I'm in the process of upgrading both the screen and to buy some kind of viewing light, which I haven't had before.
I'm qurious about if any of you have experience or opinions about the two products I'm interested in:
Just Color Communicator 2
Just Color Master 2 DILink to Justs site
It will be used for comparing images to the screen during editing as well as for customers to view printouts from ongoing photosessions (at least an A3 image must fit).
Since I work in an open studio environment the light varies to some extent during the day (daylight) even though my workstation is not exposed to direct light and well away from nearest window.
CC2 seems to be an interesting product, but is it worth approx 2x the price? And how much of a convenience is the automatic (via USB) dimming functionality in practice? It seems to mean that the CC2 dimms itself to the same level as the screen. For it to work, will I have to use Just's software (adJUST) for screen calibration/profiling or can I use software from Eizo/Nec/.... depending on what screen I buy? Maybe the required information is in the .ICC-file, then it should work regardless of what software did the calibration/profiling. If not, can adJUST do hardware calibration for Eizo/Nec/...-screens (not just profiling)?
Is the CC2:s cabinet a lot better than the open (and portable) solution CM2 represents?
Or should I wait for the LEDs to become finalized? More info
Many questions Any opinions/recommendations?
