Description

The ColorChecker White Balance target is now improved to enhance its effectiveness as a tool for white balancing a digital camera. When this card was first introduced to the market in 2003, popular opinion was that in order to accurately set the white balance of a camera the target needed to be white. However, through extensive testing with the latest major digital camera models, we have found that a more accurate color to use is a light gray. Therefore, the lightness level of the color has been changed to match the same formula currently used in the ColorChecker Passport. Lightness is not the only change. The target is also more spectrally neutral than the prior white formula. This ensures there is no color bias when using the target for white balancing and delivers a better color rendition. The new enhanced color formula will give photographers another level of color accuracy in their color managed digital workflow.

ColorChecker Chart

The ColorChecker is a checkerboard array of 24 scientifically prepared colored squares in a wide range of colors. Many of these squares represent natural objects of special interest, such as human skin, foliage and blue sky. These squares are not only the same color as their counterparts, but also reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum. Because of this unique feature, the squares will match the colors of natural objects under any illumination and with any color reproduction process.

Standard of Comparison

The ColorChecker provides a non-subjective standard of comparison to help determine the true color balance of any color rendition system. It provides the needed standard for comparing, measuring and analyzing differences in color reproduction in various processes, thereby avoiding costly mistakes.
