Maybe you want this: B&H Photo Video
But be very sure that is what they are selling. Some places are notorious for not updating their catalogs.
Definitely get on the phone with them and tell them this is what you want and nothing later.
The Color Checker Passport color-calibration target and software produces DNG Camera Profiles.
Can your CS3 be updated to ACR 4.5 or newer or not? I believe that is the first ACR version that worked with the DNG Camera Profiles that the X-Rite software produces so if your ACR version is older than 4.5 there’s no point in trying to use the CCPP.
What camera model(s) do you use with PS-CS3?
Latest acr for CS3 is 4.6, so it should work.
And I'm asking to see if the camera(s) the OP has have been supported with more profiles since ACR 4.5 was released and ACR 4.6 added the first profiles.
Well, I'm not very knowledgeable on camera profiles, so it's better you advise him as soon as he lets you know what he has and whether he should get the X-rite.
My camera is an EOS Digital Rebel XTi. My version of Adobe Camera Raw is 188.8.131.52.
When I go to Photoshop and select About Plug-In, the DNG converter is not listed. When
I go to the Adobe Download page titled "Adobe Camera Raw & DNG Converter for MacIntosh",
there's an entry for "Adobe DNG Converter and Camera Raw 4.6 update". It looks like I
would need to install that update; is that correct? When I entered DNG in the help pages
for my CS3 10.0.1, there were no hits. Does that mean that my CS3 doesn't know how
to work with DNG files?
Thanks to all participants for their advice. Having purchased the Xrite MSCCPP ColorChecker Passport, I can say that
the short answer to my question (amended to saying my camera is an Canon XTi) is "yes".
Instructions for using a newer version of the CCP are given at
The same steps apply to the MSCCPP version.
In the reviews of the MSCCPP on Amazon, be sure to read Louie Aquinaldo's advice about not upgrading
from the included software version 1.0.1 to 1.0.2.
The X-Rite plugin is for Lightroom. If you want to use it in ACR, export the image of the ColorChecker as DNG and import into the stand alone X-Rite software. Then save the profile and it will be loaded into ACR the next time it is opened.
The Lr plugin allows you to export any raw file to the ColorChecker Passport, which will automatically create and save the profile for you. The profile will be loaded into Lr and ACR the next time they are opened.
