Product Description

The baLens is a snap-on lens cap with a removable translucent dome in the center. By simply placing the cap on your lens, pointing the camera at the light source and doing a manual white balance, superior color correction is easily achieved under any lighting conditions. Simple. Smart. Functional. Change the way your camera sees color. Go from orange, blue and green-tinted photos to beautifully captured color by setting a custom white balance with the baLens Cap. The patent-pending baLens White Balance Lens Cap system comes with interchangeable neutral and warm filters. So no matter how challenging the lighting, with a baLens Cap you can get better colors right out of the bag. Save time, energy and money by eliminating the need to adjust an image's color balance in your photo editing software. baLens allows you to concentrate on the creative aspects of your photography. The baLens is simple to use: mount the baLens Lens Cap on the lens, take a reference exposure of the light falling on your intended subject with the camera set in manual focus/auto exposure mode. The baLens Lens Cap will allow the setting of a custom white balance based on the actual color temperature of the light source. The dome-shaped filter allows for very accurate measurement of color temperature under mixed light source conditions. Using the camera’s menu functions, locate the custom white balance setting and apply the reading. A warm dome is included for when you wish to achieve natural skin tones in portraits or an overall warmer effect in your photos. BRNO implements very strict quality controls. For example, once the formula for the center filter pieces are mixed, a pre-production sample is taken and measured against a control sample on a photo spectrometer and densitometer. Once this is approved, then samples are taken from production pieces during various times during output and retested, providing you a product that meets the highest of standards.

This white balance lens cap is great! It works very well even in low light, and I was amazed at the difference between pictures that I balanced with the lens cap and pictures that I took using the auto white balance setting on my camera (a Canon Rebel XT). In addition, the lens cap is sturdy and high-quality. I'm very pleased with this purchase, and I would recommend it.

My husband bought me this for my birthday and all I can say is wow! I've never been able to take pictures in my kitchen and dining room because color casts in there are terrible (probably because of my paint choice sherwin williams wheatgrass). This lens cap solved that problem in less than 60 seconds! You just take a photo through the lens cap (I had to use manual focus for this step) and go through your cameras settings to set custom WB and choose the photo you took through the lens cap. Take the lens cap off and start shooting! It was that easy. Fits perfectly on my Canon 50mm 1.4 lens.

I purchased this cap for my 67mm Canon T4i and a 58mm cap for my new Vixia HF G30 camcorder.
The cap makes setting the white balance very easy. I test compared the auto white balance with the cap white balance and saw some minor difference. However, in difficult mixed lighting sources, the cap should be most helpful. It sure beats trying to use a white card when in a hurry.
The cap is recommended in the book: Canon G10 and XA10 by Warren Bass (also purchased through Amazon).

Although this is not a high priced white balance lens cap, it produces noticeably better photos on my Canon T3i. It is easy to use with the custom white balance setting on the camera. Comparison photos shot with auto-white balance vs custom white balance using this cap have convinced me that the custom approach is the way to go. I highly recommend this product for it's economy and results.

This product will not work well in dim lighting, due to a small amount of light making it through the white hemisphere. But in moderate light this product works surprisingly well, and the construction is very good (not a cheap lens cap). Overall this will add about 3/4 of an inch to the end of your lens, so if your tight on space it may not be a good choice.

Fits right on the UV filter and is ready to give you a white balance in any condition. It's saved me some time in post, although I shoot everything raw and post white balance is not a big deal. Definitely worth the $$

I use this thing constantly. Every time I go to shoot I use it to check white balance on my camera (Canon GF10) and when I'm finished shooting I just put it back on as a lens cover. Efficient, small and effective.
