hueyPro, Spider4 Elite, and ColorMunki Photo - Which?
Feb 19, 2012

I have been reading reviews and forum postings on monitor calibration and generating printer profiles, all over the Net. IF I understand what I have read, it seems like the Cliff's Notes (overly simplified, perhaps) version is this:

  • hueyPro @ $69 - Better than nothing...

  • Spider4 Elite @ $250 - Decent monitor calibration, but no printer profiles

  • ColorMunki Photo @ $450 - Does it all and very well, but expensive.

Does this just about summarize my options? Have I missed a competitor in the under-$500 arena?

Am I wrong in thinking that calibrating my monitor is only half the equation - that I also need to calibrate and profile my printer for optimal results?

Thanks for your help.

Steve
