WHY DO YOU NEED THE SpyderStudio?
Displays render the same image differently. Calibration tunes your display to a reference standard and brings colour consistency across desktop, laptop, multiple displays, projectors, iPad and iPhone.
RAW Calibration. In just one shot, the SpyderCube can customise white and contrast balance and other colour adjustments using your favourite RAW conversion software. So your images are captured accurately from the beginning of your workflow.
Prints often do not match display. Both display and printer calibration are essential to provide a base for superior print matching. This greatly reduces wasted paper and ink with your printed output.
Highlight and shadow details are inaccurate when not calibrated. Control of brightness, white point and tone response with calibration assure you that your display and prints will match.
Image colours are not true to life. After calibration, images can be viewed and edited with confidence.
Photographers, designers and imaging professionals can work confidently on properly colour-calibrated screen and printer devices and can assert greater control over the colour fidelity of their digital process. Images can be reliably assessed and adjusted on a properly calibrated display and printer, enabling true-to-life reproduction of image files.
HOW DOES SpyderStudio WORK?
This advanced colorimeter automates and simplifies display calibration. Install the software, attach the Spyder to the USB port and step through the wizard. The sensor measures a series of colours on your screen and creates a profile that brings your display to a reference state. At the end, you can compare how the images look before and after calibration.
Spyder4Elite features a patented, full-spectrum 7-colour sensor that can accurately characterise a variety of wide gamut and normal gamut displays. Spyer4Elite software lets you use the same sensor to calibrate your monitor, laptop computer, iPad, iPhone and projector. No other calibrator has this capability. The fourth-generation sensor uses double-shielded filters for longer life and better performance. On average, accuracy is improved by 26% compared to Spyder3.
The spectrocolorimeter in SpyderPrint gives you the ability to create profiles for your printers, inks and papers. Simply install the software, print your choice of targets with your printer and then use the SpyderGuide device to help step you through the easy process to calibrate and build a profile. The exclusive SpyderProof feature provides a series of images to help you evaluate detail and compare it with your images. Additional features have been designed into the software to make it easy for you to adjust profile settings to get the best possible printed output for your images.
This is a 3-dimensional white and contrast balancing tool. It provides a portable solution for photographers to capture an image with the proper data needed to manage all elements of proper lighting to begin the creative process. Shooting in RAW mode gives you creative freedom but processing a RAW file is often a long, trial and error operation. SpyderCube accelerates RAW processing in providing references to set the white balance, exposure, black level and brightness right from the start. Simply take one reference shot with SpyderCube under the same light condition, adjust, save as preset and apply to the entire series.
