Sorry to go off topic here, but any recommendation for a reasonably cheap colour monitor calibrator?? Most people seem to like to use Colourvision spyder, but the price seem to be a bit steep. How does it really work?? Maybe after some understanding I might not find it too steep... I don't really need my photos to be 100% accurate, but at least close enough to get what you see on the monitor.
I have printed out some photos on my HP printer that appear much darker than what was shown on the monitor. Also I have ordered some photos thru an online photoshop that printed out my photos with a slight bluish tint that is not apparant when viewed from my monitor.
I think going big is the best way to view photos or play games. Thats why I intend to get a 19' or 21" CRT monitor (Currently using a crappy 17" HP monitor). Ever since I have pick up an interest in photography, I have beome more critical in the way I view photos especially mine. I would certainly love to show my photos in the best way possible. And recommendations for a big CRT monitor?? Being an occasional graphic intensive gamer also made me wish to have a huge monitor. If budget allows, I might even get a projector and link it with my computer. Imagine playing some flight simulator or car racing with a 50++" screen
Now I am really going more and more off topic. But would appreciate any advice.
