Just thought I'd mention - if you're over in the UK then I picked up
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000RGPUKM for £15 - it's similar to the Multidisc above - a bit cheaper (what does that work out at $25 or so?) - one less colour - but you get a black so you can use it as a flag.

Great tip, Chris. Much thanks.

You left out the obvious reason for a calibration target, namely calibration! I use mine to calibrate my camera before a shoot in mixed lighting to get the correct white balance. However, thanks for the exposure idea.

I recently bought a large Rocket Air Blaster to clean my camera's sensor. It had acquired some very distracting crud, and I know how important it is to never touch the sensor. A few squirts of air and now I don't need to use the blemish tool in Lightroom.
