Well, the i1Pro is still used by many Professionals today (as their only meter) and there are those that have access to reference devices to check the i1Pro.. majority of the reports I have seen show the i1Pro tracking well (admittedly, a very few are not in some areas). Michael posted he has compared his ColorMunki Spectro to his Jeti 1211..
If you are paying the same price for a ColorMunki / OEM i1D3 combo as a C6 (or even less potentially for a used
i1Pro Rev D / OEM i1D3), the answer is very clear to me!EDIT:
You may have gone through these links. If not, you may want to take the time to read all the posts and info.
Why a Spectro, see why here:
And Read this Thread:
I do want to mention something stated in the Dry Creek Photo link in regards to the i1Pro Spectro
Achieving better results from the Eye-One Pro is also possible through software. The open-source ArgyllCMS increases measurement integration and averaging time when reading darker values. This approach improves the accuracy of Eye-One Pro measurements. Calibrations made with Argyll show reduced color shift problems in dark shadows than does any other package we have tested. Argyll is a mostly command line package, does not support DDC to optimize in-monitor adjustments, and has none of the user-friendly features of commercial packages. For those who like to get under the hood, the price is right and the performance good.
This requires abandoning the official X-Rite API.. it's not the first time I've seen reports in regards to this when putting the i1Pro using Argyll up against a reference Spectro.
My first choice is the i1Pro Rev D, even used - I don't care where you get it from.Edited by turbe - 3/21/13 at 5:28pm
