The Lastolite EzyBalance Gray Card is a revolutionary tool ideal for adjusting color balance and exposure settings in both digital and film format cameras, as well as DV cams. The EzyBalance gives accurate color rendition to cameras by providing a pure white surface upon which the camera can perform a white balance.

The reverse side of the EzyBalance provides an 18% gray card surface suitable for adjusting the camera to get the most accurate exposure setting. Conventional methods of exposure control consist of using large gray cumbersome cardboard that is easily stained and over time becomes dog-eared, posing the risk of taking incorrect exposure readings. By design, the EzyBalance folds to just a third of its 12" opened round size making it infinitely more convenient and allowing it to fit into a small bag or pocket.

Suitable for all environments.
High quality, durable wipe-clean surface material, sewn to a sprung steel rim using triple row stitch technology.
Size 12" (30 cm)

      Excellent low-cost white balance system

      I purchased the Lastolite 12" EZ Balance after looking at virtually every white balance system I could find. For some years now I have been using the small QPCard for white balance. While I am happy with the results from the QPCard, the small size has made it difficult to use in some situations. The 12" EZ Balance is an ideal compromise between size and usability. It is large enough for studio use, yet portable enough for location use. It collapses down to 5-inches and stores in its heavy-duty 6-inch zippered case. That it is among the lowest cost solutions of this size is a bonus.

      Some experimentation shows that the EZ Balance white side matches the QP Card white patch precisely in color. A custom white balance from one will exactly match the other. I was surprised at just how close these two are, but take that as a good sign.

      The construction seems good. The wire folding ring is strong and about 10mm wide. The material has a rubbery feel, is thick, and very opaque. The stitching looks to me like typical surged double stitch, not perfect, but not inordinately sloppy either. It appears strong enough that I would bet on the material wearing out before any stitching gives way. The case is a very heavy nylon with an appropriately gauged, smooth zipper.

      I cannot comment on the longevity of the colorant used for this material, but would guess that with proper care and storage, it will last for some years.

      Very helpful

      I never thought it existed until I found it on B&H. I new only of cardboard sheets which easily got stained or scratched. Very good idea and pliable.

                Great for close-up work and it is a lot easier to fill the view finder when taking a reading due to its size. I am using it to create camera ready color balance presets.

                  Until working in hospitals I never custom white balanced - after using this - I will never not have it in my bag- I use this in hospitals for newborn shoots- it helps retain the perfect white balance-especially in a white room, with white blankets

                  Also great with wedding details- getting the spot on color of the bridal gown.

                  Easy to carry light weight , yet slim to slip into your camera bag- the size is perfect!

                                  I usually use this product to balancing white balance of a photo. It's easy to apply all photos taken with the same light conditions.

                                            I previously bought & attempted to use credit card size cray card which was a joke. I got tired of it & bought this as a replacement. I have used several times and it is wonderful. I love the gunsight that allows me to lock focus so I don't have to turn auto focus on my lens off every time I need to use it. The size makes it easier to fill the frame w/when setting my custom WB in camera yet it collapses so it fits in my camera bag. So glad I made this purchase!!!!
