    72mm White Balance Lens Cap is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cap results too cool The cap is a good quality for low-cost, however after much testing, the results are much cooler than with an 18% gray card. I was forced to use auto WB on the job when I had it with me because of the unfavorable results I received. You could however use it for a good reference and shift all photos the same interval warmer post-production.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not do the job Other reviewers seem to find these inexpensive caps to be an acceptable alternative to the expodisc. I do not own the expodisc but I can tell you that these do not give a proper result for incandescant lighting when I compare to using an 18% grey card or even a white card. For me these consistently gave results that were too cool (whites were too blue) in color temperature. Dont waste your time with these. I have a grey / white / black card set that are small in size, on a lanyard, to put around my neck. You hold those up to the lens and do the white balance reference shot. The small size of those works perfect when held close to the lens in the lighting by your subject. Just about as convenient as a white balance cap would be IMHO. Fortunately B&H stood behind them 100%. If all products were as good as B&H one would never have a problem with anything.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy to use Product. This white balance lens cap is much easier to use than an 18% gray card.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does not fit inside lens hood Works fine for white balancing, but does not fit over lens filter with the lens hood attached.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vaue. I have been using DotLine white balance lens caps for 5 years. They come supplied with an adapter ring which accepts filters and provides a tight fit for the cap. I use these caps to set a custom white balance before I start taking images. For their price they provide a white balance setting which is as accurate as other caps which cost a lot more. These are a great value and I recommend them to anyone who routinely set a custom WB.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!! You don't have to worry about crazy temperatures anymore!! Use this to set your custom white balance in ANY lighting, and always have the correct temperature colors in your images BEFORE editing them in Photoshop! Absolutely amazing! I cannot believe I've gone so long without it! It's easy to use and easy to store!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 72mm White Balance lens cap 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.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tragically bad Plastic threads stripped out the first time I tried to mount this cap. Protruding plastic *means you can't use this cap inside a rubber lens hood. More or less useless. Spend more, buy the other one.
