Testimonial
“As a photographer who has been calibrating for a long time, I understand the value of color calibration. Spyderhd is my preferred solution for tonal linearity in computer display calibration, and beats my personal calibration technique for video reference display calibration.

There is nothing else like the Spydercube; the value of it is hard to over-emphasize for defining the light sources in a shot. I find the Spydercheckr to provide all the camera color correction I need, for both photo and video.”

-Lee Varis, Renowned Hollywood Photographer
