| p.1 #10 · UPDATED - Question about calibration and monitor brightness |
Both the Munki & Spyder prgms will request a brightness level from you or they will measure the ambient light level and suggest one--you can still set your own.
Your basic Smile will ask you set the 'brite' to a comfortable eye level and then run. When finished you can quickly rerun the prgm at higher or lower brite level of your choosing. I do this with my full blown Munki Photo anyway.
I don't know what you use to profile your printer-paper combos. if anything--profiling the monitor is a good start. However, I suggest the purchase of the ColorMunki Photo, this will give you total control from camera image to finished print which may not be critical to you.
If this box is sealed call X-rite and ask for trade towards the Munki. I assume that you have visited their site and watched the info video, do the same for the ColorMunki Photo. A rebate price is presently in offer ($350), sell the Smile and get a Munki!
If you do so, please visit the DpReview site and my and others posts illustrating completing a print profile on 1/2 letter sheet not 2 shots. I may have posted here also, not sure.
good luck irv weiner
