Datacolor has debuted a new colour reference tool that allows photographers to obtain consistent, accurate colour in their shots. Designed to work within a standard RAW processing workflow using tools such as Adobe's Photoshop Lightroom, Photoshop or Camera Raw, it helps you perform precision in-camera white balance, create custom camera calibration and record known colour references.

SpyderCheckr features 48 scientifically engineered colour patches in a wide range of spectrally neutral colours and user-friendly profiling software that enables photographers to achieve consistent, predictable colour control from capture to edit.

The high-consistency standardized colour patches and calibration software allow photographers to create custom camera profiles. Datacolor says that SpyderCheckr decreases post production time by eliminating trial and error colour adjustment.

Datacolor has also released the SpyderCheckrPro, which bundles the SpyderCheckr along with the Datacolor SpyderCube for capturing custom white balance, neutrality data from multiple light sources and correcting highlight and shadow details.

The SpyderCheckr costs £198 plus VAT, with the SpyderCheckr Pro bundles costing £120 plus VAT.
