Chomapure does look lika a good software. The price helps too. Haha.
I didn't know there was a free software available? Can you link me the thread?
Well that depends on how well you as an individual can pick it up, I am still learning things
But don't let that put you off, I was sceptical at first but now absolutely love this science, especially when you see "in the flesh" your own work!
I would look at the HCFR thread and have a good read through, all you need is a good sensor and laptop, software and disks a freely available, the when you are confident enough move on to the premium softwares!
HCFR was developed some years ago (originated from a French forum like AVS) but stopped being updated, however a few AVS member have recently taken it back up to improve it and it's support for newer meters, which is great news.
Here is the link to the new thread....
I would also look at the excellent tutorial which will encourage and start you off, without being too complex, here...
As a beginner I would recommend starting with just the basic bri/Con and grayscale range calibration at first and when you get used to fine tuning that, move on to the Gamut (CMS) and so on, don't run before walking.
When you want to do the CMS, Tom Huffman has posted a great tutorial for this.
Of course any questions please do ask
