It is really frustrating after spending hours of your precious time editing a photo on your computer and when you print the photo it does not match the colors, and does not look the same as you saw in your computer or laptop! This problem can be easily be resolved using Datacolor Spyder 5.
One of the major causes of the problem is the way your computer monitor/screen is setup. The computer screen adjustments like brightness, color temperature plus the room lighting affects how you see the colors and brightness in your screen. So even if you adjust the colors, shadows and highlights to the way you like it on screen, it will not look the same as intended when printed or even shared in social media.
The screen has to be calibrated to the right brightness level, color temperature to name a few in relation to your room lighting. Calibrating can be done manual but is very technical and tedious process. This is where colorimeters such as the Spyder 5 comes in. You can calibrate your computer monitor easily in minutes!
Datacolor Spyder5 is the color accuracy solution designed by photographers for photographers, to help them see, share and print their images, just as they intended. The 3 versions of Spyder5 – EXPRESS, PRO and ELITE – reduce the hassle of figuring out why digital photographs look different on screen, and why the colors on screen don’t match photo prints. All Spyder5 product versions adjust, or calibrate, monitors to an industry color reference standard so colors are accurate and shadow and highlight details are preserved. With true screen color, photographers can more accurately edit their photos and achieve better print matching.
This next generation Spyder5 colorimeter is compact, portable and protected for use on all laptop and desktop monitors. Datacolor has redesigned Spyder’s patented 7-detector optical engine to deliver up to a 55% improvement in tonal response, resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients.
“A picture is more than a photograph – it contains a photographer’s emotional connection with the scene they’re shooting. It’s critical that a photographer’s computer monitor displays accurate color, so they can see, share and print their captured moments just as they intended them,” said Heath Barber, Imaging Market Manager, Datacolor.
“Spyder5 is an important tool for all photographers. Spyder5 calibrates a computer monitor to industry color reference standard so an image’s true color, with accurate shadow and highlight detail is displayed. Seeing accurate color makes photo editing easier and faster and provides better print matching so less ink and paper are wasted. Spyder5 saves photographers time and energy so they can spend more time doing what they love doing – taking photographs.”
