Hi, I'm similar to Andrew, I have prescrip glasses and doc specified no blue-light filter at my request (their understandable default recommendation) when I mentioned concern about colour accuracy.

I have both a "computer" set and a "reading" set, the main difference being their focal distance (working distance "WD"). It took some trail and error to get the WD dialled in for me -- working with large monitors wide-aspect (sometimes multiple) is a very different visual task than a regular small-ish desktop monitor or laptop screen. I gave them my actual viewing distance from eye to centre screen for my setup and then we evaluated different focal distances for the lenses. (I forget at the moment where I ended up, around 50 cm WD I think.)

Also they recommended multifocal lenses so that I could focus on screen, reading items, and even distance with one pair. It makes sense but it simply did not work out for me. The usable zone for the screen was very small, pretty much dead ahead only, and the sides of the lenses were completely unusable. So with large screens it required changing from continual eye movements to look around the screen real estate, to complete *head* movements. So that ended quickly lol. It's single-focal lenses only for me. But your mileage may vary. I'd still say try them if recommended, just be prepared they may not work out.

Edit: Oh PS, I also have a cheap drugstore pair I use for general use. My prescrip glasses are really dialled in for sharp focus but have no distance vision (very shallow depth of field), whereas the simple drugstore readers give me reasonable distance vision for general use. I use them for things like printer maintenance work, etc.

Hopefully not too off topic, but: the eyes are getting older, and find myself craning neck forward to check details on my 4k NEC Spectraview. Time for some gentle (+1, +1.25) readers for daily work.

Anyone got a recommendation?

Amazon is full of 'reading glasses' boasting blue-light cutting lenses, so they have a slight yellow tint. Worries me that's not so good for color critical work?

I'm thinking bigger lenses/ frames, not some narrow professor type nose-balancers!

Most pharmacies have a display of reading glasses that you can try on.

My eye doctor uses his prescription to tailor make a set of computer glasses precisely for the task without any tint. That works.

You're going to control where each patch is measured (once, multiple times) for any/all patch sets via software how?

I'm looking at buying an i1 Pro 3 Plus for profile creation (seems like the best price/performance I could find).

But if i want to automate it, I noticed the price of the i1IO is kind of crazy high for what amounts to an xy stage that you can mount a spectro on.
Is there something I'm missing that justifies the price?

Any reason I can't just DIY it with an off the shelf xy stage that I'll mount the spectro to, and a bit of software to automate the measurements? (apart from the time investment)

Yes, the eyes have it!

The wing tips were clipped in the original image, sadly. I'm making a virtue of necessity by cropping further. I'd like to tighten it even more but I think the tail would get too close to the edge.

Beautiful subject. I"m a colour fan and I like the rendition of the green.

I think the background darkening might be a bit too much. My guess is with it brighter the tree gets lost so there is a trade off there for sure.

Oh wow. Super.

Normally clipping the wings would be an issue. This close up works - mainly because the bird is looking right at you. If you had room to do a version without the clipping it might be better but if one wing is clipped then cropping like this 100% the way to go.
