Datacolor's SpyderCAPTURE PRO is an all-purpose bundle designed to help photographers, designers and imaging professionals capture true color and have greater control over the color fidelity of the digital process. Images can be assessed and adjusted when captured with a properly calibrated camera and viewed on a calibrated display, enabling true-to-life reproduction of these images.

Tools are included for managing color throughout your digital workflow. The SpyderLENSCAL lets you calibrate your camera and lenses, the SpyderCUBE allows you to control contrast and white point balance, and the SpyderCHECKR lets you control color balance. Calibrate your monitor with the Spyder4ELITE to view your images in brilliant true color.

Each Spyder tool offers precision performance and is easy to use in the studio or on location. Additionally, the rugged aluminum case provides convenient storage and protection so you can safely take the color management tools wherever you're shooting or editing.

          Comments about Datacolor SpyderCAPTURE PRO:

          This is a must have if you're a serious photographer. I edit photo's and video on 2 27" iMac monitors and didn't realize the tinting and gamma differences that was present from being uncalibrated. While I have my programs set up to edit on the left and palettes on the right, it helped me calibrate the monitors to each other so regardless of setup for photo's or video sw, I can use either for primary viewing.

          The lens calibration tool is a must! I found my 1.2 50mm IS lens a little soft in focusing and once I used the tool, it showed that my auto focus plane was just a tad deep. Not any more, though. It's right on the "nuts"! :-)
