The best wireless keyboard for the Mac?

The Vello Universal White Balance Handheld Disc is a very simple product consisting of a handle for gripping, and a translucent disc for acquiring white balance.

Why it’s a best seller: Unlike gray cards, which can be difficult to fit properly in frame, or can be influenced by ambient light and reflections, the Vello Disc is designed to fit right over your camera’s lens. Because it’s translucent, enough light is allowed in to be able to acquire custom white balance, even when the lens is covered. And because the lens is covered, you know you’re getting the correct custom white balance each time.
