Having used HCFR for close to 4 years I can say it is a very good program and the price is right.
But, HCFR lacks the professionally designed workflow, the builtin help, meter support and the report generators present in ChromaPure.
The author of ChromaPure has years of calibration experience and has distilled that experience in ChromaPure. The result is a guiding helping hand for the enthusiast novice.
The HCFR user is on his own in determining the workflow to use although there are threads here that will guide the beginner.
Not to bash CalMan, it is excellent software as well but IMO has a steeper learning curve for those wanting to use the advanced features.
My recommendation is to start with ChromaPure.
Then if the need for custom layout design and report customization becomes important one can always add CalMan.
I also would presume that these calibration software authors all use accurate colorscience conversion math as standardized by CIE, SMPTE and Poynton.http://www.poynton.com/http://www.poynton.com/notes/PU-PR-I...n-PU-PR-IS.pdf
When in doubt, consult an authority
