X-Rite MSCCPP ColorChecker Passport: any Mac/Mavericks users with experience vs. gray card?
7 months ago

This has been recommended as an aid to white balance, and 90% of the reviews on Amazon are very positive, those that aren't seem to be from Mac users who discover they have to re-purchase the software each time they upgrade their OS.

I'm tired, being red-green color-blind, of struggling with white balance with images under poor and mixed light conditions. This appears potentially better than a gray card.

Specifically, is there any way to use this in the field with the A7/r to set the custom white balance (the grid with crosshairs/4-quadrant option)? Or is that a dream? Or are there better options?
