The Datacolor SCKP100 SpyderChecker Pro/Cube Bundle is a valuable bundle containing a SpyderChecker and SpyderCube. The SpyderChecker allows photographers to color calibrate a camera, perform precision in-camera white balance and record known-color samples. The sturdy, eco-friendly design has 48 spectrally engineered color patches and calibration software that's easy to use.
SpyderCube is a RAW calibration tool that easily fits into a pocket and outperforms white balance and gray card solutions. The 3D cube is an ideal way to capture color temperature and light source data on-site for accurate RAW adjustments and more consistent color.
Used together, these two tools let you achieve consistent color from day to day and camera to camera and apply these results in your RAW workflow. This in turn can streamline post-production by affording predictable color in the beginning of the capturing process.

The Datacolor SCKP100 SpyderChecker Pro/Bundle is the best color management system I have used primarily because it is supported by useful software that is compatible with the most popular post-processing software (Lightroom, Photoshop, etc.). The Spyder Cube is most useful in difficult field conditions due to its small size and portability, but even the SpyderChecker is conveniently sized and portable. Both have good mounting receptacles for tripods and light stands that allows one to conveniently place them in the lighting conditions one wants for the compositions. With digital, there is no real extra expense for the sampling exposures. The sampling exposures can then be used during post to preset your color and even your exposure settings and save you plenty of time in determining your starting point. It is well worth the money.
