Improve Your Photography with this Monitor Calibrator #Giveaway from X-Rite

with 32 Comments
This week we are giving you the chance to win one of the best tools for professional photographers worth around $250.

If you’re not using some sort of monitor profiling system, chances are you aren’t really seeing your photos as you should.

You’ve invested in a good camera, went on a trip, took some great shots and you are about to process them on your computer. But you discover they look totally different than on the small LCD screen of your camera. Or maybe you’ve just received a red T-shirt that you’ve ordered online but the color doesn’t really match the photo that you see on the website.

This might be a good time to invest in color management gear so you can be confident that what you see on your computer screen is accurate.

The good news is that there are easy to use color measurement equipments. Recently I reviewed the ColorMunki Display from X-Rite which impressed me a lot. However, this time I had a look at their next level in professional equipments – the i1Display Pro.
The i1Display Pro comes with the hardware and software necessary for calibrating computer monitor, laptop displays and projectors, as well as compensating for ambient light.

The i1Display Pro has the industry’s most advanced colorimeter.

It is more sophisticated than the ColorMunki Display, offering power users advanced user-defined settings and in-depth quality assurance tools for precise color control, but I was also happy to find the predefined ‘basic’ settings that provide the perfect balance between speed and options to suit individual workflow and changing needs. 


If you don’t own some sort of color management solution, do yourself a favor and get yourself one. It really does make a huge difference in the final quality of your photos and ensures that others see them as beautiful as you do.

We are giving you the opportunity to win one X-Rite i1Display Pro worth $250. All you need to do is enter the giveaway via Rafflecopter and follow through as many of the optional entries as you want. Don’t forget that you can come back daily for more entries. The lucky winner will be announced via the email provided.

  1. Looks like a nifty piece of technology. Thanks for the great giveaway! 🙂

  2. I shoot with a Nikon D60. I would love to calibrate my monitor… I have a feeling I would notice a huge difference.

  3. I had an x-rite monitor calibrator from around 2001. Loved it and it was absolutely necessary with old CRT monitors. Got rid of it along with my 200 pound monitor back in 2006 when we hit the road. I'd love to have a waaay updated version which looks to be a fraction of the size of the old dongle

      The best camera is the one that you have with you. So even the one in the HTC is better than nothing.

    Excellent timing on this giveaway. My old calibration device won't work on my new laptop 🙂

      The i1Display Pro should be fine for your new laptop.

      I hope so. My old one was giving it a nasty orange hue 🙂

    I've been shopping for something to calibrate my monitors – making your timing ideal! I really can't believe I've gone this long without getting something, but the last time I looked (quite a number of years ago) none of the options were very good. Sounds like I have several good options now! Thanks for the posts.

      Of course it takes more than a great camera. And Andi is a talented photographer, there's no doubt about that. But a good camera can't hurt anyone 😉
