    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
