Datacolor's SpyderCHECKR Pro/Cube Bundle is a valuable bundle containing a SpyderCHECKR and SpyderCUBE. The SpyderCHECKR allows photographers to color calibrate a camera, perform precision in-camera white balance and record known-color samples. The sturdy, eco-friendly design has 48 spectrally engineered color patches and calibration software that's easy to use.

SpyderCUBE is a RAW calibration tool that easily fits into a pocket, and outperforms white balance and gray card solutions. The 3D cube is an ideal way to capture color temperature and light source data on-site for accurate RAW adjustments and more consistent color.

Used together, these two tools let you achieve consistent color from day to day and camera to camera and apply these results in your RAW workflow. This in turn can streamline post-production by affording predictable color in the beginning of the capturing process.

Consistent color control for your RAW workflow made easy and fast with SpyderCHECKR and its powerful software, giving you a color standard for any camera and decreasing your post-production time
Neutral gray target and gray ramp for in-camera white balance and visual neutrality analysis
Extensive skintone samples for portrait and fashion photography
Durable, eco-friendly self casing construction for easy transport and field use, with replaceable targets, fade strip indicator, tripod and SpyderCUBE mount
Spectrally neutral SpyderCUBE responds consistently to all lighting conditions in the field or in studio for easy white balancing and exposure corrections
Instantly correct image neutrality by setting color temperature and tint
Includes black trap and chrome ball for shadow detail highlight control in any shooting situation
SpyderCHECKR software interacts with Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, Elements, and Camera Raw to produce calibration presets, which fit directly into your digital workflow; no DNG processing required, multiple lightsource calibration option included

            I've had the SpyderPro for a couple of years to help calibrate my monitor. Now with the SpyderCheckr Pro and Cube I can take my color management to the next level.

              Comments about Datacolor SpyderCHECKR PRO/CUBE Bundle:

              I shoot college classes & print composite's with as many as 175 students on one composite. I always seem to have a few student's (mostly with blond hair) that I struggle to get the color dead on. I mostly use medium gray backdrop cloths & will have a very small precent with a slight color shift in batch processing. Purchased the SpyderCheckr/Cube for better consistency. Just finished my 1st shoot with it & I am very happy that I made the purchase. The color profile with SpyderCheckr is subtle & accurate. It has really helped to tighten up my work flow & made life much easier printing blond hair accurately. I used the cube for the 1st time on this shoot & my gray backgrounds were all consistent. I am very happy with the product.

                I use this checker along with the Spyder4 calibration system to keep my photos color accurate from the moment I import to Lightroom.

                Comments about Datacolor SpyderCHECKR PRO/CUBE Bundle:

                After several attempts to use the product (which did not come with well written guidelines, only go to the website and read the "how-to" there.) I was highly disappointed. Once I did get a decent reading from the product I found it was not much different personal presets I already had in Lightroom. It has received much praise from multiple photog mags so I was hoping it would be of benefit to me as I my photography has me shooting in so many multiple conditions that change rapidly, I need consistency. Maybe I just didn't have it figured out well enough, but it became such a hassle to try to work with I sent it back.

                I bought this item because I already have Spyder3Pro and they work better together.
                It is very important to have your monitor calibrated to obtain a more accurate result in their work.

                      Love everything about this color matching system except for the lack of documentation for use with Photoshop. All of the videos and documentation for this product is written and produced for Lightroom which is not part of CS6 Master Collection. I don't want to buy Lightroom just for setting up calibrations.
