Not sure what you're trying to get at here, but to clarify for the easily manipulated, the Xrite results (from the certification sheets) mean the following:On reflective targets:
1) It's an average 0.4dE between different instruments (aka repeatability between instruments.) 2) It's no more than 1.0 dE94 from the specified tolerances
Furthermore, at least on my x-rite certification sheet, there is *no* mention of illuminated
emissive targets (AKA the ones we actually use the meters upon here.) Although, I do recall that x-rite did specify illuminate
emissive accuracy at D50, 80 cd/m^2.
Note: D50 @ 80 cd/m^2 is *not* D65 @ 150 cd/m^2 where some have tested the beast.
So first let's make sure we're comparing apples to apples and not apples to oranges. Secondly, if you're going to imply something hinky is going on, you might want to make sure you're telling the whole story(s) and not just the part(s) that benefits your position (whatever that is.)
To me, it seem logical that the i1Pro would be more accurate on illuminate
emissive targets vs. reflective ...
PS: When I get the time, I will recheck my X-Rite certification sheet to make sure I haven't posted any inaccurate information above. (I'm working from memory at the moment.)
PPS: I find it curious that you "quoted" dry-creek-photo's "inter-instrument" results when the *really* damning results would appear to be the "absolute accuracy" table.
I apologize if this ruffles any feathers.
