    Monitor profiling for shifting viewing condition

    I agree you got get to neutral and everybody's monitor needs to be calibrated well enough to display a full range of tone steps, but I question the need for using a hardware device on a LCD. Thanks.

    Monitor profiling for shifting viewing condition

    All of the monitors for clients, kids etc. that I mentioned in my above posts that I had calibrated (except my own) were all LCD's. It makes no difference whatsoever. They all need calibration. I have recently calibrated numerous Apple and LaCie lcd's at a magazine that I work for and the lab that I use also. All report dramatic improvements.
    Thanks,
    Kirk

    I am using a Graytag Mcbeth Eye One Display with the newer Match 3 software. It is one back from their current puck. It works fine. I'd bet you could pick one up used real cheap and then just download the current software. I'd be surprized if it was 100 bucks used.
    Thanks,
    Kirk
