    To be honest i have never ever used it. If there is any WB issues i just adjust it in lightroom.

    I'm not sure you want to laminate it....
    why? why not take 5 secodns and get a very accurate WB...then when you pop it open in lightroom, you have something very reliable to sample from. just do one shot with the subject holding a grey card in each different lighting situation.

    :rofl:
    Sounds good, but i just like having something larger to work with. when i'm not using it it fits in my bag nicely so size really isn't an issue.

    Its just one more step that im not really up for honestly. Auto WB gets me close enough and it only takes two seconds in lightroom for any final adjustments. It might not be perfect but its close enough for what i would like. Some day maybe i will start using it more... who knows!
