BRNO BaLens – Perfect White Balance

May 29, 2009

BRNO_baLensHow many times have you looked at your shots and thought, “Hmm, that colour doesn’t quite look right…” I think we all have at some point or another. If you want to make your images better, you’re going to need to understand white balance. Simply put, white balance is a camera’s way of balancing the colour of light such that all light sources such as the sun, light bulbs etc … are recorded without a yellow, blue, green or magenta colour cast. Our eyes & brain do this for us naturally but our camera needs a bit of help.

The BRNO BaLens has a translucent diffuser dome on the front of the cap that allows you to shoot a reference picture for custom white balance with the cap on. Once you have your reference shot, you tell the camera to use that shot to set a custom white balance profile that you can use to get truly neutral white light.

The BRNO BaLens has a few advantages over other white balance tools. First, it is a lens cap so get a BaLens that matches your most common lens diameter and you’ll be sure to have it with you at all times.
