SpyderSpyderPhotographers have enjoyed the benefit of autofocus for 25 years now, but many still struggle with its accuracy and repeatability. Auto-focus is a great convenience, especially in fast shooting situations. But typically the first step in reviewing files from a shoot is tossing all the images where the focus isn’t quite right. This can be motion blur or other issues, but one of the most frequent causes is auto-focus error. We tend to blame this on the camera choosing the wrong object, or the wrong point on the object as the focal point, but there is another possibility, one we hate to consider, given the price of the hi-end lenses we use: the auto-focus of our lens may simply be off. When you take a simple shot of a flat object perpendicular to the camera, and it still isn’t quite as sharp as it should be, you have to accept that this may be the cause.


SpyderShooting in RAW mode gives you creative freedom, but processing a RAW file is often a long, trial-and-error operation. Spydercube under the same light condition, adjust, save as a preset and apply to the entire series.

cube is made of ABS Cycoloy, a hybrid resin that is fade proof, extremely durable and shock resistant. In addition, colors are through-pigmented for durability, and are scientifically formulated to provide optimal color values, including an 18% grey, which defines a new standard for spectral neutrality to provide accurate color balance under any light source.

checkr – The smarter color reference and gray card

checkr. This precision tool allows photographers to color calibrate their cameras, perform precision in-camera white balance and record known-color samples. The only color reference system that supports Hasselblad’s Phocus software, SpyderEvery camera make, model, and individual chip records color in different ways. These camera sensors do not see the same as our eyes and the camera manufacturers manipulate the data so you get a realistic image. You need to provide a color reference for your camera to assure you get the correct profile.

checkr makes it easy for you to create this custom profile to assure you get correct color right from the start!
