All digital cameras and computer monitors are imperfect in color reproduction. Setting a custom white balance is very good on many SLR cameras, but never perfect. If your camera is a point-and-shoot type, then this product is essential. For perfect color, this is the most cost effective and the simplest solution; works with all digital cameras and scanned film as well. The Qpcard and free Qp software can save you hours of color correction editing, and you get perfect color, guaranteed. Works with image files including TIFF & JPEG. QP output files are in AdobeRGB color space. QP card details: the colors on the QP card are mixed separately from special pigments and extremely fade resistant. Although the colors are very stable, we recommend storing the cards in the absence of all light and humidity for maximum longevity. The practical life of the cards when stored properly is about 6 years. Some of the colors are mixed to resemble the spectral response of colors in real life: Light skin (#18), Dark skin (#17), Sky blue (#25) and Forrest (#15). The seven neutral patches (#4 - 10) all have an almost straight spectral response; in practice, this means the QPcard 201 can be used in almost any light condition with almost any camera, without suffering from metamerism.
