X-Rite ColorChecker 18 Percent Gray Balance

The X-Rite ColorChecker Gray Balance Target helps in obtaining instant gray balance, evaluating studio lighting and making fast color adjustments for both photo and video shoots. Using the ColorChecker 18% Gray Balance target for reflective spot exposure metering will give you the confidence that your images and video footage are exposed as accurately as possible with the same 18% gray reference square found in the 24-patch ColorChecker Classic target. The gray is scientifically engineered to provide a precise uniform surface that is spectrally neutral, meaning it reflects equal amounts of red, blue and green in all types of lighting conditions.

Accurate Imaging

The perceived color of white changes based on ambient conditions—outdoors it is perceived to be cooler; indoors, warmer; and under fluorescent light, greener. ColorChecker Gray Balance gives you the power to adjust your digital camera's color sensitivity to exactly match the ambient lighting conditions, in effect changing what the camera sees. Even in a controlled studio environment, establishing an accurate custom gray balance ensures an accurate image and the best possible photo images or video footage from the start of each new session.

Ideal for Photography

The ColorChecker Gray Balance target will help you obtain instant gray balance, evaluate studio lighting and make quick color adjustments, ensuring your camera’s Raw photo image or video footage accurately portrays real life. It is ideal for exposure metering and gray balance for more accurate photographic color rendering. You can use this handy portable tool to adjust your camera’s color sensitivity to exactly match the ambient lighting conditions. For photography, you can use the ColorChecker 18% Gray Balance target to check films, lights filters and paper. It also helps verify the gray balance of cameras, lenses and lighting combinations.
