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.

I'd originally planned to purchase the EzyBalance gray panel, but it was out of stock when I made my purchase, so I opted for the Impact instead. It works, but the gray material has a rubbery coating that creases quite easily when folded. It doesn't affect the accuracy of the white balance, but it makes me wonder if the coating will fail over time. The EzyBalance also has a lifetime warranty on the rim while this does not. It works, but you can feel where some of the savings are made.

Does the job

By Frank M

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

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.

Portable, Small but expands to a perfect size

By psphotography

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

For me this is the perfect size white balance card. Great to be used on location or in studio.

For in studio this is great to take the first initial shot with my Canon 5D Mark IV and use the custom white balance setting. Post processing is not even necessary for white balance. Save time with this portable card and spend more time shooting the photos you love.

Product comes with a case that it folds up into for storage. Folding it back up the first time can be a pain but it's not hard to do.

Consistency matters

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

After receiving this, I was able to finally get a consistent look in my video interviews.

It's the first time I've been able to set up custom white balance and exposure with confidence and get rid of the guess work. Now I can set this thing up on a little tripod and set the exposure by myself (no need for a second person to stand in front of the camera).

18% grey backgound with a target so the autofocus works. Allows the white balance to correct for the color of light I am shooting in.

A no brainer for precision white balance made easy...

By Donna

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

I like the reversible white/gray "card" panel because it folds easily, is very lightweight, comes with a case, AND does a great job...not the first "Impact" product I've purchased, and won't be the last. The 12" panel is a good size for everyday shooting, and the gray side comes with white markings for easy focusing. Well made, good value...I'd buy it again if I needed to...

A Must Buy

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

This handy guy has taken us from "fixing it in post" which is always a pain, to getting it right the first time. Even better is that it's collapsable and fits in our kits. Simply a must for all camera kits.

Comments about Impact QuikBalance Collapsible 12" Gray Panel:

The quality of this item seems very good. I like how small it folds up. It will fit in most bags easily enough. If you are looking for a white or gray panel, this has both, and you can't go wrong with this one.
