Lens cap has a translucent dome. Take a picture with the cap on to create correct color profile. That's the theory anyway..

Web site here.

Anyone try one of these? Does it actually work? Even if it does, it seems like it can get pretty expensive with multiple lenses.

I'm not sure that that white styrofoam cup will work (doesn't look like it will let enough light through), but a white coffee filter works just fine. I keep two or three in each of my camera bags.

Or you could go the expensive route and buy one 77mm Expo Disc.

I got the ExpoDisc. It works, but the times I used it, the WB seemed about the same using Nikon's Pre WB
