    • how do you calibrate your screens?
      Have a look at DisplayCAL, formerly known as dispcalGUI. It's Open Source monitor calibration software, extremely sophisticated, extremely thorough in its measuring, works with most color meters on the market (including devices that no longer have vendor driver support such as the Spyder3), runs on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux and provides the basis for a fully color-calibrated workflow for operating system and applications. It even supports calibration of external monitors connected to Decklink cards via Resolve. It's vastly superior to the software that comes bundled with color meters on the market.
    • how do you calibrate your screens?
      Looks fine. There seems to be some added yellow and greens to flatten the image a bit and open it up a little, which kinda looks nice, kinda of like a filmic wash. But I don't know how that scene looked in real life and how the weather was that day... and then there's the matter of taste and intent... how you want it to look and what you are trying to convey. If it's part of a look for example, you could actually emphasize the coldness a bit more. With some quick adjustments that would be something like this with a bit more pinkish skin and bluer blues: To get to the topic title... haven't seen anyone mention 'em, but personally I have the Colordata Spyder5 Elite. Just because I got a good deal on it during one of these Amazon sales weeks. Not sure if it's a poor choice compared to others. My new MSI Prestige PE60 laptop comes with a pre-calibrated and accurate panel with 'True Color' profiles which isn't bad, although I haven't made the switch from my ASUS just yet, because I still need to organize migrating to the newer system, which is always a bit of a pain managing backups and wanting to start fresh setting everything up from scratch.
    • Guess the Camera - Bonus Round
      There's a reason people try to emulate film look with their digital stills work. I loved shooting 645-format Kodak Portra.Those colors are incredible and the smooth highlights, dayum! Also it's really hard to edit a digital shot to authentically make it look like shot on b&w silver halide film, the grain works just so totally different than digital noise. A few years ago there was an impressive description of how Sebastião Salgado changed from analog medium format to a DSLR (Canon 1Ds III if I remember correctly when he shot Genesis), got the images developed in RAW, but then exposed to negative film and printed like before. Crazy (and crazy expensive).

    • Canon 5dm3, thoughts
      Thanks (dank je) Cinegain, you 'shoot' me in the right direction, let's see what the 6300 can bring to (my) table. It will be here in a few weeks I think? If I don't like it,  I can always go back to canon, can't I? (*-*)
