The Dot-Line Corp. White Balance Lens Cap is great for use with digital cameras. Just place the White Balance Lens Cap, point your camera at a subject area, and the incoming light is diffused to create an average white balance for a particular scene. (Check camera manufacturer's manual for setting white balance.). The White Balance Lens Cap easily slips on to the front of any appropriately sized lens, or a lens with a protective filter. Even if your lens has a bayonet mount on the outside, simply use the adapter provided. The lens cap comes with a handy loop to connect it to a camera strap or strap lug so you don't lose the cap.

    I recently bought a Dot Line 77mm white balance cap. It really works. Just set your exposure, pop on the cap, take a picture and import it into your custom white balance program on your camera. If your using flash just make sure you pop the flash when you have the cap on. The only problem is that the screw on ring that the cap is supposed to fit on has poor threads and it can get stuck on your filter. Just throw it away. The white balance cap fits snugly enough on the lens anyway. Sure beats 80 bucks for an Expodisc.

    I bought this for upcoming weddings and events to help with white balance when the lighting is subject to change in different areas. I wish it were easier to put against the lens with a lens hood on. It's a little akward to hold against my lens, switch to manual focus, and then hit the shutter button. The white balance settings were not as accurate as I thought, but close enough to get me in range. But for the price I paid I guess that's worth it. I only plan on using this for weddings/events - for studio portraits, I'll stick to my trusty white balance reflector.

    Also wish DOT would include more detailed instructions (that's the case with all their products - okay products, but sometimes you have to do more research on how to use them).

    Very Unusable

    By Tricia

    Pros

    • Durable

    Cons

    • Screw On Loop Too Short
    • Tough To Attach

    Best Uses

      Comments about Dot Line 77mm White Balance Lens Cap:

      I ordered this mostly to be used as a lens cap. The loop is designed to be connected to the camera strap holder but it is way too short to reach so I tried to just loop it around the lens but it is too short for that as well. It is threaded so that it can be attached to the lens but it is very difficult to screw on and the fact that the loop is so short it makes it impossible to use the loop. The white balance works just fine though.

        Comments about Dot Line 77mm White Balance Lens Cap:

        Place the cap over your lens, point it in the direction of your subject, snap a picture and set your camera to custom white balance. The white balance is set for the shoot. Pictures look great. I wish it would attach to the lens in a different way. This design screws on to the lens, I think it should clip on like a lens cap. This would make it a little easier.

            Comments about Dot Line 77mm White Balance Lens Cap:

            Its ok. Cheap plastic as expected, and doesnt stay attatched lens. Much cheaper than the [$]counterpart. In a controlled environment it may work well. I found it to be too "blue".I think my 60D does a better job at determining white balance than this, but it is subjective. I do not carry this in my camera bag.

              I really like the design of this lens cap--when you attach the ring the cap is snap-on-snap-off for quick photo taking (and also beneficial when your lens has a large hood on it, which I usually have on mine.

                Just place the white balance cap in front of the lense, aime, shot, and use the file to balance your other images. I used it for still photography, I wouldn't recommend it for photojournalism or quick shots...you need to have some time to use the cap, set the camera, and do the final shots, but it is really good and useful if you have time for set up; maybe product photography or still portraits.

                    A great buy for the money. Works well if you make certain there's enough light for your camera to find the white balance. The white "cap" and the filter screw threads are two separate (cheap plastic) pieces, which isn't a stellar design, but again-- for the money-- a good deal. Does what it's supposed to.

                        I use this cap for setting my custom white balance in the field when I don't want to subject my x-rite color checker to harsh conditions. this cap works fine on all of my lenses up to 77 mm. I simply hold it over the lens, aim it towards the light source and take my shot, then it is an easy step to set the in camera custom white balance. the results check fine against my color checker during the calibrations that I have preformed with both products, and for the price I trust the results for most of my field photography needs.

                                        Comments about Dot Line 77mm White Balance Lens Cap:

                                        So far I've had fairly good success with this white balance cap. It fits perfectly, nice and snug on my 70mm lens and I have seen a marked improvement in my color output after using the cap to set custom white balance. I am very pleased with the performance and the best part it was very reasonably priced. The cord keeps it on my camera for quick use, which I also find very convenient.

                                          It is very simple and easy to use, just pop it on your lens snap a picture and ta-da custom white balance. It's cheap, light weight, easy to store. Only downfall doesn't come with a little pouch to store it in.
