Hmm well it's a relief to know the 'old guys' haven't put much effort into grey cards over the years either from the sounds of it! I really thought I would be shamed and pointed at like a loser confessing that I don't have one

So I guess I am wanting to be more controlled with my precious exposures and make sure the colours are able to be balanced correctly after scanning, and I figure if I start getting to know grey cards better, I can improve on both those levels?
