QPcard 203 is a pocket-sized reference chart used for camera color management. It requires a DSLR or compact camera that can shoot in RAW format. Using the QPcard 203, you will be able to achieve truthful color reproduction in essentially any lighting conditions.
The QPcard 203 works together with the free QPcalibration software (available in Microsoft Windows and Mac OS versions). The photographer is required to make a properly exposed picture that includes the QPcard 202 color chart. This picture is loaded into QPcalibration and the software generates an adjustment profile for particular camera/environment combination. The correction file is stored in the folder accessed by the Adobe Camera Raw (ACR) software, so that it can be loaded from there.
With the help of the QPcard 203, you will be able to achieve nearly identical color reproduction between different brands and models of cameras. This is of particular importance to multi-camera users such as professional wedding photographers who frequently rely on two or cameras to shoot the same event.
The QPcard 203 color chart is intended for use primarily on location and has relatively small size (90×130mm). If you require a larger version, check out the QPcard 202 Studio. The QPcard 203 has linear spectral reaction and can be used under different lighting conditions without causing metamerism. The pigment inks used are extremely fade-proof: according to the manufacturer, the stability of the color patches exceeds 6 years under normal conditions of storage and use.
