Re: E-M5 Mark III hands-on

Re: E-M5 III reviews

Strange how so many people spend ages keenly anticipating the new model then go to great lengths saying why they won't be buying it.

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

You are correct Ian about needing a separate print reader when using the Spyder device.
My preferred solution was to print off the Permajet supplied test pages, print and send to them for a custom...

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

It does replace the Spyder software, believe it works with the cheapest of the Spyder colorimeters.
I bought the 5 to replace my old 2 when I bought a new monitor.

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)

You also need to decide on what papers you will print on and use the correct profile for them.
Canon paper profiles are already installed, I use Permajet and had them create a personal profile.

Re: Calibrating monitor(s)
