    Thumbs up LCD colour calibration

    2 parts to this thread:

    1) Do you find the need to calibrate colour on your LCD?

    2) Which are you using and why?
    a) DataColor Spyder 3 Elite
    b) ColorMunki Photo

    1) Yes, because I'm using a wide-gamut LCD and without proper mapping the colors are way over-saturated.
    2) Neither. I used a borrowed Spyder 2 PRO. (Well they say you should calibrate and profile every month - I don't know if anyone's ever going to see the difference.)

    1) Yes. I feel strange to do any post processing on a non-calibrated monitor.

    2) Eye-one display 2

    It is a basic need to calibrate your monitor (actually it's only a profiling but for the ease of understanding let's use both terms). How can you seriously start any editing if your monitor is not showing what the digital data represent? Most monitors are offered with settings good for work or gaming or movies. But this includes settings that are not helpful for picture editing (e.g. increased contrast, saturation, emphasizing on blue/black).
    I use Spyder2 Pro, got it 2nd hand. Works nice. I noticed a slight blue shift compared to my previous profiling 2 months ago. You can also check Digital Darkroom here, lots of information also covering the profiling topic.
