    Kodak Grey Cards

    I have a set of the 18% grey card with instructions for using them for white balance and for exposure. There are 2 at 10x8 and 1 at 5x4, but I thought that if anyone would like one for their pen photography I could cut down the 10x8 to make 8 5x4 cards making 9 5x4 cards total if there are nine people who would like one. I don't want anything in return except for someone to either photocopy or scan the instruction for others to use. Any takers or do they get forgotten about for another 20 years.

    Thanks for that, one is yours, give it till Friday and if nobody else want the rest then you may as well have a 10x8.

    If you send me your address I will get it posted early next week.

    I'm not sure that many people will know what a grey card is Peter.

    For those that don't know, it is a card in a specific shade of grey, from which you take a meter reading on your camera. It makes the difference between a mediocre exposure and a good one. You'll be glad you've got one if you take up Peter's offer. It will change your pen photography for the better for ever.

    No problem Chas. It might be better to scan as then it could be sent by email.

    That particular shade is known as neutral grey because in black and white it gives just that it sees it as white.

    They are handy for setting the colour balance when dealing with artificial light by adjusting the colour values in the camera or by leaving the card in the photo so you can correct in photoshop especially if you are a raw shooter
