Overview

ExpoDisc, the original white balance filter gets even better.  Set white balance, meter for exposure and dust map your sensor with the only calibrated and certified 18% transmission incident light metering filter.

We invented the digital white balance filter with the original ExpoDisc and established it in the market as the premium white balance tool by individually testing and certifying every ExpoDisc. Now, ExpoDisc 2.0 introduces user-selectable warming filters (gels), an improved mounting design, and a new lower price-point.

  • Quickly set white balance for photo and video
  • Includes User Selectable Warming Filters (Gels)
  • Meter 18% Incident Exposure
  • Dust Map Your Image Sensor
  • Made in USA - Hand Calibrated for Accuracy

Use the ExpoDisc to Save Time Editing White Balance in Photo and Video

Whether shooting in RAW or JPEG, photographers using ExpoDisc to white balance their images save valuable time in photo editing software.  When used to set a custom white balance, the ExpoDisc consistently produces excellent color in natural, artificial, and studio lighting, and it even excels in difficult mixed lighting environments.

The ExpoDisc is far easier to use than any gray card, white card or calibration target. Simply place the ExpoDisc in front of your lens and capture the incident light while setting your camera’s custom white balance. Using an ExpoDisc custom white balance will virtually eliminate the need for RAW or JPEG post-capture color adjustments.

How does the ExpoDisc work?

Your camera’s internal light meter measures the color temperature of light passing through the ExpoDisc to make an “in-camera” color adjustment. This color adjustment is applied to all subsequent images taken using the custom white balance from the selected light reading.

Or, if you prefer shooting in RAW file format and batch processing later, simply capture a reference image through the ExpoDisc to use with your image processing software.

Will the ExpoDisc Work with My Camera?

The ExpoDisc can be used with any digital camera with a custom white balance capability, including all digital SLRs and most point & shoot cameras. The ExpoDisc works with all major camera brands, including: Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, Samsung, Lumix, and Leica.

ExpoDisc 2.0 Design Attaches Securely to Lenses and Threaded Filters

The ExpoDisc 2.0’s new filter mount utilizes a new button-activated spring design which allows the ExpoDisc to securely attach to lenses and even to low-profile threaded lens filters.

What is a custom white balance?

Even the best digital cameras struggle with consistently reproducing accurate color. Images shot with incorrect white balance may have unnatural looking red, yellow or blue tints that are time consuming and difficult to correct.

To help photographers cope with this problem, digital camera manufacturers have designed their cameras with multiple white balance functions, including Custom White Balance, Automatic White Balance (AWB), and factory Preset color temperature settings for Sun, Shade, Tungsten, Fluorescent, Flash, and Cloudy. When shooting, photographers must select one of the camera's white balance settings to apply in-camera, or photograph a neutral reference tool to apply later in post processing if using the RAW file format.

Unfortunately, Auto White Balance (AWB) often produces maddeningly inconsistent color results, and the color temperatures assigned to the camera's Preset white balance settings often do not reflect real world lighting conditions, causing a color-cast.



Using the Custom White Balance function remains the most reliable way to consistently reproduce accurate, balanced color in digital cameras. The custom white balance function eliminates the inconsistencies of AWB and the gross generality of factory Preset color temperatures because it allows the user to calibrate the camera to an exact color temperature at image capture. The custom white balance procedure requires a neutral reference like the ExpoDisc to measure the color of light accurately.
