Where is the MAC Group label on Colormunki packaging?
« on: June 03, 2011, 11:16:26 AM »

Received my Colormunki and am processing my $50 rebate. I cannot find any reference to the Mac Group label they want you to cut off the packaging and send in.
Anyone know what the heck they are talking about?

"the maroon and white MAC Group label "

Apparently MAC stands for Mamiya America Corp.

It is not on my package I wonder what that means?
Is it a sticker or a logo actually printed on the box?

Dan, I had the same problem, couldn't find the label, so I called them.  A nice lady advised me that some of the ColorMunki packages did not have the label on them.  She advised me to send them the bar code instead and I received my rebate promptly.

Big mistake tipping us off, Dan!  Now we want a mini-review, nothing less will do.

Review,hmm to date the results have been less then satisfactory for the medias I have attempted to profile.
I purchased the Munki to demonstrate the profiling process in my workshops and to also profile some of the alternative medias we work with in the studio.
Mostly metal. I printed targets on aluminum and copper and could not get the Munki to read the first row.
The stuff is just too reflective for the Munki. Not sure if the i1 would have been any better.
The 2 Metallic papers I have profiled from Lexjet and Photochrome have given me less then stellar results.
The apparent reflectivity of these media are also more then the Munki can handle. Unlike with the metal materials the Munki can at least read the targets and produce a profile on metallics.
The oem profile from Lexjet is a very good profile compared to my attempt. I was hoping to improve on the factory profile but was unsuccesful.
Bottom line. The Munki is a pretty good low cost solution for profiling fine art & photo paper and excellent for monitor calibration.
What have I learned from all this. The oem profiles I have are all top notch. I see no way to improve on any of them at least for the effort I have to put in to this.
For under $400 it is a great tool for monitor calibration and demonstrating the profiling process.
