    This is a nifty little accessory that helps set the proper white balance on your dSLR's. The Canon requires more steps to set it as opposed to the Nikon, but the end result is the same. I introduced Will (jst1tym) to this when i mentioned his white balance was a little off and he's been using it ever since. Sure one can fix it with photoshop, but if you can do it in camera it'll save you time.


    I've used other forms of white balance accessories and this it the best/easiest that i've found. The Expodisc requires you to position yourself where the subject is and aim at the light source to set the white balance. The Expodisc didn't do as well as the CRP when there were different light sources either.

    +100 here! It's now actually an automated response to use it for just about all occasions both indoors and out. It virtually eliminates the guesswork of getting the correct white balance for the exposure,and saves a lot of time. When I first started using it I was pleasantly surprised at how much more natural the colors were. It kinda reminded me of the Tide commercial where they compare the whites next to each other and the differences between them...2-thumbs up on this product :thumb::thumb:

    the Nikon is easier than the Canon.

    Set the WB for "PRE"
    Hold the WB button down for a few seconds until "PRE" flashes.
    Hold the CRP on the lens
    Press the shutter release
    Depending on if you had the correct exposure, you should get "Good" or "NO Gd"
    Now you're ready to shoot.

    I don't know if my Canon is different from those listed, however, with mine I just set the menu to white balance, select custom white balance, aim the camera at desired item and hold CRP over lens and snap a photo, select that photo from a menu and shoot, wellah (sp?)

    the extra step is selecting the photo from the menu. the nikon, it gets set once you release the shutter with the CRP on the lens.

    Yea, without selecting the photo from the menu it will only photograph the picture at 11-1/2 megapixels. To get the full 21 megapixels I have to select from the menu..
