Perfect - everything I expected,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: X-Rite MSCCPP ColorChecker Passport (Electronics)
Im a professional photographer and use the digital-camera color checker, which is a rather large and bulky device to say the least, it is also complex to create and apply profiles.
The new X-rite passport ROCKS..! plain and simple.. it is easy to use, naively with lightroom, and easy with PhaseOne Capture. The quality of the profiles is not quite matching the digital camera checker, but nobody in their right mind would expect that. The passport create a very use-able profile in a matter of seconds.
Here is how it works.
1. snap a shot with the passport in the same light as you are working.
2. select image in Lightroom, then select EXPORT and export to X-rite.. this will create a profile, I suggest naming the profile by the date and album it applies to.
3. restart lightroom, go to develop, select the profile in camera profile, then sync to the rest of the album.
NOTE - if you have several lighting environments in the same folder, shoot a passport shot for each light change, then apply to the images which matches that passport.
The card also have a set of off-white patches for warming or cooling portraits and another set for landscape, use them to set the whitepoint in a image to warm or cool as desired.
X-rite have made available a very well designed instruction video for download from their site.
Overall, this is a very successful product, it does what I expected and it does it well. If you shoot digital and am concerned about color management, this is a MUST HAVE product.

Hi Bill, I am thinking about getting this product. How or where did you find out how to use it with C1? Most info is for the Adobe software.
