SpyderCube - The Smarter Gray Card
Posted on Monday, March 28, 2011

Shooting in RAW mode gives you creative freedom, but processing a RAW file is often a long, trial-and-error operation. The SpyderCube accelerates RAW processing by providing references for white balance, exposure, black level and brightness right from the start. Simply take one reference shot with SpyderCube under your light conditions, adjust, save as preset and apply to the entire series.

The SpyderCube (DC SC200) replaces the older model (DC SC100) and comes with new packaging and includes a pouch and carrying lanyard to conveniently carry the SpyderCube around your neck.

SpyderCube is easy to use and compatible with all RAW converter software. It is essential for RAW processing but can also be used when processing images in a JPG workflow.
Small and handy, it fits in any photo bag and is ideal for location shooting (outdoor or indoor) and studios.

Provides all relevant light information for the RAW adjustments:

  • Chrome Ball to measure catch light to analyze overexposed areas.
  • White Faces to define highlights in relation to catch light.
  • Spectrally neutral 18% Grey Faces to measure color temperature and mid-tones in all lighting conditions.
  • Black Trap to define absolute black.
  • Black Face to define shadows in relation to black trap.
