For professional camera operators and videographers a normal white balance is rarely acceptable anymore. The Vortex Media WC3 WarmCards 3.0 White Balance Reference System is a sophisticated set of white balance cards that make it easy to get a warmer (or cooler) white balance, and then to keep the modified white balance consistent throughout the shoot -- with precision. WarmCards provide the fastest, easiest, and most consistent way of getting the warmer, more pleasing skin tones that clients and audiences prefer. No gels, no filters, no special lighting, no extra time color-correcting in post, and they work with all professional TV and video camcorders. If you can white balance, you can Warm Balance. Once you've seen the difference WarmCards can make, you'll probably never use an ordinary white balance again. WarmCards are used regularly on just about every network news magazine, nightly news program, and all the major cable channels. If you watch TV, you've seen the effects of WarmCards in action. Literally thousands of television camera operators, videographers, and digital photographers around the world use WarmCards.

WarmCards are strong and durable. They won't get bent, folded, dirty, faded, or dog eared no matter how you use them. They are 100% waterproof, easily wiped clean, and the matte finish reduces reflections. Every set of WarmCards includes a convenient carrying case. Using WarmCards is just as easy as white balancing on a normal white card. Just aim the camera at the WarmCard . . . press the WB button on your camera. . . and you're ready to start shooting with a better white balance. The idea is simple. When you set your white balance using one of the WarmCards you are calibrating the colorimity of the camera so that it starts at a baseline neutral setting that matches the lighting conditions that exist at that place and that time -- and then you are adding a certain amount of "warming" to the white balance so that you get warmer and richer colors.
