    Best option at a low priced grey/white card

    posted by dunantar on 02/05/2014 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Being a professional in the field of image creation (Photo & video) makes this item absolutely indispensable. You can find lots of balance cards most of them are very very expensive. If you don't care about perfection but want to do things properly, you...
    Cons:
    It is not a professional calibrated one so don't try to get from it a prefect accurate absolute professional measure. It could ...

    Just as good as the more expensive ones.

    posted by bigenius on 02/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    This is a great quality product that competes with the much more expensive ones where all you pay for is the brand. I've been using a few over the years and this is as good as them. A large plus is that the frame is made of metal and not plastic. Do what i...
    Cons:
    I really don't have anything negative to say about the product itself. Could mention the carrying case though, it's not as good...

    Foldable focusing screen

    posted by skocko76 on 11/27/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Multifunctional utility! It can be used as focusing screen (place it in the same plane as your model's eyes to get a better focus through the eyepiece), whitebalance graycard and as a light reflector (even though it's quite small for that)
    Cons:
    Mine came with a stain on it's white surface... not a big deal, but still a minus. Too small for reflector, not used much as f...

    OK!

    posted by Muffe on 04/06/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Bigger than I thought. Grey side is good for focusing, obviously. Other side is white so it's great for taking white balance too. Durable.
    Cons:
    Bigger than I thought. A bit too expensive. Carrying puch is a bit too big and it could also be designed for the focusing scr...

    Does what it's supposed to

    posted by etikka on 12/28/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    - Focusing is quick and works in situations where there's less than optimal amount of light. - The bag has enough size that it's easy to put the screen in - The screen feels quite sturdy. - The white balance is quite correctly determined.
    Cons:
    - The bag had some loose strings - The white side of the screen was a bit dirty and the stains didn't come off. It didn't affec...

    Does it's job

    posted by substitute on 07/22/2010 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    This kind of white balance target comes in handy from time to time when taking photos in weird mixed lighting conditions. The build quality in this one seems to be just fine and the metal frame makes it safe to bend (I hope). You can fold it down to save sp...
    Cons:
    I could manage with a smaller one. I'd also appreciate if the bag was for the folded-down size.

    Essential item for enthusiast photographers

    posted by leonardlow on 10/22/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    * Amazing, strong, bendy frame! * FILM grey card (darker than a digital grey card) with target for pre-setting manual focus. * Portable mini white REFLECTOR. Excellent for macro work in bright sunlight.
    Cons:
    * Not a digital grey card; digital exposures will be *very* slightly overexposed when spot-metered off this card.

    Gray/White Card

    posted by noldy on 01/04/2009 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:
    The price is really a bargain compare to other stores that sell the same item like this. I read all the reviews of those who bought this before me here and they are all scared of folding it. So, what I did when I got mine i took a peak of what material it's...
    Cons:
    The only con here is the bag. It came with a bag that's decent but I really want a smaller bag since I know that mine will not ...
