Today we are teaming up with Datacolor to share their Black Friday deals. Check them out below.
Datacolor is running a super duper promotion and if you are into colors, you definitely want in. The package is $308 value and sells for only $139. The promotion runs through the end of the month and is available via special links (US, CA, EU).
Until the end of the month is longer than a usual Flash Sale and we love Datacolor for that, but I would still jump on this before stock ends or just so you don’t forget and find that it has expired. You would need to show that you own an older calibration unit (from any brand), but this should be a no brainer *cough, cough*. Here are all the details:
UPDATE: this giveaway has ended. Huge thanks for DataColor for the prize. Jump to the bottom and see if you won.
Enter to Win the Ultimate Photography Prize Package! We are giving away a Datacolor Spyder5CAPTURE PRO + Canon EOS 60D + 28f/1.8 lens. (Total Retail Value – $1,700)
When DataColor announced the Spyder5CAPTURE Pro package a few weeks ago, I had to get my hands on one. So we had a chat with DataColor and they sent one over for me to check out. The whole bundle includes four of DataColor’s popular calibration and profiling tools. There’s the SpyderLENSCAL, the SpyderCHECKR, SpyderCUBE and Spyder5ELITE.
My current workflow comprises a mix of X-Rite and Lastolite tools. A ColorChecker Passport, the i1 Display 2 and an Xpobalance. They’ve served me extremely well, so the Spyder5CAPTURE Pro suite has a lot to live up to. The DataColor setup does, however, offer some very distinct advantages over my current system, which we’ll get to throughout the course of the review.
So, let’s have a look at what’s in the box.
Datacolor was recently kind enough to send us a Spyder5 Elite to review prior to today’s official launch.
I spent the last couple weeks using the Spyder5 Elite to calibrate four of the screens that I use on a regular basis: both IPS and TN displays, my laptop and an HD TV.
Here are the results of our hands on Datacolor Spyder5 Elite review.
