A compact, portable, visual, telescopic colorimeter has been designed for use in studies of photographic color reproduction. Telescopic viewing permits measurement of the color and luminance of areas as small as ⅜ in. square. Alternative Maxwellian viewing is provided for measuring nonuniform samples or samples having a rough or grainy texture. The precision and accuracy of this instrument have been found to be highly satisfactory.
