Calibration of Dell U2713H and U2412M
Mar 17, 2013

Have just splashed out upgrade my and my wife's monitors.  My main activity is RAW photo processing in Lightroom and my wife is a digital photobook person (Blurb). For years I have been using an old Spyder 2 to calibrate our moniutors so wanted to find out what my options where with these new ones.

Firslty will I be doing more harm than good to use my Spyder 2 as understand the 2713 is factory calibrated? Not sure about the 2412M

Secondly if what we are doing is for a hobby and not for commercial sale can I justify spending the  oney on an Xrite device?  i'm assumnig such a device could be used ofr claibrating the 2412M or is that wrong?

Basically trying to mak the smallest investment, but get good colour on both monitors. i do a lot of underwater photography so good white balance is important.

Thanks for any advice

Mike
