This item, traditionally used as a reference target in photography for reproduction and more, has a long and distinguished history. X-Rite bought this industry standard target card from Macbeth, or more precisely, Gretag-Macbeth Inc. as part of the buyout. Some might recognize it in a much smaller scale as one part of the three targets which help comprise all three card and software combinations marketed as X-Rite ColorChecker Passport bundles. If you wish to have any hope of beginning to manage your color you must calibrate your display and all devices connected to it including output devices like printers and each type of paper. That requires an accepted industry standard target, a measuring device and appropriate calibrating software. If you are a photographer or designer involved in the reproduction of photographic color that will be all old hat. If you shoot RAW files, you will particularly appreciate the difference it can make. If controlling color in your work in general is what you want--we all need it--I encourage you to learn as much as you can because this target card is only the beginning. It is one simple part of a system that is as basic as it gets. If you are serious about color for publication or exhibition printing, you must trust what you see under controlled conditions, according to graphic arts conventions in order to make quick, precise judgements. We need an education to become sufficiently knowledgeable to color correct our photographs according to industry standards. By that I mean standardized conventions that are independent of any one user's preferences or personal opinions. It is in the sharing of such conventions that allows meaningful communication about color with other professionals who also adopt national standards. Otherwise what we do on our own is arbitrary.Read more ›

What can I say? If you order a color checker, you know what it is, what to expect and how to use it. I wanted it to color calibrate my negative & slide film scans, because scanning produces color casts. All I can say as a review is that the product is all I expected, with vibrant colors that don't change hue as viewing angle changes and is made of good quality plastic that seems it's built to last.

The chart itself is great, just as I expected it, but the paper storage sleeve it comes with is clearly not made to last. It is made of a very thin cardstock (or perhaps a moderately thick paper), and will not last long at all in a bag with other gear.

I've used photoshop since 1996. Learned Lightroom a few years ago, strictly as a hobby but I'd always struggled to get accurate color. Spyder monitor calibration device didn't fix, and I stopped using my own printer because the color was always completely off. Some scenes were perfect, in others the grass was too blue or the greens were too purple, etc. With the ColorChecker I finally have accurate color, at least on my screen. You basically treat each new shoot as a separate experience if it has unique lighting characteristics. Take a picture of the color checker, import it with the plugin, then name it something useful like "Outside, Late afternoon overcast" Different lighting situations need different profiles, etc.

One caveat, the plugin won't work if your image has clipping. For whatever reason it didn't work when my wife took a bunch of interior pictures under fluorescent lights recently. I've only had that happen once, and it would suck if it happened in some situation you would likely never recreate, like on vacation, but I haven't seen it since.

Otherwise, it's solid and fits easily in my camera case, which is like 9x7x5 inches.

This works. It is big and unwieldy in the field, but manageable. It is perfect for creating ICC profiles for cameras and scanners and is the only approved solution for creating lightroom calibration profiles.

It is not as convenient as a whibal or other greycard, but if used it does give you a whole lot more calibration options.

I don't have a good way to carry it since it is too big for my photobags, but all in all it is sturdy and heavy duty and seems to take the abuse it gets outside the bag.

My one complaint is the price. It was way more than its worth physically, but it is a bargain when it comes to camera or scanner profiling costs.

This was a great product. I returned mine though to get the Passport (smaller version). This was a bit to big for me. I wanted something I could hold in my hand in front of the camera and snap a shot. This, although works great in correcting colors, was to big. Its as big as an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. So if you dont care about the size, this is cheaper and works just as good as the passport.

I was amazed at the color correction this gave me. Im not a pro but I do like to have accurate colors.

I really should have bought this a long time ago. If you don't already have one and you are reading this -just buy it. Next you are going to want something smaller so you will purchase the X-Rite MSCCPP ColorChecker Passport like I did. You really need both. The larger target is great inside and some outdoor shoots but you really can't beat the passport for portability. The Color Checker does the job and it costs what it costs. It would be nice if it cost less but the custom Lightroom color profiles for each of my camera bodies is well worth the investment. I also put this purchase off too long: Datacolor Spyder4Elite S4EL100 Colorimeter for Display Calibration There really is no point worrying about color management if you haven't calibrated your display. After reading many reviews I decided to purchase the Datacolor Spyder4Elite instead of the X-Rite ColorMunki or i1 Display Pro bundles. I'm very pleased with the X-Rite color checkers + Spyder4Elite combination.
