Subject: Re: [Leica] (Handy) Grey card

A nice portable grey card is the palm of your hand, open up one stop
depending on base skin colour and cleanliness. Calibration really does not
take that long and you only have to do it once. They are generally always at
hand, easily washed and maintained with repair facilities in every major and
minor community you can think of. They are so handy, I never leave home
without taking a couple along.
