The easiest, most cost-effective aid
for balancing digital images!

- Original QPCard-


Even with correctly set and calibrated computers, software and monitors, you must balance a digital image against the monitor. A guaranteed neutral gray surface in the image simplifies balancing.

It is complicated to carry around a cumbersome grey card and position at a suitable place in the subject. In addition, the grey card becomes thumbed, dirty and faded from the light, so that after a while it is no longer neutral grey.

QPcard solves these problems. A pack of 3 QPcards are packed in a protective cardboard envelope.The cards have adhesive on the back so that they can be attached to virtually any surface. The grey surface is completely neutral and reflects 18% light. A white and black patch can be used for contrast adjustment. In addition, the card can be used as a dimensional reference.

- QP 4-Step Grey Scale Card -


The QPcard 4-Step Grey Scale has been developed with the help of experienced users of the original QPcard 101. The QPcard 4-Step Grey Scale is much bigger, 9.6” x 6.7”, than the original QPcard and made of thick cardboard. It has four fields, for better distribution along the grey scale. Furthermore it has replaced the black with a dark grey field. Black is difficult to adjust anyway, so four fields not to close to the end points of the tonal scale are much more effective. These four fields work exceptionally well with Adobe Photoshop’s ability to correct the balance using four points under “Curves”.

All fields are perfectly neutral, measuring L*a*b values 35*0*0, 48*0*0, 80*0*0 and 95*0*0. The spectral response is almost flat, making the card perfect in all light conditions without causing any metameric problems. There are no fluorescent whitening agents involved, making the card perfect for Custom White Balance Setting in any light.

Using the QP102 4-Step Grey Scale Card is a simple four-step process:
• Position QP102 next to the subject and shoot a reference image.
• Remove QP102 and shoot all the images in the same lighting conditions.
• Open reference image in your image software and balance against the QP102.
• Save the settings and apply to the rest of the images taken in the same light.
