In professional photography, what you see in-camera is not necessarily what you'll see on the monitor, and likewise what you see on the monitor is not what you'll see on the printed photo, unless everything is calibrated. Datacolor offers a variety of calibration tools that enable you to ensure that your printed photos will look exactly as you expect them to. This particular B&H Kit packages the Datacolor Spyder5ELITE, for monitors, with the SpyderCHECKR, for color calibrating your cameras.
The Spyder5ELITE allows you to match laptop, desktop, and studio monitors, and front projectors, to a single standard. And the SpyderCHECKR lets you color calibrate your cameras, perform precision in-camera white balance, and record known-color samples. It helps you capture consistent color from day to day and camera to camera and apply these results easily in your workflow with raw import software such as Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom.
