About this deal

Comparing accuracy and raw performance between multiple devices on a scientific way goes beyond my own means of measuring. I prefer to focus my evaluation on actual results. On that sense, I wouldn't mind trading my i1Display Pro for a SpyderX. It does everything I need.

Fixed some cosmetic issues (longer text wrapping and not being completely visible) in several places in the user interface (French, Italian, and Spanish). You won’t go seriously wrong with the incorrect setting, it’s just your profile may not be the very best.Every so often I need a better quality editing setup on my laptop, or need to set up tethered shooting, on location. The SpyderX Pro and Elite models both offer advanced color accuracy and calibration technology. However, the Elite model offers more advanced options and customization capabilities, including multi-device calibration, projector calibration, and unlimited gamma presets. It also offers a higher level of technical support. Soft proofing can be a useful tool, but I see too many using it in their print workflow as a crutch – or excuse not to take time really looking at prints and seeing them as a finished, final work, rather than a version of what’s on the screen.

I have a MacBook Pro, which does not have full size USB ports, only the smaller USB Type C ports. Is this compatible with Spyder X? Note too the 1/4″ tripod mount at the side of the colorimeter – this is for attaching to a tripod when using the Spyder X with a projector. Basic calibration Datacolor focused their product development on fixing the most important shortcomings of their previous Spyder5 colorimeter.It’s an oldish laptop – most laptop screens really are not what you’d choose for consistent photo editing. In the example here, the out of gamut areas are shown in grey, but you can change this highlight colour. I need to tell the software what sort of display I want to work with, since they tend to adjust different parameters.

Well, if the other screens are using custom color profiles - they will look different, but the content will look consistently different on their screen compared to what they are used to seeing. There is nothing you can do as the creator about that, short of asking someone to remove the custom color profiles from their device, which is probably not going to happen.The SpyderX colorimeter is available in two versions: Pro and Elite. Both use the same hardware and vary only in software capabilities. On a single computer this looks for the dimmest monitor and adjusts other displays to match it. If you’re trying to match multiple computers, then a datafile is produced that can be moved form computer to computer to enable balancing.
