Free Webinar Recording – Advanced Studio Display Calibration w/ Spyder4, for Photographers

Many photographers encounter issues in calibrating color and luminance of their displays for studio use causing them to spend countless hours editing images and wasting paper to produce accurate images.

In this webinar, you’ll learn advanced techniques for accurate calibration and consistent viewing in your studio and other workspaces. This includes matching several displays in a work area or in a workgroup/collaborative team. The results will be saved time and money, and images that look the way they did when you shot them.

This session hosted by Datacolor, C David Tobie and David Saffir as presenters.

  1. Hello David.
    First time viewing your blog. I got here via the Webinar which was forwarded to me by Datacolour.

    I found the Webinar interesting but probably nothing overly new to me.

    A couple of points that I would like clarified or a bit more information about.

    You didn’t really go into a great detail about the ambient light measurement/adjustment and how it varies between Sypder 3 & 4. Could you provide a little more information here.

    And secondly, you mentioned in passing about the newer multiple colour inkjet printers have gamuts being close to or exceeding aRGB. Could you indicate which printer/paper combinations fall into this category. To be honest, I haven’t found a great deal out there that get even close to aRGB. Some of my prints, esp. of some of reptiles that I have shot recently have really been impaired by the gamut of my current set-up (HP Z2100)

    • Mark – as far as I know (and I’ll need to ask engineers) the overall color accuracy of the Spyder4 is significantly
      improved over its predecessors. On the ambient light measurement side, not sure about that – it is, after all,
      measuring only environmental luminance.

      The Z2100 is an eight ink printer, and as such has inherent limitations as compared to its big brother, the Z3200. The Z3200
      can exceed Adobe98 in some gamut areas, particularly blues and greens and Adobe 98 can exceed the Z3200 in other gamut areas.
      I use an HP Dreamcolor display (exceeds Adobe 98), and my screen to print match is excellent. I would say the best color gamut
      is achieved on premium quality gloss or lustre papers. The Z3200 has 12 ink channels, including the GE cartridge.
