Why Upgrade to Spyder5
Up to 55% Improvement in Low Luminance Accuracy
The new Spyder5 colorimeter design allows improvements where you need it most – in accuracy. The Spyder5 patented optical design, which is based on the industry’s only 7 detector color engine, has been enhanced to provide improved tonal response at low luminance levels resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients while preserving the exceptional color accuracy on laptop and desktop monitors.
Multiple Monitor Support
Spyder5EXPRESS now supports calibration of all your connected monitors.
The “All New” SpyderProof
Spyder5PRO and Spyder5ELITE users now have the option to select their own photos to evaluate the calibration results in the SpyderProof screen. This gives you the ability to really see the difference a Spyder5 calibration makes by looking at your own photos on-screen.
|Spydere5ELITE users also have the ability to view the SpyderProof image in full screen. No matter what your monitor size is, you will really be able to see before and after calibration results clearly.|
Spyder5 now includes recommended settings for every input with on-screen explanations of technical terms, making it easier and faster to calibrate and recalibrate. Just place your mouse cursor over any software element and the Interactive Help will explain everything with simple wording. It was never easier to ensure reliable colors.
Re-designed Help for Easier Learning
Spyder5 help content has been completely re-written to provide clear guidance for running and interpreting all available monitor analysis as well as creation of customized calibration settings, thereby enabling you to take full advantage of the advanced features offered by Spyder5PRO and Spyder5ELITE.
Spyder5 Sensor’s Smaller Footprint
The Spyder5 colorimeter has been completely redesigned to support a wide range of monitor types and sizes – including curved screens. The smaller size also allows for easier portability and storage.
Spyder5 Sensor’s Redesigned Baffle
The Spyder5 colorimeter is improved to avoid influence from stray light as best as possible with its redesigned honey comb filter that is as narrow and deep as never before.
Spyder5 Sensor Lens Cap
All photographers use the camera’s lens cap to protect their camera lenses – the Spyder5 device is no different. The Spyder5 device now includes a multi-purpose lens cap that helps protect and keep the Spyder5 optics clean as well as acting as a monitor counter-weight to ensure the device lies flat against your monitor during calibration.
Integrated Tripod Mount
Projector calibration with Spyder5ELITE is now easier than ever. The new Spyder5 device now comes with a built-in tripod mount. No more worrying about additional spare parts to carry around when you need to calibrate your projector.
Encapsulated Optical Design
The Spyder5 colorimeter has been redesigned from the ground up as a single optical module. This makes the Spyder5 more resistant to physical and environmental stress – ensuring your Spyder5 device takes correct readings for every calibration.
Spyder’s Compatibility to all Current Display Resolutions
Spyder5’s color references (patches) are displayed in full screen size to ensure that all monitor sizes, including 4k/5k monitors can be calibrated. When new monitor technology emerges, such as 8k monitors, you can be confident that Spyder5 will do the job.
Spyder’s Customer Care Page
The all-new Spyder5 customer care page offers you everything you need to start the next level (and reliability) of your photo editing. Rich content such as videos, easy to follow Quick Start Guide and detailed User Guide ensures you have all resources needed to use your Spyder5 product to its fullest potential. The brief Getting Started video steps you through the installation and activation process to get you up and running quickly and easily. The customer care page also includes a calibration demonstration video that steps you through using your Spyder5 software to ensure you calibrate all of your monitors correctly.
Compact and Re-usable Packaging
Spyder5 packaging has been completely redesigned to be more portable, durable and re-usable.

What a delight it is to use and calibrate all of my displays with the new Spyder5! It took me just minutes to calibrate three monitors. All of photography should be this easy!
Best money you will ever spend!! It will pay for itself in no time from all the lost paper and ink when your monitor is not spot on. No I don't work for them!! I just love the thing and what it does. I get a print of exactly what is on my screen every time.
Amazing how far a monitor can drift in a months’ time. Run the Spyder and observe the "Before"- "After" calibration and you'll be sold.
