    Default custom white balance gadget

    Hello,

    I would like to know for badminton shooting, do any of you use the custom white balance function? If so, I want to know if there is any inexpensive white balance gadget out there to customize the white balance, so that I don't need to adjust it every single time in lightroom or photoshop. I googled around and found the following:

    1) Digital grey card 18%
    2) white balance lens cap

    Did anyone use any of above and what's the brand you can recommand? Or if there is any other way to do that?

    Thank you very much!

    Hi Ricky,
    the guys had somewhat touched, sniffed, chewed, bit and swallowed on this issue, in the thread below:

    Hi Ctjcad,

    Thanks for the info!!!!! Now, I wonder which grey card I should get. There are so many in the market. I just don't know which to choose.

    By the way, ctcad, which DSLR camera and lens you are using for badminton?

    Just curious.

    Thanks again.

    Hi sprachrokrke,

    Thanks for the info. I read somewhere that printer paper can't produce the good result when compare with grey card or expodisc. Expodisc just too expensive and it's out of my consideration. Thanks again.

    i am using d700 with my combo badminton lens 35-70 and 70-200 both 2.8 ( i strongly recommend lens with build in motor )
    white sheet is enough to set proper wb , but exposure must be lowered by 2.5 EV to have correct exposure . grey card is ready to use out of the box .
    In badminton setting correct exposure is easy , because light environment doesn't change , its enough to set it once and later you can slightly correct exposure during developing raw files .
    here you have my pics from badmitnon match between Poland and England
    iso 1600 , 1/500 , 2.8 or 3.2

    Nice picture!!! However, I'm not too familiar with exposure. Are you talking about the metering? The scale that you see for the + and -?

    Polsih national team has now two coaches from Korea and we can see results

    >>>> fast exactly i am talking about metereing , at the begining of tournament i make few shots of player face to determine amount of light and when i found optimal value of iso , aperture and time i am ready to take pictures , i always make pictures i raw mode , because I can later easy correct or set white balance and exposure .

    hi sprachrohke, i'm fairly new to dlsr photography. is it a standard to lower the exposure by 2.5 EV when using white sheet?

    So you also use grey card to preset the WB and shoot it raw, right?

    Sprachronhrke, good photo & the wb is also good. thanks for your sharing.
    Do you mean to set -2.5EV when taking the wb reference photo?

    BTW, just out of my curiosity, the net on your photo http://picasaweb.google.pl/epuzer/Pl...11699055947906 is very clear. Are all the photos show similar situations. Compare to other cameras, some of them can perform like this http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...4&postcount=34. I don't know the reason. I wonder why the net can be filtered out?
