Neat and handy when walking around
on 26 May 2011
The perfect size to slip-in to the case of a compact camera and being plastic they are water-resistant and wipe-clean.
I'm pleased with this purchase: white balance and exposure can be quickly set when out and about, when previously I would not have had a grey card handy. My images are much better exposed as a result.
One mark off for the ridiculously large lanyard, though, which is cumbersome. Thankfully I had a spare Canon wrist-strap handy which is the perfect size for binding the cards.
Unfortunately the grey and black cards are beginning to show signs of wear.
Their tone surfaces are laminated onto a white core card and where the cards rub together when stored the grey and black surfaces are wearing-through and revealing the white core, leading to a mottled appearance ( I've attached a photo to the product gallery ). It's not yet sufficient to affect metering but is disappointing.
