WhiBal G7 Pocket Card Reviews

I have several

I have these in my studio and all my camera bags. They have several sizes but the small one is just fine. I panic when I forget to use one, that's why I have several. In they studio I do a custom white balance and use this as a back up. These are great on location because we do portraits and skin tones are critical for us.

I never use my camera without it

I legitimately cannot believe how useful this card is. I do photo and video, and I stick this in front of my face or whatever I'm shooting to do white balance. Every time it works incredibly well; I am shocked at how much this thing has helped my workflow. I mainly shoot/record smaller scale objects with a 100mm macro lens, but even for larger shots the credit card sized version works just fine. I can't speak for every camera, but as long as the card is in the middle of the frame and in focus, my EOS R has no trouble using it to set the white balance.

Take one shot in the light conditions with a WhiBal and then your image with the card. It makes fine tuning white balance literally in a click with post processing. The card's size makes it easy to take with you on the go.

Nice size.

Perfect size to carry for quick shoots when not carrying much equipment

Convenient. Not perfect

I like this product. It's very well suited to tweak your WB once you download images to your editor. I've also used it to create custom WB on scene; it's not ideal for this due to the size but you can make it work. Size is very convenient and it literally lives in my wallet.

Perfect size

So small I can take it with me all the time and get quick readings without slowing down.

Great Grey Card

Bought as a replacement after losing my old one. Perfect size to fit in a pocket. White balancing is always great.

Does the Job

The WhiBal G7 White Balance Card is great for slipping into a pack or pocket. The small size lets me take it anywhere, but it is big enough to do what I need it to do. The card seems to be made from a durable material, so I expect it to last a long time.

Yes, it will fit "most" wallets. Some wallets have smaller credit card slots which is beyond me.

Why is it so small??
Asked by: Lee
All you need for white balance measurement is a small spot - and this card is perfect! Also - It's called a White Balance "Pocket Card" because it small enough to carry around.

question

My canon xti 400D says to use a sheet of white paper. Will this enhance my white balance even more or throw it off since it's gray?
Asked by: Oliver
In Live View and with the Histogram active on your camera's LCD, aim and move the camera over the white surface (i.e. wall, etc) until the collection of graphical vertical bars are in the centre of the histogram. The tighter the width along the x-axis of the group of bars the closer your reading will be to a true grey card. This method may take more time, but try it if you don't have a grey card handy. If you do have a grey card, take it to your paint store and grab a couple of free flat or eggshell finished paint chip cards matching the grey card and keep it in your wallet or camera bag for emergency use. By all means, buy the WhiBal reference card which is as close to accuracy as one can achieve. I have the 3.5 x 6" version and it works for my purposes.
