| p.1 #12 · Monitor calibration device. Which one? |
Maybe it's not an exact comparison but they are spyder3 and colromunki design.
I found the munki to be faster and more accurate with no adjusting whatsoever.
I had to fiddle with spyder3 and set my own brightness levels on the monitor and RGB curves via secret menu options, etc. Nothing like that was required with the munki.
I have 3 dell screens, one is a wide gamut, few laptops, all sRGB.
I also find when windows starts up, the munki software starts up faster and loads the profile quicker, if that means anything to you.
The design also lets me sample fabric swatches and profile the printer, but that's outside the scope of this comparison.
Why not, blob loblaw? Just curious. When I was looking at calibrators it seemed to me overall (and quite informally of course) that there were a lot more complaints and not quite as good reviews about the Colormunki vs Spyder. I also seem to recall reading that Spyder has more sensors or something but I could be wrong. I didn't graph out a technical overview or anything. That was just the feel I got after reading lots of reviews and threads from various forums.
My own personal experience is that I had a Colormunki smile and that in conjunction with using my camera's light meter to set luminance was about as good as using spyder4pro (which sets luminance based on the ambient light). I don't personally see a lot of difference in the final results.
Of course both made a drastic difference over an uncalibrated monitor. That's the key! Just calibrate!
