    I have downgraded to one of those super compact and rather basic digital
    cameras.

    I recently found my old Kodak Neutral Card. It is about 25 years old!

    Will it have changed significantly in refelectivity (10% and 90%
    nominally) in that time? What about colour?

    Is such a test card of any use with a supercompact digital camera?

    Apart from setting the white balance I can't think of how I might use
    it. The 90% is too bright and the 10% too dark to approximate to a
    scene.

    Should be 18% and that should match the average scene as determined by
    Kodak. Those things can get expensive, I'd save it or look for
    someone who wants one.

    Can be used the same way as it was in the film era.

    Are these old Kodak Neutral Test Cards still available?
    I can't see any being offered for sale.

    Will a 25-year old Kodak test card have disolored?

    B&H lists the Kodaks as back-ordered, but they have a number of other
    brands in stock. One would hope that Kodak was up to printing something
    that would hold color for 25 years.
