Pantone has released the CAPSURE, a device which allows any surface or material to be sampled, then matched to a pantone for later use. This means a studio photographer can have a reference point for a particular shade of clothing when editing a shot, or an interesting texture replicated as a background.
The CAPSURE comes pre-loaded with over 8,000 colours and complete with a software package to process the information. The CAPSURE is available now for £499. More information is at www.pantone.com
