Free photo rights lens cloth

    A couple of years ago AP gave away a cleaning cloth that doubled as an 18% grey card.

    Given the dearth of grey cards in local photo outlets and the cost of super ones on-line that won't fit in the bag, it would be good if AP distributed another cloth/grey card. Should not be too expensive to produce and easy to pack/distribute.

    What do you think?

    Yes, that's one of the more useful freebies, and another one will be handy. A couple of times I've gone to use mine, then realised it was in the other camera bag. There's a few of the freebies we've had over the last few years (the lenswrap was another) that I wouldn't mind seeiing repeated every 2-3 years, if AP are short of ideas...

    I think a cleaning cloth needs cleaning itself occasionally ... an action which is going to alter its hue and shade. There's very little point in deploying an "18% grey card" that isn't accurate.

    Thanks.... local Jessops did not have any grey cards (nor the other specialist shop in town): I tried to make one but it wasn't much good!. Looks like a trip to Amazon or maybe AP will come up with something.

    That would be great! (I'm loving my window diffuser btw!)

    Not one but two offerings would appear to be upcoming, a case of serendipity.

    The thing that I use the most is the fold up reflector that AP gave away some time ago.

    I still use mine but it's getting pretty shabby by now.

    Oh, please let it be a free D800, or better still D4. :D Actually, that would probably be the week I forget to buy a copy. :p
