Sometimes the most frustrating thing about photography or graphic design, in general, is needing to find a specific color, but being unable to match it with just your computer. Even in real life, most of us run into an issue at some point with having to match a paint color and being unable to do so. But Nix’s line of color sensors makes all things color-related so much easier.
Depending on your needs, there are two different models you might want to try out: the Nix Mini and the Nix Pro. The Mini can scan any surface (whether it’s painted walls, cloth, or dye) and match its color to leading paint brands or RGB, HEX, CMYK, and LAB colors. It’s convenient because it’s portable, durable, and can sit comfortably on a keychain. The Nix Pro is a bit of a step up. It can match colors, but also blocks out ambient light for a more precise match. In addition to being able to scan color, it can also do color comparisons between multiple shades. You’ll get all the color libraries of the Mini plus sRGB, CIELAB, LCH, and LRV values.
For the meticulous photographer, camera operator, or graphic designer, Nix’s color sensors are a complete godsend. Best of all, they’re both on sale for major discounts right now. The $99 Nix Mini Color Sensor is currently on sale for 30% off, which means it’s only $69. The $349 Pro edition is reduced to $249 today, which is about 28% off.
