White balance problem

Recommended Posts


I have got a colorchecker passport and  used to click on the grey blocks to try and get an accurate white balance and I recently bought a JJC GC-1 white balance card kit in the hope that i could use it for a one click white balance solution because it is an 18% grey.

The problem is that it is bringing back images that are too warm.

If i use it with my elinchrom lights in studio it sets the white balance to 5700 which is waaaay to high. I am expecting it to be more in the 4800 - 5100 range.

My monitor is calibrated with an i1 Display Pro so the monitor is good, but i need help with what to do / put in the shot to get more accurate and consistent white balance readings.

I would appreciate any advice you might have.
