Best White Balance tool for 5D mark2
May 12, 2010

I purchased a gray target from Lastolite and did a custom white balance. Did not get good results (images posted here). Is there something better for Canon's . Guys with Nikon swear by this thing but not for me. What is a good white balance tool for me to use? I'm shooting raw and I know I can try to get dead on with DPP but it's never quite right or it takes forever to get close. Any suggestions?

First image is with the target, second is after custom white balance in DPP.
