    Hi all,

    Do both methods work about the same? I'm looking at getting a white balance lens cap for my 77mm lens and holding it for others??? Or should I get a card?
     
  2. I personally like the WhiBal cards and just hand them to my subject while I take the first image. They are compact and have white, black and grey cards combined.

    Thanks Gordon. Any advantage to the WhiBal over the Grey Kard that you know of?
     
  4. Better advertising? For what its worth, I too use the Whibal. Inexpensive (in absolute terms, but ridiculously expensive for what it is) and seems to work well when I am shooting raw. Easy to use and faster than the Expodisc which is even more expensive and something else to carry.

    Never heard about the other card you refer too so I can't comment on that one.
     
  5. Hey Gordon - new avatar? Nice couple. She is obviously the better half of the team, huh?
