I bought this product because I didn't want to spend over 80 dollars for a like product. I figured if it was junk I wasn't out much money. To my surprise it was very easy to use and really helps you get the correct white balance. The only downside is the connector rings being made of plastic are hard to install on a few of my lenses and sometimes pop off when taking the cap off to shoot pics. If you're looking for an easy way to get the correct white balance this is a great tool. I actually use the larger cap for my smaller lenses by just holding it in place while I snap the test photo. This way I don't have to unscrew the cap to put on filters.

I got one of these off of eBay.
Does it work? Kind of.

/// UPDATE AFTER COMPARING TO EXPODISC
Just a few words to update this after comparing one of these to a legit expodisc.
Surprisingly, the performance of the discs both varied under different lighting.

In some cases, the cheapo does better than the expodisc!
I tried a bunch of different shots at home under some weird lighting conditions.
Normal warm CFLs (kinda yellow) with a huge green shower curtain in my bathroom. Really weird lighting.

I tried 2 different methods of setting the custom white balance for each disc (4 shots).
1) Point the camera at the light source / (sometimes moved to the position of the subject, I know you're supposed to but I was lazy)
2) Just put the cap on where I was going to take the photo.

The cheapo did WAY better than the expodisc at home when I simply put the cap on to take a custom frame.
It did not do that great when I moved to the subject position or pointed the camera at the light source.

The expodisc sucked at my house, BUT it did do better at a low-lit party (very warm lighting) I went to.

Conclusion: Get both, and use both. Do some test shots for the best result! Each one has its uses...
This is just me personal opinion on reviewing the photos. You might like the results of one better than the other.
I found that for $10, it's a good tool to throw in the bag, especially for setting WB for videos.

// Original review below

It's a few bucks and it gets you in the ball park in really tough lighting conditions - BUT!
It's still not very accurate.

Not sure if it's worth it or not.

This is a great product, and makes a huge difference in the quality of your photos. It comes with two parts, one screws on to the end of your lens, the other is the actual white cap. I have noticed that for some wide angle lenses that you cannot keep the attachment on the lens as it may stick out too much, but I haven't had that issue with my other lenses. Also if you are using a lens hood, you may find it a slight hastle to take the hood on and off to balance the camera, but it is definately worth the better picture. Also for the price you really can't go wrong.

This lens cap worked great for getting a correct white balance outdoors, but for some reason, whenever I use it indoors, all my photos come out with a blueish cast to them. I wish I knew if I was just doing something wrong, but I followed exactly what my instruction manual said to do.

not worth two cents. Its not opaque enough and the plastic deviates from center to outside edge in thickness. which does not allow the camera to get a good white balance.

This product works in most situations.
including an adaptor ring might have been useful to suit for common lens dia.
its great for budget consumers.
