Thanks Chris! Ill look into the option of using more color patches, right now I think its sampling around 143? give or take...
Yes, I too had (have) one of those Apple Cinema matte LCD screens. Not the 30 but smaller. Early in it developed a permanent pink cast which was a problem in many of those monitors. That along with dead pixels relegated it to be only my 2nd monitor in 2012. I used it next to the Apple LED Cinema I use now as my 2nd monitor. Yes, the matte is better sometimes. For me it was not. Surprisingly fior me, even though I didnt really like the glossy display, I found it was more accurate as far as judging brightness and saturation goes. I was always just a bit too saturated with the matte Cinema. With the glossy display I was able to judge editing better and my Epson prints and online prints were more accurate than with the matte Cinema Display. Of course that surprised me but possibly my matte LCD Cinema was always a little defective despite Xrite calibration?
So for the time being its working out, especially with the i1Studio calibration. I too dont like the glossy displays always but the iMacPro screen seems less overpowering to me? I suppose an Ezio monitor might be better but with newer Mac OSs getting so persnickety I feel more comfortable with Apple displays for now. There is that LaCie display Aople got them to make but I dont want to sink $$$$ into another 4/5k monitor now until scaling and viewing options get more standard and easier to read and view across the board.
Thanks Chris! Good luck with your 30 Cinema. These were impressive monitors! Carol
