balance card, which in itself is very low reflective, features a highly reflective sticker that shows the photographer at a glance whether the card is held properly.

To achieve maximum results it's best to shoot in RAW and then use a RAW conversion program such as Adobe Camera Raw or Lightroom to adjust the picture. With a RAW conversion software you can also white balance at once a group of pictures taken under the same lighting conditions. Included in the kit are a stand and a hanger for placing the card upright on a wall or horizontal surface. Also included is a Tyvek sleeve for protecting the card in between uses.

Waterproof and scratchproof material
Comes with convenient stand for ease of setup on tables or flat surfaces. No need for someone to hold the WhiBal.
Each card is individually measured with a precision spectrophotometer to certify that it meets or exceeds stringent specifications
The Gray card is designed for low reflectivity, except that the sticker is intentionally highly reflective so that maximum TrueBlack Blackpoint level may be achieved by observing for maximum glare point and then backing the angle down.
Can be used to set white balance reference, black point and white point.

    WhiBal WB7-SK reviews

    White Balance G7 Studio Kit is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy! I am a newborn photographer. I use mostly ambient, natural light in the clients house. With painted walls, etc. I sometimes have a color cast. I have used the WhiBal to set my white balance in camera. Works great. It is Durable and came with a little stand/hanger which helps me a lot as I have no assistant. If you follow your camera custom white balance instructions and the instructions for the WhiBal you should do okay. It is like any other gray card or white balance device to use. If the light changes or you change your position to the light, subject changes position to the light, you have to take another shot with the WhiBal in it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Does Work!!! This product does an outstanding job at white balance correction. I setup my Nikon D7000 to some really wacky white balance settings and shot a few test shots with the Whibal card in some to test out white balance correction and man what a great job this little card did. I even used auto white balance settings on camera and took test shots of card in pictures to compare the auto on camera and the cards white balance, and got better results with true color from the Whibal card. I use this in lightroom 3 with the white balance picker tool. Just click on card and that's it, then sync all your photos that were taken in the same lighting/place/setting. This is so easy, even a cave-women can do it. Glad I bought this, almost got the Xrite color checker passport at a much higher $$$. Save your money and get this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have accessory Works very well with my Nikon DSLR, takes seconds to get an accurate custom white balance. It's small enough to fit in your pocket but big enough to fill the frame of most lenses. I wish I had one of these when I first got into digital photography. It is a must have accessory.I'm glad I didn't get the smaller one or bigger one however next time I would just buy the card and not bother with the kit that includes a neck strap, clip, and protective sleeve all of which are kinda finicky and not worth the extra $ in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easily and accurately set your white bal Very easy to use, just take a picture of it in the same lighting as what you're shooting. Then, in post processing, go to the image with the Whi-Bal card in it, and use it to set your white balance for the rest of the shots. If your lighting keeps changing, then just shoot another shot with it. The kit has a little s-clip carabiner that doubles as a stand in case you need to place it and step back. The plastic cards are pretty durable, though you still need to exercise reasonable care with them. The neutral area is actually the card itself, rather than a sticker or paint. The black and white areas also help set your dynamic range. Easy enough to slip one in your pocket, or in a pocket of your camera bag so you can have it on hand wherever you're shooting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Grey Card That's Just Right I recently discovered the value of getting the color balance right BEFORE I start shooting. This white balance card does the trick. It's just the right size to fit in my camera bag, and even comes with a neck strap so you can keep it ready during a shoot. It's grey, but also white and black. And it's easy to handle and doesn't require batteries or assembly. Very nice to have.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great helper! use it wether it's for post or pre white balancing. I use it to balance the white on my Canon 5d Mark ii. It is water resistant, solid (will not deteriorate for a long time!), big enough to see it well. It came with a metal clipping tool that makes it easy to hang or support the card on a flat surface. As of now, I cannot think of any bad thing about this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what it says! The best white balance tool you can get! Works great! Works better than any 18% gray material. You don't really know just how off your white balance is until you us this product! Get one!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for product photography I purchased this specifically for my mobile product photography setup. Great portable size and durable construction. The added protection of the sleeve to hold the card is also appreciated. The card not only helps with white balance but also chromatic aberration. Perfect for photography with consistent lighting.
