ChromaPure Professional and Colorimetry Research CR-100 Colorimeter

There are two color analyzers that professionals and dedicated enthusiasts generally seek: a reference spectroradiometer for the last word in colorimetric accuracy and a professional quality colorimeter. Unfortunately, such devices are not cheap. The Photo Research and Minolta reference spectros start at about $15,000 and go up to near $30,000. The Klein K-10a, previously the only professional quality colorimeter on the market, retails at $7,000.

There is a new entry to the professional colorimeter market, the Colorimtry Research CR-100.

In our testing of the CR-100 we have found that it performs at least as well, and with respect at least to repeatability even better, than the Klein instrument. It does this at a significantly lower price point of $4990.

The CR-100 is accurate enough to be used as a standalone color analyzer for professional applications. For the most demanding applications it can be profiled against a true reference spectroradiometer. Either way, its speed, low-light sensitivity, and repeatability are world-class.

Summary


The CR-100 is the most affordable professional colorimeter available. Just mount either on a tripod, facing towards the source, connect to ChromaPure Professional, and then use as you would any other color analyzer.
