The Royal Photographic Society has announced Datacolor, a global leader in colour management solutions, as their digital colour management partner. Datacolor is best known for its Spyder calibration products and is widely respected amongst photographers. 

“We are honoured to partner with one of photography’s most well-respected and historical institutions”, commented David Carter, Datacolor’s UK Business Development Manager. “Datacolor share the RPS’s aims; to help everyone realise their potential as a photographer, and promote the art and science of photography, which colour management perfectly combines”.

The Society's Chief Executive Dr Michael Pritchard commented: "Datacolor's colour management tools are widely respected amongst professional and amateur photographers and I am delighted that Datacolor has chosen to support The Society"

Datacolor offers a range of solutions including: 

Camera Calibration

  • The Datacolor SpyderCHECKR and SpyderCHECKER24 help photographers control their colour from capture
  • The Datacolor SpyderLENSCAL offers a fast and reliable method of measuring focus performance on your camera and lens combinations
  • The Datacolor SpyderCUBE sets white balance, exposure, black level and brightness right from the first capture. The SpyderCUBE is the best and most precise tool available to optimize and automate your RAW converting process in a RAW converter such as Lightroom.

Monitor Calibration

If you’ve been disappointed when you view your images on another monitor or received your prints from the lab, chances are your monitor is not accurately calibrated. The Spyder5 monitor calibration range, made up of the Spyder5EXPRESS, the Spyder5PRO and the Spyder5ELITE, offer straightforward solutions to photographers of all abilities and needs.

Photographers can now upgrade their Spyder5 software to Spyder5PRO+ or Spyder5ELITE+ for even more control and a more sophisticated calibration solution. The Spyder5+ solution’s new intuitive and innovative features are designed to simplify your workflow.

Print Calibration

Datacolor SpyderPRINT is a full-featured solution that provides photographers the tools to create a custom ICC profile at home for any combination of printer, ink and media, simply and quickly.

Datacolor Spyder5STUDIO is the ultimate colour calibration solution. The Spyder5STUDIO contains the SpyderCUBE, the Sypder5ELITE, and the SypderPRINT, allowing photographers to control their colour from shoot, to edit, to print.
