View Full Version : Monitor calibration tool

12-17-2012, 04:24 PM
Hi everybody,

I know calibration has been discussed, but I'm a little fuzzy as to which tool I should be using to calibrate.

I currently am using a Asus VW246 and have only "calibrated" with Apple's calibration via the display preferences.

Should I buy or borrow a calibration tool? Which one?

Do I need a better monitor? Is one of the CatLeap derivatives a decent option?

I have an i1 Display Pro. It seems to be one of the best cheap ones but mine "calibrates" a red colour cast. So better buy where you can send it back.

I had a Datacolor Spyder first, but didn't cut it.
Now I have a Colormunki - works way better for me.

I have a datacolor spyder3 pro and I'm fairly happy. Works ok and it's cheap. If used with the X-Rite ColorChecker Passport it's a cheap time saving solution when it comes to grading/color correction in post.
I tend to use it as much as possible right next to the clapperboard before each scene.
It really helps.

I do appreciate the suggestions.
