Advanced 3-slides IT-8 targets for creating individual ICC profiles of scanners for professional color management. LaserSoft Imaging has a very high quality IT8 target production. Large manufacturers use LaserSoft Imaging's targets for their worldwide production and are impressed by the high quality.
These IT8 calibration targets are three 35 mm slides in a standard slide frame (5 x 5 cm). The IT-8 targets are on Fuji film, making them ideal for creating ICC profiles for Fuji films. The Fuji IT8 targets are also better suited for Agfa films than a Kodak IT8 target, as Agfa films have similar properties to Fuji films. Requirement for the execution of the IT-8 calibration is a calibration software like SilverFast Ai.

As you can read in our review the extended targets don't have any advantages compared to the standard targets. That's why we recommend the standard target as a cheaper alternative.
Benefits of LaserSoft Imaging IT-8 targets
- Higher precision than other manufacturers because smaller units are produced and calibrated

Before you perform a colour calibration with an IT-8 target you should clean the target carefully in order to avoid fault measurements due to dust. For cleaning IT-8 targets we recommend an anti-static brush from Kinetronics. With an anti-static brush you can make a careful and professional cleaning and you remove static loads from the film material, and you avoid, respectively, that it charges up with static loads during the cleaning process.
