Why your Colorchecker Passport costs so much?

Found this video on how they make the Colorchecker charts and Colorchecker Passport. It always looked to be glued together affair and it is, but I didn't know it is a bunch of 'aged' color painted chips and not one printed sheet.

Fwiw, x-rite has been going through some selling of the company lately with Pantone and Munsell. Might explain why you can no longer buy the "Sekonic Exposure Profile Target II" that's used to calibrate the Sekonic light-meters with their "Data Transfer Software." That was an expensive chart made by Munsell ($130-$170) but it's no more. You can use the Colorchecker Passport though, but maybe not as accurate and the generated curves aren't as nice, imho.

The Colorchecker Passport when used in conjunction with the X-Rite software can be used used to create camera color correction profiles that can be used by Lightroom.
