Recently announced, the SpyderCHECKR 24 from Datacolor is a new addition to their product line, which includes the flagship 48 patch SpyderCHECKR. This new tool for photographers and videographers is a precise and versatile camera color calibration and white balance target for both photo and video color control.
The Datacolor SpyderCHECKR 24 target offers, says the company,”the accuracy of full size, spectrally designed pigment patches, in a thin, portable, affordable color target designed for both still and motion imaging. SpyderCHECKR 24’s gray face provides in-camera and post-process white balance and exposure adjustment, while the color face allows you to color correct your capture automatically in Adobe Photoshop ACR, Adobe Lightroom, Hasselblad Phocus, and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.”
The Spydercheckr 24 can be used in three different ways: as a camera calibration tool, with the new Spydercheckr software, as an in-camera white balance tool for still and motion and as a reference target, for catalog work, fine art reproduction, and all photo and motion capture.
“The biggest advantage of the system is that camera calibration is not limited to RAW files but can also be applied to JPEGs and video too,” said Lee Varis, professional photographer and digital imaging artist. “For imaging professionals who shoot a combination of still and motion, especially site photography and videography, SpyderCHECKR is a game changer.”
Portable (it has 15cm wide, 21 cm high, 4mm thick when closed) the SpyderCHECKR 24 costs $49.00 USD at photo and video retailers or online.
