WhiBal WB7-PC overview

  • 1Description

To get the best from your digital camera, use a gray card to accurately set white balance. WhiBal's G7 White Balance Pocket Card is an extremely accurate, convenient gray card that fits in a shirt pocket, and can be used in any shooting situation. It can also be used to set neutral White and Black reference areas for setting dynamic range in digital capture using the Black and White Eyedroppers available within Lightroom and other RAW conversion software, Photoshop and most other editing software.

By photographing a gray card reference for each lighting situation, you'll be able to achieve a proper white balance for all of your pictures. The gray card reference picture can be used with software to balance the color casts that various lighting conditions produce with all digital cameras.

Spectrally neutral--reflects all colors through the spectrum equally. The G7 Reference Card has both *a and *b Lab channel values of less than 1 at D50 and are spectrally "flat". It's spec'd at less than +/- 0.5.
Maintains its spectral neutrality under all reasonable temperature and environmental conditions.
Rugged--waterproof and scratchproof (color goes all the way through, not just a coating on top).
Does not respond to UV light any differently than the visible spectrum.
Each card is individually measured with a precision spectrophotometer to certify that it meets or exceeds stringent specifications.
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.
Can be used to set white balance reference, Black point and White point.

    WhiBal WB7-PC reviews

    G7 White Balance Pocket Card is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 83.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the job for White Balance It does what it is supposed to do. However, I need to point out two things. First, I did exchange the Pocket Card for the slightly larger Studio Card - I like to set WB in the field to get as close as possible for less Post work and the smaller card was really hard to fill the frame. Second, the gray color no longer goes all the way through the material. This is a change with the G7 version but the product description still indicates the card can be sanded, scratches removed, etc. (When you look at the edge of the card and the back, you will see white material, not gray.) But, for White Balance - it works great.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good card This card is very small and is easily stowed in my camera bag/pockets. I shoot images in raw and take a quick snap of this card whenever the lighting changes. I then use the image later in Lightroom to set the custom white balance. I have also used this card to set the custom white balance in-camera when shooting jpeg and it gave good results as well (although they say to use the larger studio card for this). I recommend going to the Whibal website and watching their series of video tutorials which thoroughly discuss how these cards are made, manufacturing tolerances and testing and how to properly use them to get the best results.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do Not Like the Construction: Not as Durable as G6 Card I have used the G6 White Balance for years. It was of Rugged Construction and Accurate WB. I received the G7 and learned that the material used in the construction of the card is thinner than a credit card. It is designed to keep in a wallet or purse..... I shoot sports and like to attached to a camera bag. This has been my reminder for years to shoot a WHITE BALANCE reference. The G7 is Not Durable Enough to attach to my camera bag. IMO it is Ok if you like keeping in your wallet or purse.... I would not have purchased if I realized the changed construction. There are other products that are better designed for my use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised Heard about this product after taking a semester course. The instructor often used this product as an example to easily correct white balance. I use this product at the beginning of any shoot by simply having someone hold it or hold it out with my hand and snap a picture. Once the pictures are uploaded into photoshop you can grab the whitebalance eyedropper and click right on the card. Add this effect to all of your pictures and you are done. No setting in your camera has to be set. Keep it on auto whitebalance and do the adjustment in post production.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Mini Marvel This is worth having even if you're a point-and-shoot user like me. I'm getting much better pictures than I did with auto-white or presets. You can white balance your camera on the spot using the grey portion of the card, or use the nearest preset and tweak it afterwards in software. As an experiment, I took a few shots of the WhiBal (surrounded by flowers and other colorful objects) deliberately on the wrong white balance setting and had great results in correcting them. But even photos that were properly white balanced in the first place seem to come alive when I use the black and white strips on the card to adjust levels in my editing software. It may seem pricey for a little grey card but the WhiBal is a well-made and well thought-out product that does the job beautifully. I recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simplest grey card yet! I had never used a grey card before, and to be honest, I had no idea what it was that it even did! Now that I have used my G7 White Balance card, I will probably never go back to taking photos without it. I'm mainly a portrait photographer, but I have been having to take photos of other things for the current photography class that I am in. I had to buy the grey card for the class, and I absolutely love it. It takes off hours of editing on all the pictures that I have taken, and I couldn't be happier with the ease and the results this product has given me. Grey cards help find the perfect lighting for the conditions you're in, and this grey card is super simple and easy to use. It can fit in your pocket, or you can put it on a lanyard for easy access. I would definitely recommend this to other users.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from New Card v's Old Card 3 stars for new card and 5 for the old card. Why? Because the new one will not stand up on a pile carpet. The paper clip stand works on a hard surface fine but carpet - sometimes. This aspect needs a re-design. Interestingly they are slightly different shades of grey. Color with this card can be 1000K different to some other cards. but this is the most accurate. In a mixed light situation positioning is all important away from a direct light source. Where ever it gives a good starting point that a little comman sense can help with.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Satisfied with results I use this card in a museum setting where it is positioned along with museum specimens being photographed in an ortery light box (flourescent lights). We calibrated the camera's white balance setting using a larger gray standard from a different company, but it produces a slightly different temperature than the G7 card does. In post processing, adjusting based on the G7 provides a 'truer' whitebalance in our opinion; I haven't used this in the outdoors yet, but look forward to trying it out next summer.
