    Chris,

    What have you been using for a white balance card? And are the white balance cards for exposure as well as balancing color? I remember when the whole white balance process started, you would use the white balance card for only that. If you put it next to a 18% grey card which were used for film cameras they were different. I don’t ever recall ever hearing anyone at the time state that a white balance card was also good for getting an exposure reading from. I have you found that today, the white balance card does both?

    Yes, Mark. I have cards that do both, exposure and white balance. Very handy. I hand them out at the workshops for participants to use and keep ;)
