X-Rite 421869 overview

  • 1Description

The ColorChecker Mini Gray Balance Card from Xrite is a pocket size version of the 18% gray reference square used in the standard 24-patch ColorChecker. This target is scientifically engineered to provide a precise uniform surface that is spectrally neutral (reflects equal amounts of red, blue and green) in all types of light conditions. Photographers can use the ColorChecker Gray Scale as the first reference shot in a series to easily correct image color under most lighting conditions by balancing on the mid tone gray value.

For the studio photographer, the X-Rite ColorChecker Gray Scale lets them quickly set up the proper studio lighting ratio between main and fill lights for capturing accurate color without a lot of after-the-fact manipulation. In addition, the ColorChecker Gray Scale provides reference values that can quickly be checked and used to adjust colors within most common photo processing software packages.

Provides reference values to check and adjust colors
Allows users to instantly correct color images by setting the mid-tone gray value
Enables quick setup of proper studio lighting ratio between main and fill lights
4 x 7" (10.2 x 17.8cm) - ideal for location shooting

ColorChecker Mini Gray Balance Card is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is what it is. It is what it is, a white card... nonetheless, it is very useful. I photograph a lot of art, paintings, watercolor, etc. and the color reproduction needs to be very accurate. This card helps make that happen. It is small so it is easy to carry. I believe it is an accurate white so I have piece of mind, and bottom line, it works.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but bigger is better. This card should be used to set the balance only when the light sources are not in an axial position. If you pretend to have the whole card in the field of view of your camera, you may have to position your camera so close to the object that you would block the lighting and make a shadow on the card. This may spoil your balance pre-set. Try to have the card evenly illuminated. Bring the light source closer to the subject without blocking the light... Or just get a bigger gray card.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essential for accurate color managment I use this product to set the white balance in preparation for documentation photographs. It is accurate and easy to use with my Nikon D300 camera.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Color and midpoint awa! Great I used this small card, (not shirt pocket small), to take family photos over the Thanksgiving Holiday and it surely worked out because I always shoot RAW/JPEG. Take the first photo with the card in it process in raw and select white balance for that image. Then copy that calibration to the others in that set. If you move for another set then you should use the card again, etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice small size, works great. This card is a great size to take along on location. I use it for outdoor portraits - I have my model hold the card, I shoot a photo, then I have the model toss it aside and I do the rest of my shooting. I use that initial shot with the white balance card to correct any exposure problems and do color correcting on the whole series of photos in Adobe Camera Raw. Works like a charm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy White Balance Tool I bought this to help control white balance in tough lighting situations. I have only used it minimally in the two weeks since getting it, but it has helped. It is a little fragile, and will bend easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes white-balancing RAW photos easy! Small size is easy to carry. Makes white balance so, so easy to set!
