Datacolor has been producing colour management tools for as long as I can remember, I have been using Spyder Colorimeters for monitor profiling for several years now. In this review I will be taking a look at the Spyder Capture Pro suite. For the photographer the Datacolor Spyder Capture Pro kit appears to be an ideal solution for creating accurate colours in digital photography workflows, so let’s take a look at each item.
The Spyder Capture Pro suite includes:
- SpyderLenscal – a camera calibration tool for checking focus accuracy of a camera and lens combination.
- SpyderChecker – a colour reference chart for calibrating and creating camera profiles.
- SpyderCube – a quick way to set white balance on RAW files in post production.
- Spyder 4Elite – a colorimeter for calibrating and creating profiles of a monitor, TV, iPad, iPhone and projector.
- Screen cleaner, Software CDs and Quick Start guides
- A rugged aluminium carry case to keep all the above products safe.
