DigiCamReview.co.ukSpyder 2 Plus review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his ColorVision Spyder 2 Plus review. The Spyder2 Plus software is created for the hobbyist, serious amateur or the desktop designer. The monitor is the most important device within your digital work flow to judge your images whether it is needed to edit them or not. Of course the way colors are displayed on your screen says everything about a successful end result or not. ColorVision Spyder2 Plus software includes Spyder2, a highly accurate, color sensor that delivers precise color correction for CRT, LCD and laptop displays, Spyder2 color monitor calibration software and ProfilerPLUS software, which creates color-printing profiles.
Spyder 2 Plus review at DigiCamReviewSpyder2 Plus - Sensor and Screen
According to Joshua Waller: "After arranging the sensor, as long as you manage to balance the Spyder2 successfully you shouldn't need to hold it in place - in the picture below I was simply holding it in place to show the relative size of the sensor. When used with a CRT, you can use the built in suction cups to attache the sensor to the screen, but with a flatscreen TFT you can't use the suction cups. Quick Tip: With TFT/LCD screens, tilting the screen backwards slightly can help the sensor stay more flat to the screen."

Spyder 2 Plus calibration software - Measurements
Joshua continues: "Old 15" Toshiba Laptop TFT - There were no built in options to change brightness / contrast or colour. The difference between before and after was quite dramatic, making the image darker, less pink, and less blue. My only concern is that the screen has a fairly poor visibility angle, if you are too high, or too low the screen brightness and colour changes quite dramatically, so it's important that I remain at a certain viewpoint when using this screen."

ColorVision Spyder2 Plus - Calibration and Print
"Despite all this, I do think that the second print out is a more accurate representation of the original image(s), and has produced a more pleasing print of the photos. The original image appears to be overly pink, slightly light as noticable in the girl's face, and in the green grass in the lower images. The second print more accurately represents the images as they appear on a calibrated screen as well. With a better printer and further time spent calibrating the printer I expect very good results should be achievable." You want to learn more about the ColorVision calibration software?
