Sorry to butt in here with something you've probably seen a million times, but we all have to start somewhere
Completely new to calibration, but I'm passionate about my movies and want the display to be as good as I can get it (within budgetary reason of course
). So I bought this
today and am currently tossing up between Calman Basic and ChromaPure Standard. I'm leaning towards ChromaPure but I just want to make sure that it's going to be suitable, both for a total beginner (I hear good things, so I assume it's noob friendly, but just triple checking), for the meter above and for my TV (currently a Samsung F9000, with a projector to follow in the next year or so).
I should say right now that I'm colourblind (not severely, but enough to muddle things up). There's an argument that I may not need calibration at all in that case, but this being an enthusiast board I assume you get it (I know it's currently wrong, I want it to be right
). So that being said, and with this really being an objective tool that's going to tell me if a colour is correct or not without my eyes factoring into the equation, am I still going to be OK to use the software etc properly?
Thanks for your time, appreciate the help!
EDIT: I'm going to be needing a calibration disc as well... I see there's a specific Chromapure one, but being in Australia it'd cost a bit to get one shipped over (not to mention the time). On CurtPalme for example, the shipping actually costs more than the disc itself
Any suggestions there?
