The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Gray Balance Card from Sekonic provides you with a pocket-sized solution for getting accurate color both in camera and with post processing. It includes a variety of different targets like the creative enhancement, classic, and white balance target as well as a 20% gray balance card. Also, it works with camera calibration software and DNG profiling software for improving the color of your images.

The classic target features 24 color patches that can be used for profiling your camera. The white balance target allows you set a consistent white point for your images. And, the creative enhancement target allows you to easily warm up or cool down your images as well as evaluate shadow details. All of these can easily fit into an included protective case that can be set up easily during shooting. Additionally, the 20% gray balance area is useful use with spot meters like the L-478 with a 5° attachment and working with the Sekonic software.

Sekonic's camera calibration and profiling software (available for download from Sekonic) is compatible with these cards and allows you to quickly and easily create calibrations for your camera and DNG profiles. This allows you to easily and quickly correct your color with software and save and manage different profiles easily and effectively. Also, select Sekonic light meters can have this calibration data transferred to them in order to provide more accurate readings for your camera.

        Comments about Sekonic X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Gray Balance Card:

        I love my Sekonic meter = but when I came across this ColorChecker Passport, I jumped at it. Great tool with easy to use software from Sekonic to calibrate your light meter. If you're gonna take the $$ plunge for a good meter like this, spend a few $$ more and get the calibration equipment and color balance cards. Highly recommended.

        Comments about Sekonic X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Gray Balance Card:

        This ColorChecker is compact and accurate! Plus you can calibrate your Sekonic meter to operate from your camera's dynamic range for more accuracy. I've got my L478DR meter calibrated and a custom white balance loaded into the camera for a strobe setup that delivers correct color every time. No guess work! It seems expensive but should be included in your system of shooting to post-processing.

              I was already fan of the standard colorchecker passport, but the sekonic one makes it easier to calibrate your sekonic light meters

                Comments about Sekonic X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Gray Balance Card:

                I have been using it especially in mixed light and so far I'm liking the color balance and the extra accuracy and boost I'm seeing in colors after adding the camera profiles. Only four stars with what I just said. Balance isn't perfect and if it was it would by the holy grail of color balance.

                Comments about Sekonic X-Rite ColorChecker Passport with Gray Balance Card:

                I was hoping to use this product as it is intended, but the software which is a download, will not open on my windows7 64 bit system. I do however; use the color checker passport for white balance in both Camera raw and Lightroom. Using it that way still gives me correct white balance but I could have saved some money an just used a gray card.

                    Used this card to match the profile in my Sekonic I-478DR light meter to my camera sensor characteristics for studio strobe use. This resulted in about a 1.3 stop correction. Suddenly, the meter readings became much more useful.

                      small and compact and it lets you set the white balance on camera for accurate colors. theres also different grays on the other side you can use in post production for white balance.
