BRNO baLens Snap-On Lens Cap with White Balance 52 mm
Innovative lens cap for perfect white balance
The baLens is a lens cap with locking mechanism, and an integrated, transparent dome, which is the simplest way to allow a consistent white balance regardless of the light source. Despite the auto white balance (AWB) cameras still have trouble with certain lighting situations, especially mixed lighting conditions. The baLens is the simple, well-designed and functional solution for amateurs and professionals.
Perfect white balance in the simplest way
Achieve a custom white balance in seconds, without removing your hands from the camera. Just attach the baLens lens cap, set the lens to manual focus (MF) and the camera on a program with automatic exposure. Take a photo and assign it in your camera menu as reference for white balance - Done. The white balance can even be made with mounted lens hood. For the most accurate results, the camera should point in the direction of the main light source. For mixed lighting conditions, the camera should be aligned so that an average value can be determined. When you change the lighting must be the white balance again.
Perfect white balance also with flash lighting
The baLens can also be used together with flash lighting. With off-camera flash the flash should be directed to the white balance lens cap on the camera. With hot shoe flash or internal camera flash, the flash should point against a white ceiling, so that the white balance will be done on the reflected light.
The dome for the white balance can be replaced. It comes with a second dome, which is tuned to a slightly warmer color temperature is (equivalent to 81A warming filter). By this, photos with warmer shades can be achieved. In particular this dome is used in portrait photography for warmer skin tones.
Highest quality for best results
The baLens is subject to very strict quality controls. Before and during the production domes are regularly checked by spectrophotometer and densitometer against a reference dome. In this way, the best accuracy for a perfect white balance is always guaranteed.
Lens cap for protection against dust, water and shock
As a lens cap the baLens protects the lens or expensive filters anywhere and anytime from dirt, splash and shock. Through the locking mechanism of the lens cap it can be clamped securely in the front thread of lenses and filters, so that it can not fall off accidentally.
The baLens is usable with all cameras that allow manual white balance.
At wide-angle lenses with very bulging front lenses, it can happen that the lens cap collides with the lens. Make sure that between the front lens and the top of the lens mount at least about 2 mm clearance are given.
