With the rising popularity of digital photography a growing number of photographers are using grey cards to ensure their photographs are properly exposed and color corrected.

Lastolite has taken the grey card to another level with the development of the innovative Ezybalance "Point and Shoot". The unique gun sight on the collapsible card allows the photographer to achieve perfect focus every shot, and because the Ezybalance is an 18% grey, the shot will also be perfectly exposed. All this is achieved by simply placing the Ezybalance near the subject and half depressing the shutter on any digital camera, then removing the card and fully depressing the shutter for the perfect shot.

The Ezybalance "Point and Shoot" also comes with a white surface on the back to accurately white balance the camera as you go.

    This is an item I have held off buying for quite a while, but once I started using it I wondered why I waited so long. As a pro photographer, I certainly understand the value of performing custom white balance checks prior to a shoot. Up till now, I had been using an old 8x10 grey card, the kind that our friends in Rochester make. It did the job but sometimes it was too small to get an accurate reading off of. After a while, the cardboard would get dirty, bent or both and would have to be replaced. The Lastolite EZYBalance Card solves all these problems. First of all, I don't know why they call it a card because it isn't. A collapsible grey disk would be more accurate. At 20" in diameter, it is the perfect size to me, although I believe they do have a bigger one if you need it. This one collapses into a mere 9" disk which is ideal for transporting or fitting into a camera bag. The grey side is a perfect 18% grey and it includes crosshairs for easier focusing. The reverse side is white if you prefer to color correct using white, and would even make an excellent small light reflector if none other were available. It is well made and should stand up to years of heavy use. The disk comes in a nice canvas case. I love it!

    I really do like this, but it is a lot more bulky than I had imagined. A lot of that bulk has to do with the heavy duty carrying case. Mine measures at 1.5 inches by 9 inches when put away. This may seem a bit of a trifle, but those thicknesses add up in my backpack - add a reflector and/or diffuser and you may well have something about 6 inches thick. I would honestly recommend a flat A4 sized plastic (not paper) grey card which would take next to no room at all. Add the cost of this item and I do not find it to be as desirable as I had thought.

        I'm glad to have something that folds out to 20." I'm not sure how necessary it is but I feel better using it than a small card. Now, you may be saying, "Hey, that's way to big to cary around." Well, you'd be wrong. When your done it folds into an 8" square and it slips into the included zippered pocket. This fits into my production backpack and off I go. It's new so I don't know about durability, but so far seems great.

          I use this for video white balancing. It's big and supposedly the surface color/material renders a more accurate WB reading than e.g., a sheet of white paper.

              The 20-inch size is much better than the 12-inch size for getting that test shot to set white balance and exposure settings. Don't have to get in the client's face to get that shot. Highly recommend this product.

                          This makes setting up a custom white balance very quick and easy. It's just the right size to hold at arm's length, have the subject hold it, or put in a scene and back up to shoot it.

                          I wanted it big enough so that I could get back a bit thus not reflect light from my clothing or skin onto the surface. It's easy to contaminate the light if you are too close and are wearing a color. I have used 8.5x11 grey cards for years, but the EZBalance is larger and folds down smaller. Also, a card gets beaten up and discolored.

                          Typical of Lastolite, it is made well and is easy to use. It folds down in an instant, and is easy to include with your gear.

                          Doing a custom white balance is usually plenty accurate, but if I want to be sure it's dead on (e.g., with a strawberry blond, redhead, unusual skin tones, need for very precise product color)I will also shoot an XRite Color Checker for reference in case I need it. That is the ultimate in accurate color.

                                I use this product for setting the white balance on my camera.

                                It's a really good size, but folds up very compact.

                                However, on mine, there are some cracks in the gray surface. They're invisible through the view finder at a distance, but this points to an imperfect production process. And these foldable items often become misshapen over time and repeated foldings, so I don't ever fold them.

                                  This was so easy to use you just take it out of the package it flips out and is ready to use. My camera reads it correctly every time in any light source. I usually only use a gray card when my classes tell me to but this is so quick and easy I use it to set a custom white balance for many of my projects now and it's extremely accurate. It's small size is very convenient for carrying around in my camera bag with all my other gear. EZYBalance is also made out of durable material so I don't have to worry about it falling apart anytime soon.

                                        The Ezybalance does as intended. Helps set custom white balance on the spot that way you spend less time in post production. It's durable strong and well built. Someone complained about the rim but I have no problems with it being thick. Easier to hold in the hand. The picture I added would usually come out yellowish with correct white balance the desk chair is black as it should be.
