X-Rite: discover the five new ColorChecker sizes
The products add to both the ColorChecker Classic and ColorChecker Video target lines, and range from Nano to MEGA sizes
The ColorChecker Classic target has been used within the photo industry for more than 40 years. Following the new additions, the reference target is available in five sizes – Nano, Mini, Original, XL and MEGA. When the ColorChecker Classic is included in photo or video capture, it can be used 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, all during the editing process.
The ColorChecker Video target, introduced in 2015, is now available in three sizes – Original, XL and MEGA. This target, developed specifically for the film-maker, can be used by film-makers, DITs, editors and colourists. It includes chromatic colour chips, skin tone chips and grey reference chips, so that film-makers can set exposure, match multiple cameras and speed up colour grading, and achieve greater colour balance throughout their footage. The various targets can be used for cine wide shots, event film-making and aerial film-making.
The five new product sizes are:
|ColorChecker Classic Nano||1×1.75in (24x40mm)|
|ColorChecker Classic Mini||2.5×4.25in(63.5x109mm)|
