Did something like this 2 years ago with coffee filters: http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=83446

I think pringles caps suffer the same problem.. they will slowly turn yellow over time. :(
What I've been doing was to shoot a white surface... but dead not accurate at all... Giving the Pringle cap a try... Will do more test with it... The best thing is that it can double as a lens cap... Perfect for my 67mm diameter lens... :bsmilie: Anyway, I think plastic wouldn't turn yellow as easily compared to the coffee filter material...

heh no worries lor.. just buy anohter tube of pringles... ;p
Haha... Then can eat and shoot at the same time... :bsmilie: Then can buy anywhere you need it also wor... Cold Storage, NTUC, provision shops, 7 eleven... ;P

Pringles cap dun have 77mm size.

.
Can try those plastic caps from Tong Garden or Camel brand nuts. Definitely wider diameter than Pringles. Disclaimer: I am not responsible if you get fat trying out all the different brands...

wow. interesting.
It really makes me wonder why people are so obsessed with white balance if they are ok with using off-neutral objects to perform white balance. In that case, I still think Cloudy would have given a more accurate rendition and depict the actual mood and colour of the lighting more accurately.

I also wonder what white balance is used when shooting sunrise/sunset.. :think: :dunno:
