Datacolor SpyderCUBE RAW Calibration Tool

The SpyderCUBE RAW Calibration Tool from Datacolor is a compact (1.5"/3.8 cm square), digital color balancing tool that not only allows you to correct the color temperature but also the exposure, brightness and black point of your images. The SpyderCUBE is a spectrally neutral three-dimensional tool that's small enough to fit in your pocket or camera bag and gives you all the features needed to easily adjust your images in post-production. Its multi-sided construction allows special attention to highlights and shadows, and contains more features for image control than a gray card or white balance tool.

Just place the SpyderCUBE in the lighting conditions under which you will be photographing. Orient the cube so that the lower black face, containing the black trap, is at the bottom front, and the two split white/gray faces are both visible. Take a photograph that includes the Cube. It makes several measurements that make it possible for you to be confident that your colors are accurate, your shadows and highlights are properly exposed, and your image is adjusted to the ideal density, regardless of the lighting conditions. These functions give you the data you need:

1 Chrome Ball - Measures catchlight to analyze specular highlights.
2 White Face(s) - Define highlights in relation to catchlight.
3 Gray Face(s) - Measures color temperature and midtone response.
4 Black Face - Defines shadows in relation to black trap.
5 Black Trap - Defines absolute black.

By using SpyderCUBE under the same lighting conditions as your photos, you can optimally adjust all the
photos in RAW conversion using the information the Spyder 3D shot provides. The SpyderCUBE is easy enough for the advanced amateur and sophisticated enough for professionals.

Reference tool to achieve accurate colors without trial-and-error operations in RAW processing.
SpyderCUBE provides all relevant light information for the RAW adjustments:
* Chrome Ball to measure catchlight to analyze overexposed areas.
* White Faces to define highlights in relation to catchlight.
* Spectrally neutral 18% Grey Faces to measure color temperature and midtones in all lighting conditions.
* Black Trap to define absolute black.
* Black Face to define shadows in relation to black trap.
Easy to use and compatible with all RAW converter software.
Essential for RAW processing but can also be used when processing images in a JPG workflow.
Small and handy, it fits in any photo bag
Ideal for location shooting (outdoor or indoor) and studios
Capture accurate color without a lot of trial and error manipulation
Spectrally Neutral, so that the Cube responds accurately to all lighting conditions
Provides reference values to check and adjust RAW control settings
Includes Black Trap for shadow detail control
Allows users to instantly correct color images by setting color temperature value
Allows users to accurately adjust shadows and highlight detail in any RAW image

The Datacolor SpyderX we purchased is great. Really makes the colors match on our computer VS what we are seeing in person. We highly recommend using this product compared to all of the competition's copycat products. This was well worth the investment!

Outstanding product and quick delivery from B&H - thank you! The Datacolor SpyderX Capture Pro is perfect for color matching my work. No instructions are included in the box BUT easy to follow guidance is found on Datacolor's website.

I've used this with a Macbook Pro from 2018 and my NEC Spectraview monitor on my i9 powerhouse PC and it worked great via the included software as well as NEC's Spectraview software. The lens calibration target, color checker and cube are also great. I can't complain in the least. Great product for a great price.

A delicate piece of equipment but truly a game changer

I am speaking as a Windows PC user, and I can't recommend this product enough. It is true that if you don't follow things just right you won't get proper results, please take every step seriously. Also, if your software isn't fully up to date there will be troubling results. All of that said, this product is an absolute game changer. I do quite a bit of giclée printing at home, and this set finally freed me of guess work, and endless sheets of high end paper being wasted getting things just right. If you work in photography or do sort of printing, this set will be worth its weight in gold. I'm clearly not alone as the Spyder line continues to be the industry standard.

Waste of money

I was really excited to calibrate my Benq photography monitor with the SpyderX Elite. After the first calibration it ruined Adobe from 98 percent to 63 !!!!!! Also ruined sRGB from its inital value I tried now to do calibration again and now the program does not even recognize the sensor anymore

A must-tool

Does this work with studio SDI monitors as well, like the Cine 13 series or TVLogic monitors? We will send monitors in to be calibrated professionally from time to time, but hoping to do this in house.
