[Insert Image strip here] The ColorChecker Passport Video includes the following targets: VIDEO COLOR TARGET Specifically designed for today’s video production workflow. The Video Color target includes four rows of color patches designed for video capture and editing. This target includes four different rows of color chips that, when combined, give you a powerful tool to speed up color grading. • Chromatic Colors: six chips specifically designed to align with the color axis on a vectorscope • Skin Tones: ranging from light to dark with subtle undertones • Linear Grayscale: six steps for even gray balance, including highlight and shadow regions • Highlight and Shadow Grays: six patches black and white patches, including a high gloss black to capture the full range of your camera GRAYSCALE TARGET Enhanced for achieving ideal exposure for video production. The Grayscale target includes 3 rows of white, 40IRE gray, and high gloss black. This target helps you: • align the exposure and contrast of cameras you may be matching • ensures that mid-tones, such as flesh tones, are rendered accurately WHITE BALANCE TARGET Starting with an accurate white balance ensures the colors you capture are true and provides a point of reference for post-shoot editing. The White Balance target is a spectrally flat target that provides a neutral reference point across different lighting conditions that you encounter during a video shoot. Since the target reflects light equally across the visible spectrum, creating an in-camera custom white balance can properly compensate for varying lighting. You’ll be able to: • Eliminate color casts • Improve the color preview on your camera’s display so your histograms are more reliable • Make post production color editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralize each frame individually Why can’t I use just any white object? White balancing on a piece of paper or other gray element in the scene may seem like a simple workaround, but most objects are not actually neutral under all lighting conditions; and they’re certainly not consistent. An inaccurate white balance will result in color casts, and a lack of consistency between lighting conditions FOCUS TARGET This handy target will always be at your fingertips to facilitate center and edge focusing. ColorChecker Passport Photo is so convenient and portable. Make sure you take it with you to every shoot! The ColorChecker Passport’s travel-sized case provides the ultimate in convenience. Made of a rugged material, it houses and protects the four ColorChecker targets from the elements and daily use to extend their lifespan.
