Impact QBP-G-12 overview

  • 1Description

The QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel from Impact is a convenient tool to ensure that your photos and videos are accurately exposed and color balanced. One side of the panel is 18% gray, while the other side is neutral white. By taking a photo or video of either the white or gray side of the panel in the same lighting conditions as your final image, you can accurately adjust exposure and color balance in camera, or in your post-production software.

The gray side of the panel has a target in the center so that your lens can find a focus point.
The panel collapses to just 1/3 of its full size, allowing it to fit in most camera bags.
A zippered storage sleeve is included to keep the panel collapsed during transport.
The panel has a convenient loop on one side, allowing you to attach it to a support stand.

    Impact QBP-G-12 reviews

    QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job This gray card gives me the exact white balance I need when recording video on a DSLR. By snapping a photo of the white side placed where the subject's face will be (interview) and then using that photo for a custom white balance in the settings, my footage finally looks true to the setting, and all cameras match. My only complaint is that the card has some serious, permanent wrinkles right out of the package due to the way it folds in its bag. This doesn't seem to affect the white balance I get. Also, I shoot with a full-frame DSLR (Canon 5D M3) and fixed focal length lenses. and since you have to fill the shot with the card, I wish I would have gotten a larger size. Overall, great buy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FINALLY This half color blind photographer can get the colors right and I don't think my kids are just saying they're right so they can get back to their electronics. Beats the pants off the cards I was using. With my Nikon D4 and D8xx I just lay it opened on the floor, set the WB to Pre in the menu, fill the frame with the QuickBalance's white side, hold down the WB button till Pre starts blinking in the viewfinder and press the shutter. gd will show up if you did it right. Doesn't take up much space either. A must have tool.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great but arrives damaged This product works great. Excellent for setting white balance and exposure, however, I was disappointed in the way it was shipped. It arrives scrunched together inside of tough, sharp plastic. Upon un-scrunching and taking off the plastic, the surface on both sides was dented, punctured, scratched, and looks horrible. B & H was kind enough to refund me for this reason, so technically, for a free product , this is 5 stars. Hopefully there is a change made in either the manufacturer's packaging of the product and/or the shipping department's packaging so future customers do not have to experience what I experienced. I have never seen a Grey Panel damaged like this before in all my photo and video shoots.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for students I don't think a single person in my entire studio photo class didn't rush off to buy this after seeing how awesome & compact this was, not to mention how cool we looked when whipping it out of the convenient little pouch. It also makes a pretty awesome make-shift frisbee when you are bored waiting between shots. Seriously though, super useful, very sturdy, easy to fold, got here fast, and it's always with me now. I don't think I'll ever buy a different one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and accurate I've used a 4x5 Kodak gray card for over 20 years. It has seen better days and I thought it was a good time to replace it. This QuikBalance Collapsible Gray panel is easy to use and accurate. If you've every used any pop-out reflectors (such as Westcott) this works the same way. A flick of the wrist to unfold and twist with two hands to close. It appears to be durable and, as a bonus, the white side can be used as a small reflector.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and Effective There's really not much to say. I wanted a compact grey/white card for white balancing my Lumix GX7. Something compact that I could keep in my camera bag. This is exactly what I was looking for and exactly what I expected. I've purchased other products from Impact photo equipment through B&H. I like their products - so the decision was easy. It was just over $ so very affordable and includes a carrying case.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Exactly what you'd expect It's a grey exposure balance card, and a white color balance card made of a cloth-like material. It folds with some difficulty. Exactly as you'd expect - i.e. it works, is cheap, and is portable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pocket size I have this 12 inch and the 22 inch. This 12in i can fold up in put in my pocket. Very easy to use and carry. If you want to save some time I would recommend the 22in because it is a much larger surface area and easier to get an accurate reading. This is really a good product, very easy and fast.
