Care to elaborate on that?
I think he is speaking of an 18% grey card that will set the white balance of auto set cameras to give a better image, rather than being over or under exposed.
arghh my camera phone is acting up my pics have been delayed yet again! dayummmmnnn
Bought Gigabyte GTX 460 SOC ... what a beauty
Running at stock clocks for now ... modding will soon follow
Interesting. Another ebay item, or are these available at places like the Egg?
You could probably get it on ebay. You just want a 18% grey card. That one is pretty cheap and folds up nicely. On most DSLRs and some other cameras you can manually set the correct white balance using that or even just a sheet of plain white paper. the camera uses it to try and work out the correct colour temperature for the lighting.
And yes you can use it to manually set your exposure as well.
I did a little searching and found a few. I was going to stop by Home Depot to pick up a few things after work - I was thinking of perusing the color swatches to see if I could find a few things.
BTW, I found this this morning (courtesy of MadShrimps):
Interesting read thanks
Got a new camera
Did you do the backlighting in the keyboard yourself?
that is no backlighting if my weak eyes dont trick me watch the gap beneath the escape button... the red light is flat?
it looks like a red mat thats gets layered behind the keys,indeed very nice
it is a red metal plate built into the keyboard

From another build
I am building a pc for a friend, Happened to have an Cooler Master Hyper 212+ in my hands. My camera was near, and already mounted on its tripod, then...
A macro lens was there too, then...
I am ashamed... why is the sub switch so low?
Right at that notch is perfect for most uses, but I'll crank it about half-way up for booming action scenes and stuff. Past 50% is crazy.
TOYS! got a used 25mw 532nm laser pointer for 5€ from a buddy, popped in 2 new AAA batteries and off we go! Playtime!
sorry for the blurryness, lasers look the best when its relatively dark
this one reminds me of the opening of Mc Gyver
the last one makes me look like an illuminated reptile
Some of yall take some seriously quality photos. I'm still new to photography and my camera isn't exactly professional grade. Nevertheless I blame the artist (aka me), not the tools...
Presenting an ancient Packard Bell 16-bit ISA slot sound card from 1984-1986:
These photos were taken with a 40W bulb backlighting the card.
BTW, I left the EXIF data intact (something I wouldn't usually do) in case anyone wants to make suggestions on settings to improve my shots.
