I've recently bought and finished watching the Camera to Print tutorial, and learned alot watching it.
Biggest lessons is the need for calibration and softproofing, so when looking for calibration gear, I'm a little confused.
Calibration gear costs from ~$150 to $5000... For amateur / hobby based use, and not least on a fairly tight budget, what parts do you recommend?
My equipment is:
Dell 3007WFP and a HP 9180
"Datacolor Spyder 3 Studio Print & Monitor" is a kit for both printer and monitor calibration for ~$900 (4590 NOK in Norway).
Is this the cheapest alternative out there?
While I see the usefulness of the calibration, for my use it doesn't seem cost effective... (?)
