they should have included DATACOLOR DC SCK100 SPYDERCHECKR which is far superiror in terms of accuracy to X-Rite's Color Checker Passport. I first bought the Color Checker Passport but noticed that certain colors, specially the reddish tones were oversaturated. I did several tests and the results were the same. Worried that there might have been something wrong with the color checker card, I used 2 different color checkers by x-rite and the results were the same. Since I shoot a lot of products for some cosmetics companies, getting accurate colors is essential. I ended up trying Datacolor's SpyderCheckr and the color rendition was clearly more accurate. I even did a side by side test. I took photos of a pink sponge. Using x-Rite's color checker, the pink was so saturated that it blew out the details in the sponge. Using Datacolor's Spyderchecker, the image was very accurate.
Added to this, X-Rite's customer service never replied to my online queries regarding this problem
