Spyder4Elite is a display color calibration solution designed not only for photographers, but also videographers and video editors who need the highest level of color control in the studio and flexibility in post-production. The Spyder4Elite can also provide color calibration for projectors.
Spyder4Elite features a unique, full-spectrum 7-color sensor that can accurately characterize a variety of wide gamut and normal displays. Spyder4Elite 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 and precision are improved by 26% and 19% respectively.
Automated Color & Brightness Calibration Spyder4Elite's simple, clear and automated process makes it straightforward to calibrate your displays to a reference condition. You can view and edit images with confidence on a display calibrated to show true-to-life colors and luminance adjusted for precise shadow/highlight detail.
Full-spectrum color sensor and single sensor calibrates all your displays Spyder4Elite's exclusive 7-color sensor improves upon colorimeters that use 3-channel RGB sensors. Each Spyder4Elite unit is individually tuned in the factory to accurately handle a variety of wide-gamut and normal gamut displays with ease. Spyder4Elite works with your laptop, multiple monitors, front projector, television (with paid software upgrade on website), iPad and even iPhone. It works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT, DLP and other display technologies. You can calibrate multiple displays connected to your computer. Spyder4Elite is unique in its ability to calibrate all your display devices to achieve greater consistency.
Improved accuracy and stability The fourth-generation Spyder4Elite has double-shielded color filters for an even closer match to CIE color standards and improved long term stability. Average accuracy increased by 26% and consistency between Spyder units has improved 19%.
Fast Re-calibration Assistant The "ReCAL" feature makes it quick and easy to recalibrate your display to compensate for changes that occur over time.
Adapts display to surrounding light The lighting around you will affect image contrast and appearance. An additional sensor on the Spyder4Elite detects changes to surrounding light and adapts the display luminance accordingly.
Spyder4Elite software options for greater control For greater control over color management, Spyder4Elite provides additional features including StudioMatch for visual fine-tuning of studio displays, built-in presets for video standards such as Cineon, NTSC and PAL, color analysis of your display quality, L-Star tone response curve for calibration to professional workflow targets, iterative grey balance algorithm for the most accurate greys, front projector calibration for color accurate presentations and unlimited choices for gamma, white point, white luminance and black luminance.
Pros: Very simple to use. Install software, plug in the 'spyder' hang over monitor, and run. It sets up a calibrated profile, and will load it up each time you start your computer. The first time I ran it, I was shocked at the difference it made on the colors and brightness of my monitor and my laptop. That's right...you can also calibrate your laptop.
Cons: It's not free. However, if you are a serious photographer, or even a photography enthusiast it is well worth it.
Other Thoughts: This is a very easy product to use and will greatly improve how your pictures are seen online, as well as after printing.
