X-Rite MSCCVPR overview

  • 1Description

The X-Rite ColorChecker Video is a two-sided color calibration tool that allows you achieve more consistent results, quicker, and with more ease. Although designed for the professional, non-professionals can also benefit from using this tool. The ColorChecker can be used during production to set camera white balance among different cameras or varying lighting environments. Recording the chart can speed up balancing the color of multiple shots in post, leaving you more time to work on creative choices.

The included color calibration chart contains an updated design philosophy from the standard charts that were developed for print and still photo work. The grayscale provides white, black, dark gray, and 40 IRE exposure patches, allowing you to adjust your lighting to protect highlights from clipping, while maintaining detail in the shadow areas. The color chips on the side of the grayscale contain columns of targets, which display vertically on a waveform monitor, for improved readability. The white target is a 60% target, providing an even brightness that makes setting white balance consistent across different lighting conditions. The chart is large enough to fill your frame in close-ups or be visible in a wide shots.

Grayscale and Chip Target
The chip chart has been simplified and redesigned to be more meaningful. It features a combination grayscale chart with four horizontal strips: white, 40 IRE, dark gray, and black. These four stripes allow you to set your lighting and exposure, providing an objective white, black gray and skin tone target that you can use to adjust your camera's exposure and balance out any color cast in the camera or in post.
In addition to the grayscale targets, the chart includes vertical skin tone targets, a seven-step grayscale, and saturated and de-saturated chromatic colors. With the chromatic chips lined up vertically, the chip chart renders neatly on a vectorscope and waveform monitor, as opposed to a standard chip chart that displays wildly.
White Balance Target
Creating in-camera white balance helps to start at a neutral point for all images you capture. Balancing your footage to a consistent color balance makes editing go smoother, and is less jarring when cutting from one shot to the next. The consistent color balance can also speed up color correction, and with the increased speed and ease, you may find yourself with more time and energy to explore creative color choices.

X-Rite MSCCVPR reviews

ColorChecker Video is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Defective... again for the third time. I first purchased the grey scale card which arrived defective with the plastic sleeve stuck to the grey areas. So I returned it for exchange, the second one came exactly the same. So I returned it for a refund. I decided to go with this Colorchecker Video card hoping it would be fine, but no such luck. Same issue, plastic stuck to the grey areas leaving very distinct shiny areas and swirls (see photo). I think Xrite has a quality control issue on their hands. I am returning this (third) one yet again for a refund. I have contacted Xrite head office in regards to this issue. I have wasted 3 months (live in Canada) of back and forth not to mention my time in repackaging and so forth, still without a colorchecker. My advice is to go with another product until Xrite can sort out this issue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Easy to Use! We use this as a standard color reference tool to simplify editing and color grading in Davinci Resolve 12.5. Very easy to use. With multiple cameras and long shots from our balcony to the stage, and somewhat sub-optimal stage lighting, we discovered that we need to tilt the ColorChecker back and forth a few times and face each video camera to get a good black out of the ColorChecker that we can use as a reference in editing. The color correction and look produced by the Color Checker in Resolve seems equal or slightly better than the automatic clip color grading feature built into Resolves color grading software. We appreciate getting nearly identical looks out of different cameras with differing gamut and color responses.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from unusable it came with the plastic stuck to the card which makes it glossy and reflective. which makes it totally useless. judging by the comments here it looks like this is a very common problem with these. how is this even allowed in a product that costs this much money?? is it really that hard to wrap the card in a cloth or something that won't stick to it??? UNACCEPTABLE FOR THIS KIND OF PRICE!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've thought about returning the second one. Don't buy it. I returned the first on and the second one has similar problems. The gray area is mottled due to the plastic it was packaged in. The mottling caused a part of the flat gray area to become glossy which will reflect light differently. This makes it harder to match 2 cameras in the edit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The one you want A nice step up from a cheaper color card that was printed offset, where the halftone dots were visible through the DSLR viewfinder at HD (can't even imagine 4K.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Made skin tone accurate after white balancing and helped set exposure.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Get the Video Parsport Would get the Video Pasport over this one. I can see it becoming damaged very quickly. Not as robust as I would have liked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality chart Great for creating and matching looks in the field. The range of grays and color allows for more control in color correction in post, especially when dealing with mixed light sources or inexpensive LED lighting that may require more work to color balance properly.
