About ExpoImaging ExpoDisc

Get accurate color in difficult lighting with the patented ExpoDisc, the fast and easy digital white balance filter. Simply read and set white balance with the ExpoDisc in place before shooting and you'll reduce or eliminate the need for post-capture color adjustments.

Get the white balance solution that is quickly becoming the preferred method of achieving accurate color balance for professional photographers today.

Here is how it works:
Varying levels of colorcast typically occur in digital photography and require compensation as part of the process to create a photograph with good color fidelity.

Until now, photographers have had to rely on gray/white cards to solve this problem. The ExpoDisc is an easy to use custom white balance solution that eliminates the inconvenience and inconsistencies of other methods.

It is a neutral diffusion filter that gathers ambient light and passively transmits 18% of it through to your camera's light meter, effectively producing a "gray frame".

You then set a custom white balance using the "gray frame" that results in accurate color in most lighting conditions. Your camera essentially compensates for and neutralizes the colorcast it sees through the ExpoDisc.

I LOVE the ExpoDisc !

I take hundreds of pictures in night indoor settings with difficult lighting conditions - multi-colored lights, and mixed lighting sources. Even though I have a great Canon EOS 20D camera and several very nice lenses, I still had a terrible time with white balance with people looking too gold or gold-green or red. After each session I would spend 8-12 and more hours correcting all the pictures in Photoshop. With the ExpoDisc, and carefully using it following the instructions that came with it...

I take hundreds of pictures in night indoor settings with difficult lighting conditions - multi-colored lights, and mixed lighting sources. Even though I have a great Canon EOS 20D camera and several very nice lenses, I still had a terrible time with white balance with people looking too gold or gold-green or red. After each session I would spend 8-12 and more hours correcting all the pictures in Photoshop. With the ExpoDisc, and carefully using it following the instructions that came with it, and the camera settings, my pictures are now coming out great right out of the camera, saving me hours of post processing work. My experience with digital cameras is that all of them are difficult to get the white balance right, and the ExpoDisc is the best tool I have found to solve this problem. One of the neatest things is that you can use the ExpoDisc as a lens cap, so it is always handy for use to set the white balance.

Falls off every UV Filter I tried

I tried to put this on after the UV filter, but it kept on falling off. Tried different UV filters to try to get more for it to hold onto, but no luck.

Essential for good white balance

I was happily suprise how easy and precise the white balance calibration could be done with EXPOD52. Can't live without it and going to buy one more. :)

Expo Disc is Very Cool

By

from Michigan  -  Photo Enthusiast

I saw the expodisc last year and thought it would be neat, but did not purchase it. I just bought it and love it. I should had gotten it sooner. It fits in your pocket, take it out, hold it over the lens and set your custom white balance. It is that fast. I use it for indoors at church and for weddings. I don't think it is needed for outdoors.

Execellent White Balance Tool

By

from Sellersville  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Great for white balance in the field. Replacement for a white balance card that's awkward to carry. Also great when you don't want to ask the subject to hold a card. For studio work, I use a Porta Brace White Balance Card. The ExpoDisc easily clips into the lens that I use most of the time. Slight disadvantage: it neasures incident not reflected light. The camera has to be pointed at the light source. I'll do some testing to see if there's a big difference between incident and reflected. Good gadget to have in the pack I hike with.

Better than Auto!

By

from Tallahassee, FL  -  Pro Photographer

Indoors with natural light, I think it really works great! I'm still getting the hang of it outside in natural light conditions. Even though it's the neutral one, my results still seem really warm when used outside. I will there was a neck strap on the disc itself instead of on the case.

Questions about this item:

michele F  Hi, does this fit on 50mm lens?
Andrew R  This item fits lenses with a 67mm diameter filter thread.
Shopper  With this white balance filter do I have to white balance my Nikon 5000 camera. How does this work?
MELODY H  This filter is for custom setting your white balance, telling the camera what white is. You don't leave it on the camera. Go to your custom white balance for presetting. Put the filter over the lens, then point the camera at the scene and take a picture. Look at your manual to see how to get to your custom white balance preset. If you didn't have this filter, you could just set the camera to custom preset, and point to something white and take the picture. It won't record the picture, but it will tell the camera that is white. Putting this filter over the lens and setting custom white balance is more accurate.
