Helping to achieve accurate color and exposure in an especially compact package, the ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 from X-Rite is a portable and versatile solution to ensure rendering accuracy from the time of capture. Combining four separate targets in a pocket-sized enclosure, the Passport Photo 2 is also characterized by the updated, v1.2 Camera Calibration software for making DNG and ICC camera profiles as well as a dedicated Adobe Photoshop Lightroom plug-in for making custom post production profiles.

Gray Balance Target
An 18% middle gray target has been added to the Passport's design, and this neutral de facto standard target is perfect for ensuring accurate exposures when using reflective light meters as well as for removing unwanted color casts during postproduction.
White Balance Target
Designed to be spectrally neutral and reflect light evenly across the visible spectrum, this white target serves as a neutral reference point to accurately compensate for different lighting conditions. Compared to other seemingly plain, white objects, the spectral response of this target ensures greater accuracy and consistency for creating white balance settings while shooting.
Classic Target
A compact version of the industry standard ColorChecker Classic target, this 24-patch grid is used to ensure accurate color rendering from capture to post-production. It is used in conjunction with calibration software to create custom profiles and allows you to compare camera response to various lighting conditions. The 24 patches represent common colors of natural objects, including sky blue, skin tones, and green foliage, and each patch has been individually colored to produce a solid tone of pure, flat, and rich color with natural reflectivity.

In addition to Color Calibration v1.2 software, this target is also supported by Hasselblad Phocus, Black Magic DaVinci Resolve, and 3D LUT Creator software.
Creative Enhancement Target
Designed for creative color applications, this target includes four rows of color patches for adding repeatable color effects in post-production by selecting the patch with an eyedropper tool. There are two rows of warming and cooling patches in the middle of the target for adding consistent color tone effects to images. The bottom row consists of clipping patches for making black and white point adjustments, and these patches are separated into light and dark groups with 1/3-stop differences between them, with the exception of the last patch which has a 1/10-stop difference, and results in a 32:1 or 5-stop total dynamic range. The top row includes eight hue, saturation, and lightness spectrum patches for ensuring color accuracy across all hues to better assess and edit for unwanted color shift.
Color Calibration Software
Updated to version 1.2, the available Color Calibration software works in conjunction with the Passport Photo 2 to help create custom color profiles and achieve accurate colors during post-production. This revised version offers the ability to create both DNG and ICC camera profiles using the ColorChecker Classic target. The software automatically recognizes the target for straightforward use and, after creating color profiles for different lighting conditions, this process helps to minimize color differences between shoots, better adapt for mixed lighting conditions, and match color balance from scene to scene.

For even greater flexibility, dual-illuminant DNG profiles can be created, which combine images taken under two different light sources in order to create a single profile that can be applied to an even wider variety of lighting conditions. These profiles can be created using any two of 21 supported illuminants in order to offer greater freedom to shoot between various lighting conditions without having to switch profiles.

Additionally, beyond the dedicated Color Calibration software, an Adobe Photoshop Lightroom plug-in is also available for creating custom camera profiles directly in Lightroom Classic and Lightroom Classic CC.
Passport Case
One of the distinguishing features of the Passport Photo 2 is, of course, its pocketable passport-style case. Compared to other oversized targets, which tend to be fragile or susceptible to damage, the compact form factor of the Passport along with the hard-plastic and travel-sized case, makes it easy to carry at all times. The case is also self-standing for propping up the targets in the scene. Additionally, a lanyard is included to keep the targets handy while on a shoot.

I use this for my Resolve Studio color correction and grading. Allows accurate on-set color capture. Tough case w/lanyard - easily fits into any case, around your neck or in your pocket. One star off for the cost - very expensive. Highly recommended if you have the money...saves time in post and time is $$$!

A must have

My first one is over a decade old and have been all over the world it was time to get a new one. I was suspecting that my color patches on the old one were faded and less accurate. It was not too bad at all compared to the new one. The difference in the color profile was small, meaning that this color checker is very high quality.

Recommended for anyone taking RAW images. Photograph the portable ColorChecker and software automatically creates the perfect profile for processing your RAW photos. Automatically set white balance with the click of an eye-dropper. Provides a standard for use with any digital camera, from the past present or future.

Great Colors

White points and color targets work well. The software makes a profile not a preset which is great because colors are adjusted without moving any sliders in Lightroom/ ACR. The one I received had the word Video stamped into the black frame. I wanted the colorchecker for still photograph so this concerned me. Calibrite assured me I had the correct targets but they could not explain the Video stamp. They are investigating but today it's still a mystery.

Great colors IF you use it correctly

I took shots in studio lights, room lights, Bright sun, Shade and mottled sunlight. For the interior shots it worked very well in creating a custom camera calibration (Nikon D850) for use in Lightroom. First trial in outdoor lighting didn't do as well. A fellow seasoned photographer said the exposure must be spot-on in order to get the best results. I reshot, using an incident meter and set the camera accordingly. That worked very well.

Makes color correction for studio shooting a breeze.

Soooo much better than the usual Lightroom Profiles

By James

I use this as a matter of course for pretty much every shoot. The color clarity is so much better than using any of the default Adobe or camera-matching profiles. I only shoot raw so can't comment on any kind of JPEG workflow [you need to shoot the targets raw anyhow]. I use an Expodisc for WB so can't comment on it's usefulness for in-the-field WB, though the skin and scenery WB patches are very good for post-processing refinements. I recommend this to everyone I know who is making the leap from cameraphone to digital camera.

Usually a couple of years after opening the Color chart to sunlight. But I have had my Colorchecker for 9 years now and taking a look at photos I had the ColorChecker in back then there is hardly any difference between then and now compared to the new checker but if your color rendition is super critical the nI would replace every 2 to 4 years

The ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 is a color calibration tool for digital cameras shooting RAW and TIFF. When used properly, it will provide accurate images when the saved profile is applied to the image.
