    Default Gray Cards *Added example pics*

    Hello, I have been reading up on gray cards lately and decided that I need one. Do you use one? What size would you reccommend? Thanks!

    I just went to my local camera store and got an 18% grey card, cardboard 8x11.

    I was looking into an expodisc.

    Thanks for the responses ladies. I went out and got one last night! Can't wait to try it out! Just a note...I hit up a local camera shop and just picked up the first 18% gray card I saw. Got to the register and the guy asked if I was using it for film. Nope digital. He explained that there are different cards for film vs. digital. I had no clue! Just a heads up incase anyone is thinking of buying one!

    I have the lastolight folding grey card as well. I love it, and use the reverse side for white balance when I need too. It works perfectly. folds up really small and can be used to bounce light. I got mine for about 30$ at a local camera store,

    it's used to fix white balance when you're PPing. and it's also used for setting custom white balance in camera when you're shooting.
