Hi Guys,

I currently own Colormunki Photo, got myself Panasonic 55ST50 and calibrated it with HCFR, obviosly the low end IRE10 doesn't look good. More over the 3D calibration due to low brightness is even worth..
So I'm thinking to get i1Display pro to get it sorted, I know lots of people suggesting i1Dsiplay Pro + i1Pro as reference but my question is - will I be able to correct i1Display pro with Colormunki photo.
If yes can you point me to any info on how to do this?


Thanks in advance,

I also have a Colormunki Photo and I use it together with a C6 profiled to it on Calman.

Apart from speed, there is really not much to choose at low end IRE's and if it looks wrong I would trust your own eyes rather than any meter at anything below 30 IRE.

Just an opinion.

So you suggest to stick to what I have - calibrated with HCFR I do like the result actually but thinking if i can improve it.
Did you test C6 vs CM in low light, C6 should be much faster but to what degree CM is off?

As I understand it the D3 meter is faster at low IRE's than the Spectro.
I got the ColorMunki to check out how far out my Colorimeter was on my Display then profiled my C6 with it.
As it happens, both were quite close to each other and I can use the C6 at low IRE's and it looks OK.
With CM it takes a lot longer to get a reading but it is about the same x,y,Y readings.

I was suggesting that if your low IRE's are obviously wrong in colour then forget the meters and use your eyes. to get correct whiteness because at very low light they are notoriously inaccurate.
I have an LCD so 10 IRE is quite high, a PJ will be much lower.

Your eyes are very good at noticing subtle differences.

They aren't good at recognizing absolute color though.

So if you know 100% white is D65 ( from measurement), then you're eyes can be a pretty good judge of weather other shades of gray are also D65.

Thanks Joel,
That makes sense.

Ensuring the high D65 is accurate was my reason to buy a Colormunki otherwise as you point out my 'eye' comparisons for very low IRE's will be similarly inaccurate.
