Greetings to all,
I've been experimenting with exposure balance and white balance for a while now and I'm debating whether to stick to grey card for white balance and exposure metering, OR, to splurge and buy an Expodisc or a Color Pro Portrait?
My aim is to ask those who have used these tools and advise me which is the easiest to use? Example, lets say I'm standing on a bridge and want to shoot a distant landmark. I zoom in and frame the subject nicely, then suddenly realise I can't use my grey card to correct my white balance because the lighting where I'm standing and where I'm shooting is different so the results from my grey card will not be accurate? The same situation applies when travelling on a train through Europe or on a bus tour. Based on this an Expodisc sounds ideal.
But according to the Expodisc website, its not accurate when using a flash on the subject? I'm really confused by the label and disclaimers about what lighting situations you can use it in. Incident and reflected light, aren't they all the same if you're pointing and metering at the subject? Hence my mentioning the Color Right Pro, it is bulky and possibly a lot more fragile and breakable, but according to the website it claims it can be used anywhere and in any situation.
Can someone please advise me what tool I should be using and how I should use it please?
