For those who find accurate colors in their photography important, this the product to get! Most have heard of products to calibrate monitors and to profile their printers but that only works on maintaining color consistency between the monitor and your print out. Now, another critical component in the process is capturing the colors accurately when you take the photo. Until recently, most photographers thought that if they used a gray card or color checker to get the white balance, they would get accurate colors when they processed their photos based on the gray patch/card. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Clicking for the white balance just fixes the white balance but does not address the nuances in colors that each camera produces.

When one enters a TV store, he might see several TVs showing the exact same program but will notice that they may not reflect the same colors. All may show a red balloon, but the particular hue, brightness, and saturation of the color red may vary from TV to TV. That is a typical characteristic of a lot of digital devices including digital cameras. (If you check the dslr reviews in dpreview.com, you can see where they compare the cameras color rendition to other similar cameras, and they are never fully alike).

So if a photographer is critical about color, he would also need a way to profile his camera so that he can complete the color management process - accurate and consistent colors from capture (taking the photo) - to monitor - to printing. Now, the Spyder Checkr allows for a relatively simple process of getting accurate colors from the photos you take.

This product has both a set of color targets and software that integrates with some key RAW processing software.

Used item was shipped to me. Seller did give me discount after the fact. -1 star for shipping me used product, -1 star for difficulty of focusing on gray cards with AF.
Other then the minus, very nice product. Wish they made a more portable/smaller version.
