Features


The ColorChecker target is an array of 24 scientifically formulated colors that has been the leading industry color reference target for more than 40 years. It is designed to deliver true-to-life color reproduction so that photographers and filmmakers can predict and control how color will look under any illumination.

Each of the 24 colors found on a ColorChecker target represents the actual color of natural objects, such as human skin tone, foliage, and blue sky, and reflects light just like its real-world counterpart. Since these colors exemplify the color of their counterparts in the natural world and reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum, the squares will match the colors of representative samples of natural objects under any illumination, and with any color reproduction process. Each solid patch is formulated individually to produce a pure, flat, rich color.

ColorChecker targets have been used by Color perfectionists for the past decade to create custom DNG profiles for Adobe Lightroom® and Photoshop® workflows. You can also build custom ICC camera profiles for use in Capture One® (or other ICC-compatible software) when you combine ColorChecker targets with Calibrite ColorChecker Camera Calibration software. You’ll get accurate color at capture based on specific lighting, camera, and lens combination during any given shoot, saving valuable time in edit.

Taking advantage of a ColorChecker target is easy. Simply include the ColorChecker in your photo or video capture and then later, while editing use it to compare, measure and analyze differences in color reproduction in any color rendition system.

The ColorChecker can help you make global corrections based on accurate information. If you shoot a large number of images that all require the same color correction, you know that editing a few key photos and applying your changes can sometimes change colors you didn’t intend to be changed. A shot of the ColorChecker captured under the same lighting as your images will provide a point of reference, so you can see exactly how changes will affect the rest of your colors before you apply them.

This objective standard will help you avoid costly mistakes and trial-and-error color adjustments while editing your images or color grading.

Want to know why you need to color manage all the devices in your workflow? Think about walking into an appliance store to shop for TVs. You see a wall of them and the color and detail is different on every one of them? Now imagine you have to edit across them.

If you have no idea if your colours are accurate, how can you possibly hope that others will see your images the same way you do? Calibration is a key first step in perfecting your artistic vision.

If you want accurate color and are looking to make print that look like what you see on your monitor then a high-end, accurate monitor that is calibrated and profiled is critical.

Michael Clark

We spend an inordinate amount of time and money on the capture and processing side of our craft. Ultimately, however, we view the fruit of our work as a print or a slide show or on the web. It is critical to ensure that what I have spent time and money on to process, looks the same way in print or on the web and there is only one way to guarantee this and that is with Color Management.
