First, I'm an old Photoshop user with over 18 years of experience. For me accurate colors are not an option, I NEED accurate colors.

Second, I'm used to calibrating my displays by hand. I have set of calibration images I have used effectively across the years. Manual calibration has become difficult as the number of displays I use in a day has increased. One thing is to get decent colors and another to have multiple displays have the SAME colors.

Third, I have the Pantone Huey Pro and I was never totally happy with the results. I could always see some kind of color cast on the result so I ended having to tweak the resulting color profile by hand.

I got the ColorMunki because it seemed like an upgrade from the legendary X-Rite i1Display. I did find some reviews for the ColorMunki but they all used the more expensive model, the Xrite i1Display Pro for their reviews. Still, after careful study I determined that the added features of the i1Display Pro model were not relevant to my needs. The ColorMunki had all the features and parameters I was looking for.

The included software was easy to use. There was an update on the X-Rite site for the software but it looked like a small update.

I went through the menus, follow instructions. Calibration took like 5 minutes. It measures ambient light and has the option to compensate for changing lighting conditions. This is an option I don't care much for but is there is you want it. You need to leave the ColorMunki connected to your computer for this.

During calibration the ColorMunki actually took control of my monitor settings. Changing contrast, brightness, color balance and then adding a color profile to Windows.

I'm a Los Angeles based professional photographer working in entertainment related commercial photography. After disappointing results from the pantone huey pro I was debating between ColorMunki and Spyder express which are in similar price categories. The Spyder only allows you to profile one device per user license. With the ColorMunki I've profiled all the computers in my home and it works amazingly well. It takes control of most monitors brightness and contrast settings within the software so to know you're getting a very accurate profile. On devices like my flat screen TV it's on screen guide prompted me to raise and lower the contrast and brightness with the TV's remote which was super cool and produced incredible results. An added bonus is that it can also profile DLP or LCD Projectors. For the price I'm thrilled with the ColorMunki Display.

I bought this product soon after its release. I found it helpful and the colors were quite accurate although it could still use some improvements in accuracy. I photograph products professionally on a daily basis. Some of my clients are high end cosmetic companies and getting the colors right is critical.
I found the process of creating your camera profile and it being integrated into lightroom a real blessing!
If I reviewed this at the time I bought it I would have given it 5 stars but there were some colors that were too saturated. I was hoping with the update of the software, things would improve.
Unfortunately, after I recently updated the software to 1.0.2, the accuracy even deteriorated more significantly. Luckily I still kept the previous profiles I made with the previous version of the software so I could compare.
The problems I encountered with the updated version are as follows:
1. Some colors have become way too saturated and too dark. The reds and pinks are particularly nasty such that when the profile is applied the resulting colors are so unnatural. They even wash out detail due to the intense colors. And it was already too saturated to begin with.
2. The color profiles from the same image of the checker is different if made in lightroom and in the color checker passport software. The one in the color checker has some overall color cast evident.

I've tried out redoing the procedures over and over again. Tried different settings. Researched as much info and went through everything over and over again, yet I cannot come up with a profile that produces accurate results. So, I am relying on the earlier profiles I've made which were better yet still had problems.

Style Name: ColorCheckerPackage Type: Standard Packaging Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There are two parts to this system: there is the software you install and use on your computer, and there is the "hardware" the color checker you use when you're photographing and to which you reference the software.It is a system that speeds up your workflow, increases your accuracy and efficiency, and leaves you with prints you can be proud of.

Before I go on, let me clarify that I use this system with Photoshop ACR, not with Lightroom. Since the software does not install as a Plug-In to Photoshop (as it does with Lightroom), I have to use it as a "stand-alone" program. This isn't a hardship, but it is a distinction, and my review is based on this scenario only.

Another important fact is that for the purposes of creating profiles, this program requires that at least the profile-generating image be in .DNG so, whatever program you use to process your RAW captures has to be able to save as .DNG.

The process is simple: you shoot a series of photographs under a particular set of circumstances; you select one that is typical of the conditions present in the whole series; you save it as a .DNG; you open the "stand alone" Passport program; you open that representative image and tell it to create a profile based on it; you give the profile a descriptive name. The profile it creates will automatically appear in the camera profile drop-down menu in the Camera Calibration tab within ACR. You open the rest of the images in ACR and apply the profile to all of them as the first step in your RAW processing.

So far, I have successfully created two profiles for one of the cameras. It will be necessary, over time, to create a separate profile for each shooting situation for each camera.
