The Lastolite LR1252 Waterproof Ezybalance 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 it's 12" opened round size making it infinitely more convenient and allowing it to fit into a small bag or pocket.

Suitable for all environments -- water resistant finish
High quality, durable wipe-clean surface material, sewn to a sprung steel rim using triple row stitch technology.

      Color balance made easy

      I use the EZ Balance with a Canon 40D for beach photography and weddings. The waterproof coating protects the surface from ocean spray and spilled drinks.

        This thing works great. I use the gray side to mMake perfect white balance on my Canon 7D video. The zipper on the case is cheapo, but that is my only complaint.

          I tested this against other white balance tools. This worked great in all situations and even outperformed my incident white balance tool in some cases. This is easy to carry, so it's usually with me when I'm out with my camera.

                Have used it a number of times from far distances (balcony to stage) and the focus mark comes in very handy.

                Very usefull. You simply should check the 18% grey area are about 0EV exposed to get a nice representation of tonal zones.

                Nice to pre-adjust the exposure environment without a subject and a fast way to perform a manual white balance

                  the screen is perfect. I tested and worked well.
                  it looks like new, but the card of instruction looks like old.
                  that's ok. I did a digital copy and put in my computer.

                    I was very pleased with how sturdy this card is! One side is the white and the other is the grey, which makes it very easy to transition between the two without too many things to fiddle with. They fold up and slip into a case for easy transport, so they're just small enough to fit in my camera bag and not cause too much of a nuisance(They're a little bulky, but as far as grey cards go, it's either one of these or one of the mini cards, which are many times harder to use). It's exactly what I needed!

                        I normally depend on manual setting of my white balance but i faced so many problem and it takes time before i can get the correct one. worry no more! It is great tool and very handy. Now i can easily set my white balance at an instant with full relaiability.

                            Great little compact, white balance tool. It's easy to collapse and fits perfectly inside my camera bag. Added bonus is the fact that it's waterproof.

                                Easy to use...the size is perfect for locations, when talent is holding or clipped to a stand, etc. It has a nice feel and finish; it's wipeable it gets a little dirty. And, I love the target, which allows easy focusing.

                                Well made.

                                  It gets the job accurately done. I wish Lastolite manufactured a 'card' that was a bit larger, maybe 15"; 12" is almost perfect. I wish Lastolite manufactured a carrying bag in black; the currently used blue bag is sort-of ugly.

                                    This scales your colour immediately and makes them look alike between cameras which easen up the colour correction in the post-production.

                                      With the line of work I do, getting a grey / white balance is very time consuming. However I've found the Lastolite grey / white card very easy to use and carry around.

                                        My main one is the 20 incher, but this one travels really well in my small bag when just toting my camera/small prime lens. Custom white balance, in many cases, has changed everything (for the better, of course).
