Solutions for filmmakers
Video shooters will want to have the X-Rite ColorChecker Video XL in their tool kit. This extra-large format color and exposure target is well-suited for working at greater distances and wider shooting angles. Twice as large as the standard ColorChecker Video, this XL version eliminates the need to move your camera or adjust the focal length simply to record the target in the scene.
Besides its larger size, the X-Rite ColorChecker Video XL target contains the same chromatic colors, skin tones, and gray chips as the other versions, making it suitable for use with waveforms, vectorscopes, zebras, and other tools for affecting color and exposure. Its usual price is $399.00 but at Filmtools it is available with $70.00 off, meaning you’ll only pay $329.00.
If you need to carry your the X-Rite ColorChecker Video XL target around and want to protect it, then the best option is to buy the X-Rite ColorChecker Video XL with Protective Sleeve, which includes the large-scale version of the ColorChecker to help ensure accurate color balance and exposure, as well as a polyester sleeve for protecting it when not in use.
