DGK Color Tools Gray Kard Standard Reviews

White Balance Three Ways

The DGK Color Tools Digital Gray Kard set is a functional, compact answer to setting white balance or determining white/black points. The lanyard may be attached or not, and it lets me hang the cards from my neck for quick access. The cards are big enough to work, small enough to go with me anywhere.

Too Small for Video

I got these for use with a Waveform Monitor on video shoots, which was a bad idea. They are too small to get an easy read or white-balance on set. They would do a fine job for people shooting in RAW, stills or video, who want to snap off a reference frame with the cards in shot for use in post-production grading. But when the exposure setting is more critical to achieve in-camera, a larger card is needed.

Not bad

They're a bit small, but nothing I could find was a good size, so these work well. I wish they were matte instead of slightly shiny, but again, they work well. For most jobs, I carry a larger X-rite grayscale card, but I needed something a bit smaller for a specific shoot. These fit the bill. If you're a commercial shooter, where color is extra critical, these probably shouldn't be your primary gray cards, but for all others, these work quite well.

Nice product. It is nice to have the lanyard so that I have it with me at all times and not having to hole punch my own.

This set of cards works well. Not sure why I don't see more photographers using them as it is very easy way to take all the guess work out of getting accurate skin tones.

Handy and light

The light card set is handy and very light and should last a very long time. The small size is good for location. I carry a close pin to display all three cards at the same time if I don’t have an extra pair of hands around. Just take a close up in the light your shooting in and set your white balance and you are off. I plan on getting a large set just for the studio. �I did use some very fine sandpaper on one side of the black card to dull it down a bit but that was my choice to do and don’t think I’ll do that to my set for the studio.

Easy to use,works great with my gear.
