By use of the three cards from the kit, you can easily get a precise WB which can be used in your camera to shoot in JPG format, or later as a reference when RAW file editing in special software. The Genesis DGC is also useful to determine proper exposure in case of products or scenes which can affect light metering in camera.

Genesis Digital Grey Card as a light metering reference. The built-in camera's light metering is calibrated to middle gray, which corresponds to the surface which reflects exactly 18% of incoming light. In most cases, this method of light metering works fine, and is proper for popular scenes. Unfortunately, in some extreme lighting conditions or scenes with complex lighting, the built-in light metering may set exposure parametres which are not adequate. For example: when taking a photo of white or black surface, it will be exposed to middle tone. The solution is to set the exposure parametres manualy by metering the light reflected from the grey card.
