The ColorChecker Passport is a great tool for easily generating camera profiles and can significantly reduce your image processing time. It is particularly useful for Lightroom users as it makes the profile making process super simple, and can much improve your results.

ColorChecker Passport Photo is a powerful ‘capture to edit’ color solution for any photographer looking for more accurate, consistent color and creative flexibility. And when you combine ColorChecker Passport Photo with Adobe® Imaging solutions you’ll gain even greater benefits. ColorChecker Passport Photo combines three photographic targets into one pocket size protective, multi-positionable case that adjusts to any scene. Together with the included camera calibration software, you get the ultimate in functionality, flexibility and portability.

There are so many ways to incorporate ColorChecker Passport Photo into your Raw workflow. Whether you take advantage of the entire solution, or just a couple of ColorChecker Passport’s many features, you’ll realize improved quality and productivity almost immediately.

  • Creative Enhancement Target – neutralize and create your look with enhancement patches; check and evaluate shadow details or highlight clipping; check and control color shifting
  • Classic Target – industry standard color reference target for creating DNG profiles and for evaluating specific colors
  • White Balance Target – create custom in-camera white balance for a consistent white point in a set of images, eliminating the need to correct each image later
  • Camera Calibration Software – includes both a desktop application and an Adobe® Lightroom® Plug-In for creating custom DNG profiles
  • Portable Protective Case – adjusts to accommodate multiple positions so you can adjust the targets to any scene.

You’ll still gain many great benefits when you include ColorChecker Passport Photo in your workflow. Each target provides added value.
