Fix the Color in Your Photos and Videos with Datacolor’s New SpyderCHECKR 24 Camera Calibrator
If you want to correct the color in your photos and videos but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg doing it, Datacolor has just introduced the SpyderCHECKR 24, an affordable priced color calibration tool for your camera.
Retailing for $49 and thin enough to slide into a (large) coat pocket or laptop bag, SpyderCHECKR 24 features a 24-pigment patch target on one side for color correction and a gray face on the other for white balance and exposure adjustment either in camera or during post processing.
The color face lets photographers color correct their images automatically in Adobe Photoshop ACR, Adobe Lightroom, Hasselblad Phocus, and Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve.
Camera calibration with the SpyderCHECKR 24 is not limited to Raw files, but can also be applied to JPEGs and video clips, according to Datacolor.
While color calibration and white balance adjustment using targets can be intimidating for some photographers, Datacolor does have fairly comprehensive educational tools on its website for using the calibration target and accompanying software.
