    ExpoDisc

    Has anyone try or are using the ExpoDisc. Seems it might be a handy tool to have.

    Hi Paul, I have actually read a bit about it. Seems like it would come in pretty handy, but at $100, I think I'll stick with my Grey card and shoot in RAW!!!

    The camera shop where I deal has them on in the half price bin for several months - because nobody bought them, and they're trying to get rid of them.

    I suspect they are are somewhat of a gimmick.

    I had an Expodisc and only used it a couple of times.You are supposed to take your reference shot from the position of the object,etc. that you will be photographing for it to work properly.
    Easier to use a grey card.

    Have a guess :)

    Re: ExpoDisc

    They're hopeless when you're trying to use them in conjunction with fill flash (which is a lot of what I do), because you need to shoot into the ambient light to get the reference shot - and that is just plain awkward when flashes are involved.

    Grey card for me everytime!

    PS: I've got 2 of them -- and never use either of them!
