Initial Impression on X-Rite ColorChecker Passportjcasasphotography.com Blog - Posted by JJ Casas November 6, 2009 "I personally will be going to like using this tool in my shoots as it gives me a sense of greater control of my images.

My X-Rite ColorChecker Passport Review, by Gavin Gough, Photographer "In practice, it’s simple to use and I love the fact that it slips easily into the side pocket of my camera bag.

X-Rite ColorChecker Passport - thewsreviews.blogspot.composted by Matthew Robertson November 7, 2009 "After one day, I can't imagine doing any colour-critical photography without using this target. It's more powerful than a grey card and not much more difficult to use. The only problem I can foresee is that I'll be littering my Calibration panel with various presets, but smart naming will help with that. My X-Rite ColorChecker Passport is about to become indispensable."

Real World Review – X-Rite ColorChecker Passport – This Goes Right in the Bag! - by photoinduced.com
“When we first saw a prototype, X-Rite listened to the reviewers suggestions and didn’t release this until it was perfect. Seems like they got it right. The case is tight, the click stop adjustment allows you to angle the charts to mimic the light falling on a subject, and the size is perfect.”

X-Rite ColorChecker Passport – by Uwe Steinmueller, Outback Photo
“As far as we can tell these profiles seem to work very well. The real strength is to be able to create scene specific profiles.

This way we can create a profile whenever we see the need for it.”
