X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 Announced : Colorchecker grey

X-Rite has announced the ColorChecker Passport Photo 2, an update to their calibration device which helps photographers make sure that colours are correct in their images. 

The ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 includes an 18% grey target card and updated software allowing you to create custom ICC camera profiles for Capture One Pro. There's also the added support of ColorChecker Digital SG target.

The X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Photo was first released a decade ago. "Our original ColorChecker Passport quickly became an industry standard for managing colour at capture," says Liz Quinlisk, Global Business Unit Manager, Photo & Video at X-Rite Incorporated. "Now, with the added functionality of a grey balance target and ICC camera profiling, it’s more powerful than ever. Not only have we broadened our ability to serve Capture One and other ICC workflow users, but every photographer will have all the targets they need in a very portable, protective case."


One image can change us.

A picture, a moment can change the way we feel. Change how we see ourselves. Change our understanding and change the rules. Provoke and change history.

What does ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 Include?

X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 Announced :  ColorChecker Passport Photo 2


NEW Camera Calibration Software v2.0
Now create a custom DNG or ICC camera profile utilising an X-Rite ColorChecker Classic or Digital SG target. Camera profiling ensures accurate colour at capture based on specific lighting, camera and lens combination during any given shoot, saving valuable time in edit. The newly supported ColorChecker Digital SG target offers an extended gamut to create a more accurate ICC profile.


NEW Grey Balance Target
Often referred to as middle grey, the 18% Grey Balance target is the de facto industry standard reference used to set proper camera exposure or check lighting ratios and light distribution, which is especially important for portrait photography. It can be used with either a reflective handheld light meter, or in-camera meter for determining exposure and can also be used to set neutral balance and remove colour casts.


White Balance Target
Create custom in-camera white balance for a consistent white point across a set of images with no need to correct each individual image later.

Lightroom Plug-In
