As a suitably impressed X-Rite user, the new X-Rite ColorChecker Passport looks like a great tool for easy colour correction with Lightroom. ColorChecker Passport is designed as a ‘capture to edit’ color solution, using 3 colour target cards (Color Checker, Creative Enhancement Card and Gray Card). When used with Lightroom, combined with the ColorChecker Passport software, these cards can create custom DNG Profiles. The cards themselves sit in a protective case, which also serves as a stand. The product is designed for both landscape and people photography. It also allows a range of colour tones besides neutralising colour casts, via the Creative Enhancement card.
Seth Resnick (D65/Pixel Genius) introduces the CC passport in the video on the website, along with showing how to use it on the shoot and in Lightroom (WordPress won’t allow the video to embed, or I’d simply show it here!). The video is educational and well worth watching.
