Spyder4ELITE’s simple, clear and automated process makes it straightforward to calibrate your displays to a reference condition. You can view and edit images with confidence on a display calibrated to show true-to-life colors and luminance adjusted for precise shadow/highlight detail. The patented 7-color sensor improves upon colorimeters that use 3-channel RGB sensors. Each unit is individually tuned in the factory to accurately handle a variety of wide-gamut and normal gamut displays with ease. Spyder4ELITE works with your laptop, multiple monitors, front projector, television (with paid software upgrade on Datacolor's website), iPad and even iPhone. It works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT, DLP and other display technologies. You can calibrate multiple displays connected to your computer. Spyder4ELITE is unique in its ability to calibrate all your display devices to achieve greater consistency. The fourth-generation Spyder4ELITE has double-shielded color filters for an even closer match to CIE color standards and improved long term stability. Accuracy is increased by an average of 26%. The “ReCAL” feature makes it quick and easy to recalibrate your display to compensate for changes that occur over time. The lighting around you will affect image contrast and appearance. An additional sensor on the Spyder4ELITE measures the brightness of the ambient light and adapts the monitor luminance to an appropriate level.
Studio Match enables visual fine-tuning of studio displays to match the way you see color. Built-in presets for video standards such as Cineon, NTSC and PAL. Color analysis of your display quality by plotting uniformity, color gamut, and change over time, tone response and allowing comparison with other displays. Calibrate to professional workflow targets with L-Star tone response curve. Unlimited choices for gamma, white point, white luminance and black luminance. Iterative grey balance algorithm for the most accurate greys. Front projector calibration for color accurate presentations.
The spectrocolorimeter gives you custom profiles in minutes with EZ targets for color and black and white. The device provides convenience in reading the printed targets to help you create profiles easily and accurately. Usability is improved with the step-by-step process. The program makes it easy to follow the calibration of the targets and help you build a profile. This function gives you a series of carefully selected images to evaluate detail with a photographer’s point of view. This feature is available for each unique printer profile that you create, providing you with a soft-proofing tool that is invaluable in managing your printed output. Advanced controls are included in the Color and Black & White Tinting curves in your Image Editor, which allows you to apply adjustments to the profile rather than to each individual image. The Extended Grays Target allows you to add precision gray and near gray data to profiles, enhancing the quality of tinted and b&w prints. Flexible target options and high patch profiling targets produce “gallery quality prints” in color or black and white. Easily select prebuilt or custom sets of advanced profile settings to produce profiles with specific combinations of highlight and shadow tint, detail and neutrality settings.
Spyder Cube provides all relevant light information for the RAW adjustments with these features:
- Chrome Ball to measure catchlight to analyze overexposed areas.White Faces to define highlights in relation to catchlight.
- Spectrally neutral 18% Grey Faces to measure color temperature and midtones in all lighting conditions.
- Black Trap to define absolute black.
- Black Face to define shadows in relation to black trap.
- Easy to use: Compatible with all RAW converter software.
- Essential for RAW processing: But can also be used when processing images in a JPG workflow.
- Compact design: Small and handy, it fits in any photo bag ideal for location shooting (outdoor or indoor) and studios
