So Lastolite makes a 12% reflectance gray surface
So Thom Hogan has gotten enough photographers to believe his "meters don't see 18% gray" blog post that Lastolite now makes a 12% gray surface to meter from.
I believe this darker surface will result in the camera setting the exposure dangerously closer to clipping than a standard 18% gray card. Remember, once clipped, it's gone.
White balancing will also be more difficult with this card as there is less data to work with at the dark end of a raw file.
Is this really what we want our digital sensors to deal with?
