Monitor calibration VS Macbook Pro scren

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I am planing to order a monitor calibrator (Spyder 4). However, I've got a question about monitor calibration and monitor's brightness as well.

 

For example, the colors on my Macbook Pro is more vibrant when the brightness is set at the highest. There is also an ambient sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the screen depending on the ambient light of your workplace. Wouldn't this make the monitor calibration useless since the brightness is dynamically changed from time to time? How do you guys do in this kind of situation?

 

Cheers,

You should be able to turn off the your MacBook Pro's dynamic screen brightness. (sysPrefs/Displays)

 

Most monitor calibrators will calibrate screen brightness when set to advanced mode.

(note: high screen brightness will amp the colors way up. But, the colors get pretty whacked.)

 

If you're serious about color, consider using an non-Apple external monitor connected via DisplayPort (I've used the Dell 2408wfp, U2410, and currently U3011). In advanced mode, you can calibrate RGB and contrast before the color calibration occurs. That makes the monitor's color profile as good as you can get it.

 

Take Care,

ChrisS

For about $25. you can get the Spears & Munsil High Definition Benchmark DVD which is an excellent product that will help you properly calibrate your monitor whether it is an external monitor for your editing bay, computer or home theater. It can also be gotten on Amazon.
