X-Rite ColorChecker Classic MEGA Target
The ColorChecker Classic MEGA target is designed to deliver true-to-life color reproduction so photographers and filmmakers can predict and control how color will look under any illumination. It is ideal for both digital and film photography for both professional and hobbyist photographers. The ColorChecker Classic MEGA target includes an array of 24 scientifically formulated natural, chromatic, primary, and grayscale squares. Many of the squares represent natural objects, such as human skin, foliage and blue sky. Since they exemplify the color of their counterparts and reflect light the same way in all parts of the visible spectrum, the squares will match the colors of representative samples of natural objects under any illumination, and with any color reproduction process. Each solid patch is formulated individually to produce a pure, flat, rich color.
This MEGA version of the ColorChecker classic is for those applications that require the target to be a very long distance from the camera and still be able to be imaged with enough resolution to be useable for making corrections. Using this industry-standard Classic MEGA targets is easy. Simply include your preferred size ColorChecker Classic MEGA in your photo or video capture and then when editing, use it to create custom camera profiles, color grade video footage or visually compare, measure and analyze differences in color reproduction in any color rendition system. This objective standard will speed up your color correction process and help you avoid costly mistakes and trial-and-error color adjustments.
Global Corrections on Accurate Information
ColorChecker Classic MEGA targets can help you make global corrections based on accurate information. If you shoot a large number of images that all require the same color correction, you know that editing a few key photos and applying your changes can sometimes change colors you didn’t intend to be changed. A shot of the ColorChecker Classic MEGA captured under the same lighting as your images will provide a point of reference, so you can see exactly how changes will affect the rest of your colors before you apply them.
Create Custom DNG Profiles
ColorChecker Classic MEGA target is used by color perfectionists for the past decade to create custom DNG profiles for Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop workflows. You can also build custom ICC camera profiles for use in Capture One (or other ICC compatible software) when you combine ColorChecker Classic MEGA with X-Rite ColorChecker Camera Calibration software. You’ll get accurate color at capture based on specific lighting, camera and lens combination during any given shoot, saving valuable time in edit. It also helps in film photography for visual reference for exposure, contrast and color. The ColorChecker Classic MEGA is also ideal for setting exposure and color in camera; match multiple cameras, color grade log and raw footage, and fine-tune color balance in post.
Create Custom Camera Profiles
Take your digital photography to the next level and create custom camera profiles. Combine the X-Rite Camera Calibration Software (free download) with your Classic MEGA target to quickly and easily create a custom DNG, Dual Illuminant DNG or ICC profiles. Each profile takes into account your camera, lens and lighting combination to provide you with more exact color. The Camera Calibration software supports Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and Capture One workflows, plus any other ICC profile compatible software.
