Default Re: Guide to: GREYSCALE CALIBRATION FOR DUMMIES

Hi Kal,

Reliable Colorimeters under $150 U.S.! Maybe reliable but far from accurate. I compare my Minolta CS200 to 2 and 3K colorimeters like Sencores new CP6000 and others all the time and they are nowhere near as accurate. the Spyder at $250 is so bad that my clients get angry when their picture is destroyed and they have pay to me to come in and fix it. The piece doesn't get anything right in its suggestions. There is no substitute for a true reference meter when it comes to accurate grayscale calibration.
