X-Rite ColorChecker Classic

The ColorChecker Classic 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. Each of the 24 colors represents the actual color of natural objects and reflects light just like its real-world counterpart. Ideal for photographers and filmmakers.


The ColorChecker Classic target is an array of 24 scientifically prepared natural, chromatic, primary and grayscale colored squares in a wide range of colors. 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.

The ColorChecker Classic can be used for a variety of applications, including:

Digital Photography: Create camera profiles, check images, correct white balance and perform color correction.
Film Photography:  Check films, lights, filters and paper
Filmmaking: Use for color grading; check cameras and lights
Graphic Arts:  Check any printing or proofing process
Other industry applications
