I have ColorChecker since 2015 for free cause I got Sekonic light meter. I didn't know until X-rite released their software for Capture One Pro that all ColorChecker products need to be replaced every 2 years for constant quality.

For me, I've been using the same ColorChecker for 4 years and Im not able to make a proper ICC profile cause I get different and weird colors from ICC profile. For White Balance purpose, I have no issues but other ColorCheckers that I tried had issues even with white and grey parts.

But I wanted to ask if anyone buy X-rite ColorChecker products every 2 years or not?

I have the ColorChecker for 3 years now and I find the result can be different. There are some small marks on a few colours which could be impact it.

I noticed the ColorChecker Passport Photo 2 was released this months (and comes with a 18% grey card), perhaps it is time to replace mine.
