Set Perfect White-Balance With Starbucks Coffee-Cup Lid

Set Perfect WhiteBalance With Starbucks CoffeeCup
Gear  |  Camera
How do you achieve the correct white-balance for your photos? Steve Bennett’s idea is Cool! Grab an unused lid from any coffee-shop, pop it on the front of the lens, focus to infinity and take a custom white-balance reading.
"There are many add on gadgets for getting an average white balance, from using a paper coffee filter to the very pricey Expodisc.
Here is another to add to the list, just the top from a cup of Starbucks coffee.
As I usually have a cup or two rolling around in my car, there is usually one I can use in an emergency if I'm out and about :)
I usually keep a few along with straws in the glove compartment too, never know when they will come in handy for a cup of coffee while travelling.
To use, I set the focus to infinity, place the cap over, then set the custom WB. I dont even need to hold it as it fits nicely inside my lens hood, but that is just a lucky coincidence. "
