Re: Question about color checker

i know that irl you can't have these perfect conditions, but i wonder why the colors of the  cards are not perfect ?  wouldn't it be easier to have  pure red, pure blue and so on for the calibration, and that way you will see how  the light or you gear changes the color temperature etc. I'm talking about the actual cards and print, and they clearly states their red is not 255/0/0 but something else. And the cyan is  far from cyan imo.

Again, i'm asking because  i presume there is a reason for picking such colors for "standart primary colors".
