which one is better?
Gretag Macbeth Eye One Display version 2
Pantone ColorVision Spyder 2 PRO Studio
can someone give me some pointers on what to look out for in these type of product? any other brands?
boss dunno about the rest...but i use the spyder and i am ok with it...
Not sure about other as well but I use the Gretag Macbeth Eye One Display version 2 and also have no complaints. Pretty straight forward and fast in calibration.
I guess most would own only one of them and have no experience with others.
colourplus is relatively low-cost calibration software among the 3. its good enuf for home-use. windoze only. i used this prior to my upgrade to eye one.Originally Posted by NMSS_2
eye one is a bit pricey. but very accurate colour calibration. gretag macbeth's colour charts are something like the industrial standards for testing. plus, the colour calibration 'chart' is updated quite regularly for users to download.
no experience with spyder.
there's one more low-cost calibrator on sale now - gretag macbeth's cirrus calibrator. its the one dat comes as a puchase-with-a-purchase in the current canon promotion. u can get it separately at the usual camera shops like CP. IMO, its more user-friendly than colourplus and more accurate, at least to my eye.

I am using the spyder 2 pro. The reason I got the spyder 2 pro is that it allows be to use it as a colorimter to calibrate my projector. One thing though, the spyder is a pretty fragile unit. Mine was faulty, I had to get it replaced at CP.
Anyone got best prices and where to get for these calibration products?

Thanks mate. now i know why instructions for this was so difficult to find! cos it is just right in front of me in the calibration program!Originally Posted by Castlesinthesky
i got so stressed up looking at the screen that i was knocked out for about four hours.
WHoa the color calibration is remarkable! it....... looked the same as my old color. one thing i might need to change is the monitor, brightness for it is getting "not as bright".
