Product Description

Product Description

Color correction pre- and post-capture Exposure control pre- and post capture Accurate color rendition Collapsible, durable, and cleanable Double-sided grey and white Unique focusing target For use with digital or film photography

From the Manufacturer



The EzyBalance ''point and shoot'' allows you to concentrate on the important part of photography, composition and ''capturing the moment.'' This handy double sided ''pop up'' 18% grey/white card simplifies the complex technical issues surrounding exposure and color correction when working in different lighting conditions. This provides a major benefit when working under pressure at events such as weddings or fashion shows.


Key Features:
 •   Triple re-enforced stitch line - Over 30 stitches per inch ensures steel rims won't be popping out of the rim tape
 •   Collapses to a third of opened size - Close down to a convenient size for portability
 •   Pre and Post capture color correction - Can be used to white balance digital cameras or fix color on digitized images
 •   Pre and post capture exposure control - Can help determine exposure for cameras or fix exposure on digitized images
 •   Collapsible/Reversible/Cleanable - Two wipe clean surfaces in one size makes it easy to take with you
 •   Can be used with all digital and film cameras - Not limited to only high-end cameras can be used on throw away film cameras all the way up to large format cameras

White Balancing the Camera
The EzyBalance features a unique focusing target to enable the camera to focus on the card and take the necessary readings for an accurate white balance setting. Many cameras struggle to actually focus on a plain white or grey area. Have your subject hold the EzyBalance and select the Custom White Balance setting on your camera (refer to your camera manual for instructions). Zoom in so that the EzyBalance fills the entire frame of your camera and take a reading off of the card (
refer to your camera manual for instructions). Your white balance is now set so you can re-take the shot with the correct exposure and color balance.

Post Capture - Exposure and Color Balancing
The EzyBalance can also be used as an accurate reference point for post capture manipulation in Adobe Photoshop® (and other software packages). All you need to do is take the first shot with the card in the photograph each time you shoot in a different lighting situation.
Open the image in Photoshop and use the "levels" adjustment window.  Select the Grey Eye Dropper and click on the card. Poor exposure and color balance will automatically be corrected. Save these changes as a new action, and apply the action to the remainder of the images from your shoot. All images are then automatically adjusted for you.

This is a great product. Every photographer new to photography that do not understand how to set the white balance or exposure using the camera's built in light meter, should purchase this 18% gray card or this 18% gray card tool.

This tool helps take the guess work out of getting the correct white balance and exposure setting right the first time. Even though I know how to use Photoshop to correct the white balance and exposure, it's more efficient to have the correct settings from the very start, which means less time making corrections during post processing.

To determine the exposure using the card fist I set my camera's ISO speed to match the lighting conditions, such as outside ISO 100 indoors ISO 400, meter to spot and mode dial to auto. Then fill the viewfinder with the card and be sure that the focus is out of focus so that you are reading the overall card and not just a spot on the card, with the flash set to off take the picture.

Now playback the image and display the exposure setting set by the camera, such as f-stop and shutter speed. Now set the camera to manual and set the f-stop and shutter to correspond to the auto settings. Now if your camera has a manual white balance setting follow the above methods to set the white balance. My Nikno D60 has just such a function, which will allow for setting the white balance by taking a picture of a gray or white card to set the manual white balance and hold that setting in memory or use another pictured stored on the media card with correct the white balance settings.

Now your settings are correct for exposure and white balance and you can start taking pictures. Remember if your location or the lighting changes you must recalibrate the white balance and exposure.

This is a tool that will improve my workflow and my results. I've been reluctant to take a gray card with me in the past because of their size. So I'd correct color in post as best I could (shooting raw helps, of course). With this product I can now quickly do a very accurate custom WB and since it folds down easily to a very compact size it can fit easily in even my smallest camera bag.

I put the Ezbalance to a real test at a recent NBA game where I was luck enough to have courtside seats. The lighting in an arena is tough to balance. With the Ezbalance card I set the custom WB and also used it to set a manual exposure (ISO1250, f3.2, 1/500). Shot the entire game that way, with the best results of any sporting event yet - perfect color and exposure on every shot. Post-processing couldn't have been easier - crop, resize, light USM and that's pretty much it. Since there was no underexposure to speak of noise was more than acceptable.

Highly recommended from someone who's tried them all.

I have been very pleased with this grey card. Love the fact that it is collapsible down to a little 4" square. Fits right in my camera backpack so I have it whenever I may need it.

I would recommend it over regular grey cards anyday!

White balance is no longer hit-or-miss with the Lastolite EzyBalance Card and the custom WB feature of my Canon 30D. It collapses to something I can stick in my pocket for those occasions when I do not want to burdened with a camera bag.

I'm just a amateur just trying to improve my photos via post production and since I have been using Lastolite for a balance card the results have been very impressive. I like that it folds up quickly into it's own pouch and it is very lightweight.

Before getting this tool, I was never confident that I was chosing the right white balance in my post processing. In fact looking at pictures taken over the year, my color varied greatly. Now, I set my custom white balance with this and my color is always the same and always correct. It is a perfect size. Large enough to easily fill the frame, yet when folded up easily fits in my camera bag.

Not much to say other than it is much sturdier than a standard gray card made from cardboard and it fold up into a small pouch which makes it easy to carry with you, wherever you go. Great product!

One of the most important things that you can do to improve your digital photos is to make sure you use the appropriate white balance. The white balance presets are okay, but are often not quite right. This tool is perfect for setting the white balance on a DSLR. Any white or gray surface can be used to set the white balance on a DSLR, but sometimes you can't find a perfectly white or perfectly gray thing. Having one of these is like having photo insurance. It folds up so small that it will fit easily into any camera bag.

However, some people may find the small size of this particular card to be a drawback. Personally, I'd rather have something small to carry around. But if you're mostly a studio photographer, you might want one of the larger (20-inch or 30-inch) cards.
