The ColorChecker Chart from X-Rite is a checkerboard array of 24 scientifically prepared colored squares in a wide range of colors. Many of these squares represent natural objects of special interest, such as human skin, foliage and blue sky; all reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum - a unique feature that ensures color matching of natural objects under any illumination and with any color reproduction process. With the X-Rite ColorChecker, photographers can check films, lights, filters and paper with ease. To learn more visit: http://tinyurl.com/2vtegl.
In addition to the standard ColorChecker, X-Rite offers variations that meet virtually any needed standard of comparing, measuring and analyzing differences in color reproduction in various processes to streamline processes and avoid costly mistakes. Show visitors can learn how an X-Rite Digital ColorChecker (SG) provides checks and comparisons of the digital reproduction of a real scene or a test pattern; makes a white balance with a digital camera; and allows photographers to use the chart with camera profiling software to create an ICC camera-ready profile. Comes included with the X-Rite i1Photo SG and other PRO bundles as well as a stand-alone product.
To ensure that the camera's raw image is as close to real life as possible, X-Rite offers photographers a choice among several reference devices that are scientifically engineered to provide precise uniform surfaces that are spectrally neutral (i.e., reflect equal amounts of red, blue and green) under all types of light conditions - natural, fluorescent or studio.
