I have just replaced my trusty old CRTs with a couple of wide gamut Eizos (Flexscan sx 2462 and CG243). My old calibrator does not work on these, and is probably dated anyway. But what should I buy?
I do fine art prints and some stock. I do this for my own pleasure, and sales are small and really just for adding a touch of "play pro" to the fun.
I have a HP Z3200ps which has a spectro and patch reader built in. I am quite happy with what it does.
My dealer suggests the ColorMunki.
But, prehaps this is an opportunity to get more "serious" (or is it just more "geeky")? On the X-rite site I see that an upgrade of the Eye-1 is due, and BH has it ready for preorder. However, I would like som pointers to what the Eye-1 would add to my setup compared to just adding the ColorMunki?
I understand that the Eye-1 is more accurate, but exactly how will this help me get better prints? I imagine it is more consistent, so that the profile for my screens will be more consisten, but "how much"? Will I really notice the difference or will say, differing ambient light be of greater concern?
Will the Eye-1 outperform my printer´s on board spectro and patch reader to the extent that I will start using the Eye-1?
