A Colour-Managed Workflow that Inspires Creativity
ColorChecker Passport offers you an unparalleled tool to attain full colour control and customized creative enhancement from image capture to post-processing.The art of colour management is all about getting your colours to match from input to output. That means your camera captures true colours, your monitor displays them accurately, and your printer produces a photo that matches what you see on screen. The ColorChecker Passport is an essential component to attaining a 100% color-managed workflow. Plus, the included Enhancement target helps you take your vision one step further by providing the creativity to quickly and easily edit and express your colours just as you’ve always imagined. Whether it’s a studio shot, a colourful nature scene or a multiple photo event, you can extend the power of your photo editing software with one-click enhancements that articulate your inspiration.Shooting Raw provides greater flexibility to colour-adjust images based on how a particular camera captures colour. A calibrated Raw workflow minimizes colour differences between cameras and lenses, adapts for mixed lighting, and makes it possible to colour match across different scenes. ColorChecker Passport makes the camera calibration experience fast and easy. You’ll have greater capability to edit colour because you’re starting with a consistent foundation. Plus, you’ll be able to take advantage of your Raw processing software to automatically apply your profiles to a large number of images.If your Raw processing application does not support custom DNG profiles, you can still use ColorChecker Passport to provide a physical reference for colour editing. The Enhancement Target also offers such things as exposure evaluation and one-click white balancing for Raw editing packages that support these features.
Starting with an accurate white balance ensures the colours you capture are true and provides a point of reference for post-shoot editing.The ColorChecker White Balance target is an all-new spectrally flat target that provides a neutral reference point across different lighting conditions that you encounter during a photo shoot. Since the target reflects light equally across the visible spectrum, creating an in-camera custom white balance can properly compensate for varying lighting.You’ll be able to:
- Eliminate colour casts
- Improve the colour preview on your camera’s display so your histograms are more reliable
- Make post production colour editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralize each image individually
Setting a custom white balance for each lighting situation will make the previews on your camera’s built in display more colour correct, make your histograms more reliable, and speed up post production colour editing. Raw shooters can capture anytime during the session to gain these benefits, while JPEG shooters should make it your first shot.
