[filmscanners] RE: Monitor calibration offer, kind of OT



Well, in fact that was our joint purchase (me and the friend of mine).
We had a chance to get the appropriate software for free and then decided to
catch up on this opportunity and won the tool on Ebay.
But basically, this one is quite common among advanced amateurs and pros
alike who doesn't want to spent a fortune for higher caliber-graded things.
Just search the web for Monaco or visit their URL (sorry forgot the exact
address).
This is a matter of minutes to figure out one.

Alex Z

Alex,

Where did you get the Monaco tool? Locally or online?

Well, I indeed wasn't prepared to shell out 800-1000 US$ for high-end
calibrator like one offered me (of Gretag) opting for 300-400 US$ Monaco
tool.
Of course, I could expect the best results form Gretag (what you pay is what
you get), but the profile delivered by Monaco was really goof enough for my
point of view considering no real professional goals I'm after.
Frankly, I see my scans benefit from clear and true color reproduction
without any casts and whatsoever, and this is what I was after.
All the rest might be subject for academic discussions.

Regards,
Alex Z

The profiles that come with monitors are only good for one thing: they have
the correct primary colors in them. Other than that, they're useless,
because they have no way of knowing how you've set the brightness, contrast
or color temperature. At the very least, you should use Adobe Gamma or
Colorific, using the monitor profile as a starting point. They help you
adjust the black level, set the white point, and measure the gamma, which
when combined with the primary colors from the original profile produce an
okay final profile.

In my view, the weakest aspect of these poor-man's calibration tools is that
they don't set the black level very accurately. Having a real colorimeter
gets the low end of the scale much more accurate.
