Fantastic Color Checker

I really like the large size of the DataColor Spyder checker. Very comfortable to use.

I really like how this is designed. First, it comes in a clam shell case so you do not need to worry about damaging the paper. I like the 1/4 20 thread to attach it to a stand but have yet to use it. And then, the fact it can flip over so each card has two sides is beesknees.

Clean product, great price and value

This product does NOT work with Lightroom Cloud Version

By James

This product only works with Lightroom Classic. It would have saved me several hours of futile effort if this information was available before my purchase. Support from Datacolor was surly and implied that it was all Adobes' fault that their product doesn't work with the current version of Lightroom.

It's worth the money

As someone who constantly shoots videos for YouTube and work, having this has changed the way I Color correct my footage! Shooting with an 8-bit video Mirrorless camera and trying to match it to a BMPCC4K has never been easier than it is with this.

Can't beat it for the price

Comes with a durable metal shell and easy to set up on a light stand or tripod to get color matching between cameras.

Is this color checker work both for Adobe RGB and for sRGB?
Asked by: Michael
When using the Datacolor SpyderCHECKR Color Chart and Calibration Tool for Digital Cameras, files must be saved in the AdobeRGB color space for the purpose of exporting target files to the SpyderCHECKR software. You may edit your images in sRGB or any other color space you choose which works with your workflow, but the instruction manual states that files sent to the SpyderCHECKR software need to be saved in the AdobeRGB color space.

question

Will this work with PS Elements 14? I can't seem to find how to get to the presets. I shot the color checkr and saved it as a .tiff but I can't find the presets in Adobe Camera Raw.
Asked by: Ricky T.
According to page 9 of the User Guide included with the Datacolor SPYDERChecker, it states If you use Photoshop or Elements, you will do your RAW import through Adobe CameraRaw (ACR), then you will need to launch the SpyderCheckr software manually, as there is no auto-launch option in ACR. The SpyderCheckr software only auto-launches with Lightroom. For more information, you would have to contact Datacolor directly by clicking the Submit a Ticket Here link under the General Inquiries section on their Contact Us webpage on their website. <a href= http://spyder.datacolor.com/consumer-support/ target= _blank >http://spyder.datacolor.com/consumer-support/</a>
