Does a chef blindly grab and toss spices into a meal? When retouching without a properly calibrated monitor, you are attempting to perfect your images blind. The Spyder5 is essential to my workflow. It ensures that the thousands of hours I spend in Photoshop are not wasted due to my monitor displaying the wrong information. It has the versatility to calibrate all my viewing devices (Studio TV, etc) and also makes sure that the vivid color I achieve through retouching in a calibrated environment is displayed brilliantly. This innovative device is slick in design, incredibly easy to use, and very fast. Simply press a few buttons, grab a coffee, and it’s done. An essential tool for all image creators.
