DGK Color Tools DGK-T overview

  • 1Description

The Tablet Size Digital Grey Kard from DGK Color Tools is a full-size calibrated and tested white balance and color reference card for digital photography. At 7.5 x 9.5 x 0.13", it is the same size as an iPad. The card's color characteristics are molded into it, rather than being painted or sprayed on. The Grey Kard uses pigment-based colorants for color accuracy and is light-resistant. Its color is measured via spectrophotometer for a high degree of accuracy and suitability for white balance and RAW image converters, both in the studio and on-location. Both sides can be used for color correction. The card is designed and made in the U.S.A. of durable, waterproof PVC plastic. Included is an 18 x 5/8" woven lanyard with safety release and detachable connector. Its red color makes it easy to find and retrieve the card, even from deep within your gear bag.

    DGK Color Tools DGK-T reviews

    Tablet Size Digital Gray Kard - White Balance / Color Reference Card is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, not perfect I've been trying several products for an accurate, reliable Custom WB target for my DSLR, and bought this one hoping for a gray reference card durable enough to keep in my camera bag at all times.Pros: In my tests it seems quite accurate in terms of neutral gray. It works much better than shoot through materials. It is made of opaque 1/16-inch PVC, very stiff, water and stain proof. The gray color is throughout the material and not just layered on.Cons: Its reflectivity is higher than the standard 18% gray, by about one f-stop, so I won't use it for exposure metering. And its surfaces are slightly shiny so it's a good idea to rough it up with 80-grit sandpaper.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grey, Smooth features, Precision hole on top The smooth features and luxurious sheen makes you want to dress up and take it out for a test drive. It only comes in one color, 18% Grey, but that GREY, it's sooo seductive, it's just what you need to set white balance. I have an Expo Disk but for product shots this works better. Once I get my lighting set the way I want it I hang it or lean it against the product, use it to set in camera white balance and also take a shot with it in it for the graphic artist to use downstream in the work flow. Very durable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from It sits at home. I bought this before I became a convert to the X-Rite color checker system and I carry the Color Checker Passport with me on every shoot. The passport uses a white for white balance and I have become a convert to the school of though that a white balance should be set off of something white, not grey. Since I have been doing that and using the X rite system, I have been much more pleased with the results. I also believe that this card is better for exposure setting rather than white balance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid and Durable Grey Card This is the one to get. It is nice and solid and seems like it'll last my career. Also has a nice bright red lanyard so that you can hang it around your assistant's neck.
