Comparing the results of white balancing with the X-Rite Colorchecker and a random piece of paper, you’ll notice immediately that the clip white balanced with the random piece of paper is contaminated with a distinct yellowish cast – in the shadows, in the highlights, in the cigarette lighter, in the cologne and everywhere else for that matter – while the X-Rite one is neutral. Going through all the pieces of white paper scattered throughout the house, some are bluish tinted while others are yellowish tinted, so it can be a crap shoot. Safest bet – use a white balance card!
