X-Rite Original ColorChecker Card

The Original ColorChecker Card from Xrite 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. These squares are not only the same color as their counterparts, but also reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum. Because of this unique feature, the squares will match the colors of natural objects under any illumination and with any color reproduction process.

The ColorChecker provides a totally non-subjective standard of comparison to help determine the true color balance of any color rendition system, and it provides the needed standard for comparing, measuring and analyzing differences in color reproduction in various processes, thereby avoiding costly mistakes.

Achieve true-to-life color reproduction.
Minimize tedious trial and error color adjustments
Simplify camera and studio lighting balance
Large Size: 8.5 x 11" (21.6 x 27.9 cm)

The chart is made of durable plastic. The colors are durable and are matt finished so that they do not easily flare or glare when you you are shooting a test picture.
Put the color checker in the picture you are shooting for a test shot and you have a perfect raw or jpeg, color and B+W reference. The #2 grey step is perfect for white balancing your pictures in photoshop raw.
18 color steps and 6 B+W density steps. Worth every penny.

I have an Apple Cinema Display that I calibrate every few weeks with X-Rite EyeOne Display 2. With that and the ColorChecker, white balancing comes out a little cool. Don't know where in the system the breakdown could be, it's all X-Rite. Still, useful to have I guess.

      Comments about X-Rite Original ColorChecker Card:

      I've used the Color Checker Card by X-Rite mainly to color check video content and for final grading while editing. While it is a low tech tool,it really does the job. I recommend it for anyone on a limited budget that needs a good color reference for either photography or video.

      Bargain

      By Sandman

      from New York, NY

      Comments about X-Rite Original ColorChecker Card:

      Much less expensive than other color reference charts. Colors are very vivid and print is nice and matte. Not extremely durable, but it comes in a protective sleeve for transport. Standard chart can be used with Dvinci Resolve to automatically correct and match clips.

          The card is a nice size and provides good colour, but Resolves auto-match only gives decent results and it does not work with Aperture in any automated way. Still useful though.

                This has brought our photography to the next level! Now we have a consistent white point and black point to pick from when doing color work. Works great in different lighting conditions and small. I wish I had this early!

                  I use it like a clapboard at the start of shots for use in preprocessing color using Davinci Resolve 11. It works as well as more expensive cards programmed into resolve 11. -asked Black Magic person at new york Black Magic event on Aug 13.

                                I have both the Original and the Passport Color Checker models and love them both. I prefer the Original for the ease of filling the frame with the grid, and the Passport for its portability.

                                                I need to get the closest possible color match between a Panasonic HVX200, and a number of assorted DSLRs.The chart isn't fancy, but it does everything you'd expect it to do for [$]. Obviously I'd prefer to own a Chroma Du Monde chart, but my budget won't allow it.I am going to tear it at some point, the cardboard is flimsier than I'd like. But they say you're meant to replace your ColorChecker Card every 2 years-ish. That is probably the length of time it'll take me to destroy mine, so it works out OK.

                                                          Looks good , only used it once since I got it.
                                                          Should be a big help in getting the colors right.

                                                          Only thing is a little expensive of a product to come with SO many warnings about touching the actual squares or exposing to sunlight for too long etc. ... their list goes on ...

                                                                This is perhaps the simplest and best way to ensure that your colors are correct and that they print at they should.
                                                                Just include the the card in one shot in a series and it becomes the color standard for them all.
                                                                Once in Photoshop or some other Post Processing software, click on a color square and all of your colors are suddenly corrected. This process is simplified, but essentially correct.

                                                                Very useful for both indoor and outdoor shooting as well as for creating camera profiles and much more, but be careful to keep it safe from rain and do not get oils from fingers on it or the colors will change and quality will be reduced.

                                                                I highly reccomend it.
