hi all, im lookinf for a monitor callibrator for under £80 and wondering about any suggestions. Looked at a Pantone Huey and some Spyders but nothing caught my eye. And is there any real difference between a £300 one and a cheap and cheerful one? Thanks for any help. :)

Hi photo_fofo!

Monitorcalibrating is done by the Spyder3 Pro in my case and I´m satisfied with it. Of course, I don´t know the prices in Scotland for this spyder but I´ve payed ca. € 100 which should be in your range. The differences between those calibrationdevices (brands) are small, merely software. I don´t think they are really important.

The difference between a calibrated and a non-calibrated monitor can be huge by the way.

The only difference by those which costs more (ca. € 400) is the possibility to calibrate the printer as well. But if you don´t print your photo´s yourself or send them to a photolab you don´t need it anyway.

Hope this helps!

Kind regards,

ngc94227
