ColorChecker Passport offers you an unparalleled tool to attain full colour control and customised creative enhancement from image capture to post-processing.
The ColorChecker Passport is an essential component to attaining a 100% colour-managed workflow. Plus, the included Enhancement target helps you take your vision one step further by providing the creativity to quickly and easily edit and express your colours just as you’ve always imagined.
A calibrated Raw workflow minimises colour differences between cameras and lenses, adapts for mixed lighting, and makes it possible to colour match across different scenes. ColorChecker Passport makes the camera calibration experience fast and easy. You’ll have greater capability to edit colour because you’re starting with a consistent foundation. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of your Raw processing software to automatically apply your profiles to a large number of images.
WHITE BALANCE TARGET
The ColorChecker White Balance target is an all-new spectrally flat target that provides a neutral reference point across different lighting conditions that you encounter during a photo shoot. Since the target reflects light equally across the visible spectrum, creating an in-camera custom white balance can properly compensate for varying lighting.
You'll be able to:
• Eliminate colour casts
• Improve the colour preview on your camera’s display so your histogrammes are more reliable
• Make post production colour editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralise each image individually Setting a custom white balance for each lighting situation will make the previews on your camera’s built in display more colour correct, make your histogrammes more reliable, and speed up post production colour editing.
CREATIVE ENHANCEMENT TARGET
The all-new Enhancement Target provides a higher level of colour creativity and control to your workflow. The Enhancement target includes four rows of colour patches designed for image editing with just the click of an eyedropper. Two rows of warming and cooling patches in the middle guide you to create pleasing and repeatable edits. Creatively refine the colour of your image by adding warmth to skin tones or boost the deep greens or blues in a landscape. When it comes to clipping, the Enhancement target highlights the power of working in Raw. A row of clipping patches across the bottom serve as a visual reference for judging, controlling and editing images for shadow details or highlight clipping. Across the top of the Enhancement target, the top HSL (hue, saturation, lightness) row includes 8 spectrum patches to ensure colour fidelity across all hues so you can evaluate and edit for any colour shifts.
The ColorChecker Passport includes a travel-sized version of the Classic 24 patch target. When combined with camera calibration software you can produce DNG profiles of your camera’s response to scene lighting to get consistent, predictable and repeatable results from image to image and camera to camera.
The Classic target also provides a visual point of colour reference. Photograph it in the same lighting as your images; then open it in your photo processing software as a reference to help with colour correction. Each square is individually coloured using a solid tone to produce pure, flat, rich colour without dots or mixed tints.
CAMERA CALIBRATION SOFTWARE
Build custom DNG profiles with the ColorChecker Classic Target, the industry standard 24-patch ColorChecker. With the included ColorChecker Passport Camera Calibration Application and Lightroom Plug-In, you can quickly and easily build DNG profiles for Adobe Imaging solutions including Lightroom, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Camera Raw (ACR) and Adobe Bridge. This new advanced profiling technology provides excellent results with just the small 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target, producing DNG profiles that work exceptionally well, even in unusual artificial light sources. Plus, software auto-detection will locate the target automatically.
• Camera calibration for Raw shooters enables greater capability to calibrate and correct colour
• Accurate colour gives a consistent foundation for creative interpretation
• Minimise colour differences between cameras and lenses
• Adapt for mixed lighting
• Make colour balance match across different scenes
A very powerful feature of the software is the ability to create dual-illuminant DNG profiles taking into account two different light sources to create a single profile. Dual-illuminant profiles allow you the freedom to move between the represented lighting conditions without switching profiles.
The ColorChecker Passport’s travel-sized case provides the ultimate in convenience. Made of a rugged material, it houses and protects the three ColorChecker targets from the elements and daily use to extend their lifespan.

Great, but pricey for what you get. You do get an "Is that it?" feeling when you open the box. This can easily be reduced by at least £20. Good gear though.Published 1 month ago by John T.
