Review: DataColor SpyderCube Calibration Tool

Getting the color right on digital images can be one of the most challenging hurdles in all of digital photography. Under certain conditions even the best, most expensive cameras struggle with auto white balance. That’s why it’s a good idea to set it yourself on the spot or get a good reference image to work from the moment you sit down in front of your computer. Datacolor has taken the gray card concept and improved it by light-years with the diminutive and inexpensive SpyderCube white balance tool. Set the Cube anywhere in your scene or have the subject hold it, fire off a frame, and you’re ready to get the color right. From now on, Color Me Badd will be regulated strictly to iTunes, not your pics.
