Ok, I'm ready to dive in and make some SM changes to tweak my 65S1. But being the perfectionist that I am, and knowing that while using someone else's settings will get me close, they won't get me right on the money, I think I want to give the DIY calibration method a try. I have read of several here that have done that and want to ask the best way to go about this.
I currently have Spyder 3 Pro that I use for my Macs but that is a fairly automated process as the software is run on the computer in question, sensor attached to the screen and then a display profile is created. Not much for a human to do. Doing the Panny will be a bit different.
Some questions I am hoping someone can help with:
2) can I use the Spyder 3 sensor I have? I read that the Spyder 2 wasn't that accurate but haven't read anything about the 3 (if there is a difference). Not buying one would be great, but not looking for fighting against the tool to get the job done.
3) HCFR vs CalMan? Does it matter? Obviously if I can use my Spyder and HCFR, my cost is basically nothing, just time. But if using HCFR and/or the Spyder will give inferior results, I'm up for spending a little money if necessary.
I would appreciate any info from anyone that has done this as it would save me heading down some ugly paths.
And of course, I'll post my results here.
