Professionals have been using the i1Pro for a long time and they don't get paid more for their time taking the dark readings... many of these guys have both an I1Pro and Chroma 5 (which is never used). They are paid the same regardless if they use either.. they choose to take the dark readings...
oops... meant to type doesn't
I know DIYers like to calibrate, change setting(s), check calibration/make adjustment, change more settings, check calibration/make adjustments - oh now we don't like it at 32fL, lets try 36fL... start over.. damn wife turned on all the lights during the wb run, got to restart that.. hungry, need to take break.. thought of another setting to try, another picture mode etc etc etc.. tick tock - damn dark reading timer
a couple of days later, watched another move.. something doesn't look right.. time to: calibrate, change setting(s), check calibration/make adjustment, change more settings.............
the following week, read something from a forum, need to try that now.....
those dark readings can make things 'fun' - tick tock
EDIT: Oh guess what now, 3 weeks later, it's time to calibrate for 3D, your wife is eager to check it out... without an i1Pro, what meter <$1200 are you going to use?
