Key Features

Back to top
  • The Target you Need — three targets for everything you need: white balance, for ensuring your files are captured with the correct white point; creative enhancement, for evaluating and optimizing shadow details, color spectrum, color adjustment of hue, saturation, lightness and more; and classic, for use as a visual reference to help with color correction
  • The Right White — starting with an accurate white balance ensures the colors captured are accurate and provides a point of reference for post-shoot editing. The ColorChecker white balance target provides a neutral reference point across the different lighting conditions encountered during a photo shoot
  • Industry Standard — the ColorChecker classic target attains consistent, predictable color at capture and provides a visual point of color reference. When combined with the included camera calibration software, DNG profiles can be created, to get consistent, predictable and repeatable results from image to image and camera to camera
  • Creative Enhancement — provides a higher level of color creativity and control by including four rows of color patches designed for image editing with just the click of an eyedropper. Creatively refine the color of an image by adding warmth to skin tones or boost the deep greens or blues in a landscape. Simply click through the patches to view the adjustment, and select the one that provides the desired look
  • Calibrated Raw Workflow — makes the camera calibration experience fast and easy by starting with a consistent foundation. And, the Raw processing software can automatically be applied to profiles to edit a batch of images
  • Improved Process — eliminate color casts, improve the color preview on the camera's display so histograms are more reliable, and make post production color editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralize each image individually
  • Camera Calibration Software — easily build DNG profiles for Adobe® Imaging solutions including Lightroom®, Photoshop®, Photoshop® Elements, Camera Raw (ACR) and Adobe® Bridge. Color differences can be minimized between cameras and lenses, mixed lighting adapted, and color balance matched across different scenes. Plus, dual-Illuminant profiles can be created, allowing freedom to move between the represented lighting conditions without switching profiles
  • Portable convenience — the travel-sized case is made of a rugged material and protects the three ColorChecker targets from frequent use. The case adjusts to multiple positions to self-stand, allowing the flexibility to place the targets exactly where needed. Plus, the included lanyard makes the Passport easy to transport and keeps it within quick reach for every photo shoot.
