Yes indeed, my i1Pro requires Dark Calibration after 10 minutes, and I think Ted has commented that 10 mins is pushing it - so I will have to investigate a profile that uses very few dark patches.If I recall correctly, the earlier (Rev.D??) i1 Pro has a very short period of time between dark readings?
Yes I hope so too. I've promised myself no more experiments until it arrives and with so much time on my hands at the moment I'm eager to play!
The current situation does mean a lot of people have more time than they know what to do with - but not me, I'm still working - not directly in Health Care, but medical device manufacture Engineering Support.
My previous screen was a Pioneer KRP-500M - fantastic device, had it just over ten years - until it was literally stolen off the wall during a break-in - only hope it gave them a hernia carrying it away, bastards.
Calibration was much simpler back then - even when I added a Lumagen Mini3D for fine tuning.
However, going from the 50" KRP to the 65" E9 has more than made up for the initial shock / anger / sorrow at losing the Pioneer. Glad they still have uses - providing the reference standard for setting perceptual white points.
Now just got to get LightSpace working its magic behind the scenes.
