    Default Screen Calibrators

    Hmmm my photography tutor said- I should calibrate my screen- truth is I know I should, but have been putting it off- anyone got any advice on the following- "spyder" vs "hughie" vs "color munki"
    and- can one be hired? he he who wants to hire me one?
    may be short term fix- until my money tree grows more leaves........

    How is that supposed to work, do you play the disc & then make adjustments according to your eye?? May as well just download & use the adobe gama component part of photo-shop.

    Do you have any of your stuff printed Jack? If so, how did they come out?

    Yeah, just according to my eyes. And fair cop about the Adobe download.

    Only ever had one printed and that's a BW affair that came out sweet as, it's now part of the NZFM Auckland Exhibition at kinder House if you would like to check it out and is for sale at a messily $300 should you feel flush

    Well, your under valuing yourself again Jack! With the proceeds, you could procure a screen calibrator.

    Just to clarify, what is NZFM Auckland Exhibition and where is Kinder House??

I just bought a LG Lotus it has all of the same features, except the touch screen.
