Datacolor Spyder 5EXPRESS
If you have someone in your family who loves digital photography, either with a digital camera or a smartphone, then they will probably have come across a problem that has been plaguing amateur photographers for as long as digital photography has been popular.
How do you make sure that the image on the computer screen and the image on paper print show the same colors as the real object that has been photographed? Computer monitors always display colors differently from real life and in fact, no two monitors will show the same hues anyway. This always means that both monitors and the printed medium very rarely show the correct true to life colors. This can cost the photographer a lot of time and money when they have to print, adjust, print again, adjust and so on. This is such a waste of printer ink and paper and the photographer can become so frustrated at the lack of calibration and compatibility between the different media.
This is where the Spyder 5EXPRESS from Datacolor comes into its own.
