Review: Hercules Micro Disc White Balance Correction
Have you ever encountered any problems when shooting indoors? I guess the majority of you would have problems with the White Balance and sometimes due to the ambient light, you have pictures too orangey, or greenish. I am not surprised as throughout the time shooting when I shoot in indoor places such as a Birthday Party, or a dinner in a Restaurant, I would definitely have a White Balance issue.
So what do most of you guys do? The easiest way is to shoot pictures in raw, and correct the White Balance during Post Processing. That means, after shooting, you will still need to spend time at home to correct the White Balance. Post Processing may not be a fun thing to do especially if you have 100 to 1000 pictures to post process.
I didn’t enjoy the post processing part and I end up shooting as little as possible so when I am home, I don’t have so many pictures to post process, which therefore, I have missed many nice pictures which I have encountered.
Fortunately, I found a new product, the Micro Disc White Balance Correction. This product is similar to the CBL Lens White Balance Correction. As the sales person told me that I could save time on my post process, I immediately purchased it. In fact, after using it for the first 3 – 4 session, I felt happy as I did not have to spend time at home to post process the shots. All I need to do was to do a 3 minutes setup for the White Balance Correction and I am ready for a shoot, and when I am back home, I don’t have to waste much of precious time to do the editing.
Setting up the White Balance Correction was easy. All I need to do is to take a shot of the Micro Disc with Auto White Balance, and set the custom white balance in my camera. Yes, that is how simple it is, and I am ready to shoot with the correct accurate White Balance. Using this Micro Disc was simply a breeze!
