Datacolor Spyder5PRO Giveaway! ($189 Retail Value)

If you’re not color calibrating your equipment, you’re killing the images you work so hard to execute,” says Kishore Sawh in the following article, making a case about the importance of color calibrating your monitor.

No longer just in print anymore, our images will appear across many different mediums in this day and age – monitors, phones, tablets, etc. Therefore, it is extremely important that your imagery is viewed and printed as you intended it to look. If your monitor color isn’t accurate, you won’t see true-to-life colors, highlight and shadow details, not to mention correct skin tones. And if you’re looking at an image that isn’t true, how can you edit it properly, or get your screen to match your prints? You can’t. Spyder5 will solve all of that in minutes, and we are giving one away.

Datacolor Spyder5PRO Giveaway!!  ($189 Retail Value!)

Enter to win a SpyderPRO. Contest is open internationally to those who are 18 and older.

About Spyder5PRO

True colors – on screen and in print

Break free from the frustration of your prints not matching your on-screen image.  Spyder5PRO determines optimal monitor brightness so you can see the fine shadow details and highlights in your photos, ensuring your edited images match your prints.

Room Light Monitoring

Spyder5PRO’s  integrated room light sensor continually measures your room’s lighting conditions and alerts you if there’s been a change among three ambient light levels. Then you can choose to either modify your calibration settings or adjust your room lighting to assure optimal color accuracy.

Spyder5Pro-calibration-giveawayFast & Easy

Spyder5PRO software is extremely easy to use, with a simple step-by-step wizard that guides you through the initial 5-minute calibration process, for all of your desktop and laptop monitors.  Then perform a fast monthly recalibration in half the time to keep colors consistent.   

Tomorrow’s Technology

Next generation Spyder technology comes with a colorimeter that is compact, portable and protected. We’ve redesigned Spyder’s patented 7-detector optical engine to deliver up to a 55% improvement in low luminance accuracy, resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients. 

Personalized “Before and After” with SpyderProof ™

See the nuances that matter most with a “Before and After” evaluation of your calibration results using your own image, or a professional Datacolor composite image. SpyderProof gives you confidence that your monitors achieve precise color accuracy.


Display Analysis

It’s important to know the characteristics of your display when doing color-reliable work.  Get to know how your monitors perform with the Display Analysis feature, which allows you to compare the color, brightness, contrast, gamut, tone response and white point across all of your laptop and desktop monitors.
