Creative Enhancement Target
The Creative Enhancement Target adds a higher level of colour creativity and control to your workflow. It includes four rows of colour patches designed for image editing that can be instantly applied with just the click of an eyedropper.
Two rows of warming and cooling patches in the middle serve as a creative guide for you to create pleasing and repeatable edits. Creatively refine the colour of your image by adding warmth to skin tones or boost the deep greens or blues in a landscape. Simply click and sync your selection to other images that were shot under that same lighting to create pleasing edits – it’s that simple!
A row of clipping patches across the bottom serve as a visual reference for judging, controlling and editing images for shadow details or highlight clipping. The clipping patches are separated into two groups: light and dark. Each patch is 1/3 F-stop difference between them with the exception of the last black patch. The exposure difference between the darkest and next darkest patch is approximately 1/10th of a stop, and the dynamic range of the target is about 32:1 (5 stops).
The top HSL (hue, saturation, lightness) row includes 8 spectrum patches to ensure colour fidelity across all hues so that you can evaluate and edit for any colour shifts.
Camera Calibration Software
Create both custom DNG and/or ICC camera profiles using the industry standard 24-patch ColorChecker Classic Target or the ColorChecker Digital SG Target together with either the stand-alone ColorChecker Camera Calibration software or the Adobe Lightroom® Plug-In.
This advanced camera profiling technology provides excellent results with either reference target, producing profiles that work exceptionally well under virtually any lighting condition. Auto-detection will locate the target automatically making the profile creation process a breeze. Whether you are shooting with just one camera or multiple cameras, colour perfectionists can easily establish an accurate colour foundation and maintain control of their colours.
- Minimise colour differences between cameras and lenses
- Adapt for mixed lighting
- Match colour balance across different scenes
Dual-Illuminant DNG Profiles
A dual-illuminant profile combines images taken under two different light sources to create a single profile, which can be applied to an even wider variety of lighting conditions. Dual-Illuminant profiles can be made with any two of twenty-one supported illuminants, giving you the freedom to move between most lighting conditions without switching profiles.
ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 was designed for absolute convenience and portability, so that you can take it with you to every shoot. The travel-sized case is made of a rugged plastic material that houses and protects the four targets from the elements and extends their lifespan.
The self-standing Passport case adjusts to multiple positions, allowing you the flexibility to place the targets exactly where you need them. Plus, the included lanyard ensures your Passport is close at hand during every photo shoot.
