Audio Video Photo Light since 2000
Since more than 1976, the ColorChecker® Classic charter has been the most natural reference charter for image reproduction so that photographers and filmmakers can predict and control how color will appear in any light.
The ColorChecker Classic target is designed to deliver true-to-life color reproduction so photographers can predict and control how color will look under any illumination. It is ideal for both digital and film photography for both professional and hobbyist photographers.
The ColorChecker Classic target includes a patented array of 24 scientifically prepared natural, chromatic, primary and grayscale squares. Many of the squares represent natural objects, such as human skin, foliage and blue sky. Since they exemplify the color of their counterparts 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.
Photograph the ColorChecker Classic target in the same lighting as your images and use it as a visual reference to help with color correction. In addition to X-Rite’s Camera Calibration software, the ColorChecker Classic target is supported by a variety of third-party software solutions, including Black Magic DaVinci Resolve and Hasselblad Phocus.
