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.

              Does exactly what it's supposed to

              Comments about Lastolite EzyBalance Gray Card:

              Custom white balance on DSLR video is one of the things that's easy to do and makes a big difference. Being used to shooting raw in the stills world - where you can adjust WB in post - I made some terrible color errors early on with the GH4 that I couldn't fix in Final Cut. Either the white or gray side works for setting custom WB, with a handy focusing target thrown in.

                EzyBalance Gray Card by Lastolite makes very easy to set you white balance in post processing. It has a great size, when collapsed it's very compact and does not take a lot of space, durable design.

                    I have been carrying around a giant white foam core as a white balance card and a reflector. I finally got tired of how cumbersome and fragile my whole cheap system was and bought this and a real reflector. I was going to go cheap again and buy a little card but I sprung for this collapsible version and am glad I did. It is easy, quick and cop act to fold and does the job. Sometimes it is nice to have the right tool and save the time and frustration.

                    This foldable grey/white balance is what I have been looking for. When doing a white balance for my video shoots it is easy to pop open to take the white balance and close up again for storage/transport. It comes with a small carrying case which easily fits into my camera case.

                      I use this to get my studio lights set to the correct stops. It's small so it's a little hard to shoot 100% gray... you have to get very close. A larger on would be more suitable, but for the price of this little gray card it is well worth it.

                                Very compact and durable. Smart investment if you don't currently own one or if you're looking to replace your cards.

                                    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!
