Color-Munki at B&H today for $120 minus $30 rebate
Do you use this yourself? I haven't printed pictures before, but I want to start - so I'm hoping you can provide some first hand experience regarding this tool. How useful it is, etc.
I have an old version. Works great. Maybe not exactly WYSIWYG prints but pretty close. Saves a bunch of wasted paper and ink.
Not so much even printing but viewing as well. I did some photos that looked good in Lightroom and sent them off to someone. On their monitor they were dark. Bought the colormunki and calibrated my monitors. Now we match
I don't trust my own eyes but it seems pretty good to me. Now I did have a software issue (I guess having to do with my specific monitor) so I did have to turn off some of the options. Like Robert, my monitor was waay too bright.
Wanted to provide a quick update. B&H Photo as usual was super quick in getting this shipped out to me. I used it to calibrate my MBPro 13" and after my first attempt, I felt I had just chucked $89 down the drain. The before and after were night and day - as in the before was actually good and the after had this magenta cast to the entire damn screen.
After quietly swearing for a while, I decided to redo the calibration and this time it (for whatever reason) did it flawlessly and similar to both your experiences, @robertk328 and @sammykhalifa, it darkened my screen a touch and I think it also changed the contrast settings a wee bit. I didn't get a chance to do this yesterday, but I want to take a look back at some of pictures see how they look now.
Thanks for the heads up @PacNWMike.
I hopped on this deal as well and hope to run the calibration on my two screens soon - I'll provide updates when possible...
You might want to check TFTCentral for profiles and recommended settings for your monitor. I used the recommended settings before I calibrated my monitor. The key was reducing brightness to about 30%.
I just checked the settings for my monitor and I had the brightness at a level about three times brighter than suggested. Whoops.
