What is the difference between a ExpoDisc White Balance filter and a ExpoDisc Warm Balance filter? And where can I findone that's52 mm for my Canon 50mm lens? I see 58mm and bigger, but no 52mm:!:

Details at http://www.expodisc.com/index.php including where to buy.

The Warm Balance give better skin tones for portraits.

The ExpoDisc Classic White Balance Filter is available in 52mm although it isn't very serious if the filter is too large as you only need it on the lens for a few seconds while taking the white balance reading, then you put it away.

I believe now they also make one that is just a large square, in both the white balance and warm balance. You do have to hold it tight against the lens so no outside light gets in. Personally they are just way too pricy for me when I can get great white balance with a $2 gray card and I also shoot RAW mode so I don't worry too much about it unless I'm doing a portrait in my studio.

I've found that taking a custom WB setting from an amazon.com (green colored) reciept give me excellent skin tones.

Thanks to everyone for the advice. I know they are pricey, but from what I've read they really do a great job.
