Video Colour Target
Specifically designed for today’s video production workflow, the Video Colour target includes four rows of colour chips designed for video capture and editing, giving you a powerful chart to speed up colour grading.
Chromatic Colours: six chips specifically designed to align with the colour 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 black and white patches, including a high gloss black to capture the full range of your video camera
Enhanced for achieving ideal camera exposure for video production. The Grayscale target includes 3 rows of white, 40IRE gray, and high gloss black colour chips.
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 colours 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 mixed 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.
With this colour chart, you’ll be able to:
- Eliminate colour casts
- Improve the colour preview on your camera’s display so your histograms are more reliable
- Make post production colour correction and editing faster and easier by eliminating the need to neutralize each frame individually
“Why can’t I use just any white object for white balancing?”
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 colour casts, and a lack of consistency between lighting conditions, making colour corrections extremely time consuming.
This handy card will always be at your fingertips to facilitate centre and edge focusing.
ColorChecker Passport Video was designed for absolute convenience and portability, so that you can take it with you to every shoot. The travel-sized case is made of a rugged plastic material that houses and protects the four targets from the elements and extends their lifespan.
The self-standing Passport case adjusts to multiple positions, allowing you the flexibility to place the targets exactly where you need them. Plus, the included lanyard ensures your Passport is close at hand during every photo shoot.
