Replacing my Pantone Huey Pro
« on: January 28, 2013, 12:49:07 pm »

I have observed that my Huey Pro introduces a greenish color cast in my LCD monitor when I calibrate it, so that the images look better on the display if I use the uncorrected profile!  Searching in the web it seems that this monitor calibrator is known for such a feature (some people say that they see a magenta  color cast...). Therefore, I would like to get a new calibration system. Something that seems in a reasonable price are the  Datacolor Spyder4Pro Display Calibration System  and the X-Rite ColorMunki Display. In the Camera to Print videos I saw Jeff and Michael installing the latter, but I would like to hear about the experience of those who have used one or both of them, before placing my order in B&H.

Thanks in advance for the comments.

Fixing the green to magenta axis involves having software that allows one to control that part of color space. IOW, getting a software product that doesn't provide full control over both blue/yellow AND magenta/green when white balancing may produce the same problems. Don't think ColorMunki Display cuts it in that respect. Same hardware being driven by the more expensive option (Display Pro) does.

On top of that, the huey wan't so hot.
