ColorChecker passport sizes

X-Rite have announced a new range of sizes in their ColorChecker colour reference classic and video targets.


The new sizes include nano, mini, XL and MEGA.

'Now there is a ColorChecker to help every photographer and filmmaker tell their story, no matter the size of their shoot.'

The ColorChecker Classic target is an array of 24 natural object, chromatic, primary and greyscale colours, arranged in four rows. This iconic colour reference target is now available in five sizes – Nano, Mini, Original, XL and MEGA. Simply include your preferred size ColorChecker Classic in your photo or video capture and then when editing, use it to create custom DNG or ICC camera profiles, colour grade video footage or visually compare, measure and analyse differences in colour reproduction in any colour rendition system.  

The ColorChecker Video target was first introduced in 2015 and is now available in 3 sizes – Original, XL and MEGA. This target, developed specifically for the filmmaker workflow, has gained wide adoption by filmmakers, DITs, editors and colourists. It includes chromatic colour chips, skin tone chips and grey reference chips, so that filmmakers can easily set exposure, match multiple cameras and speed up colour grading for ideal colour balance throughout their footage. These targets are great for cine wide shots – landscapes, cityscapes, custom sets; for event filmmaking – concerts, churches, sports, stage; and for aerial filmmaking – drones, booms, planes and helicopters.

 

The five newest products joining the existing ColorChecker line are:

 

  • ColorChecker Classic Nano: 1x1.75” (24x40mm) – for macro or close up photography.
  • ColorChecker Classic Mini: 2.5x4.25”( 63.5x109 mm) – for archival photography or where the protective case of the Passport is too cumbersome.
  • ColorChecker Classic XL: 21x14.75” (53.3x37.5 cm) – for photographers working in large studios, doing long distance photography or camera/lighting testing. This target is available in three configurations: target only, target plus sleeve, target plus case.
  • ColorChecker Classic Mega: 40x60” (100x152 cm) – for photographers working on large sets and doing extreme distance photography or camera/lighting testing.
  • ColorChecker Video Mega: 40x60” (100x152 cm) – for filmmakers working on large sets and doing extreme distance filmmaking or camera/lighting testing.
