        Comments about DSC Labs FrontBox 12+4 Test Chart:

        These things are expensive for what they are... But they are color accurate, and have a sturdy construction. Right out of the box I tested one of my cameras and found that it needed some slight adjustments. When shooting with any compressed format it is important to limit how much color correction you need in post.

          Comments about DSC Labs FrontBox 12+4 Test Chart:

          This chart is for precise color alignment of HD cameras. It has been calibrated to fit the vector targets at 2x scale - so it takes the guesswork out of color tweaking your HD cameras to match a Rec 709 color space.

            Comments about DSC Labs FrontBox 12+4 Test Chart:

            By utilising the FrontBox 12+4 DSC Labs test chart, I was able to adjust the gamma, chroma phase and chroma saturation, each by just a little in the right directions to obtain even better performance from my Sony EX3 camcorder. A very well produced test chart. Highly recommended.
