    I have to admit I don't use one for my pen photos and it is a long time since I used one. I used to use them mostly for lighting ratios and they are brilliant if you print colour and use a colour analyser with the enlarger, with the advent of digital I shut down my darkrooms. The white side of the card reflects 90% and can be used to set white balance. They can be a great little tool.

    I am closing the offer now to those who have already asked for one. I will send an extra one to GeordieB and to Chas as they both offered to photocopy or scan the instruction for the others.

    I will get them all in the post next week.

    Chas has kindly scanned the Kodak Grey Card Instructions and Jim has put them in the tutorial section under Tips and Tricks.

    http://www.penturners.co.uk/misc/tutorials.php

    You might think this is a waste of time if you don't have your own Grey card and you would be correct, but you can make your own grey card if you really want.

    I am sure there are more tutorials to make a grey card and even if you don't have photoshop I am sure your printer software would help in getting a neutral grey, maybe not as accurately as photoshop, but if it helps to get your exposure or white balance better, then it's a bonus. I would still prefer a Kodak Grey Card over a home made one, but they can be expensive.

    If you try out the grey card, let us know if you think your images are better or not. Not everyone will get on with the grey card, I honestly don't think Jim or Vic will notice any significant difference in the quality of their images, they are already very good quality.
