If I'm looking for consistent color in narrative ...

If I'm looking for consistent color in narrative film across different shotcomps, does it make more sense to aim my camera at a WB card and set the WB in-camera (which will change the Kelvin temperature each time for each setup), or, would it be better for consistency across multiple shots/lighting setups, to set the WB to the color temp of the lights I'm using (5600K, daylight) for the in-camera WB, and then set the WB in post, by using the WB eyedropper, clicking on the same gray card recorded in frame, used w/ different lighting setups?
Asked by: Kevin
The standard for video and white balance is to set the camera using a custom white balance from the Vello White Balance Card Set (Large). That is if the camera allows a custom white balance.

Are these cards waterproof? I'd like to take them diving.
Asked by: Luis S.
While they are coated for normal wear and tear, these are not made for underwater use. I would instead recommend Amphibico Aluminum White Balance & Color Chart - 7 x 11 (B&H # AMACWB0711) which is specifically made for diving. A low end solution would be a simple piece of duct tap on a fin.
