Lightbulb What SW do you use to calibrate your devices?

Hi,
I am trying to find a good software for display calibration, compatible with my old sensor if possible (spyder3). As Iím new at all this calibration/profiling stuff, preferably something simple to use. Also, when I know more, Iím planning to profile camera and printer.
Could someone please advise? What do you use?
Thanks!

Hello, Alice
You can try PressProof 3 - it's compatible with your sensor and you can choose a license for just a display, printer, camera or all together. I'm sure you won't experience difficulties with Pressproof - it's very user-friendly. Hope it helps.

I've used the Spyder for a great many years. Still functions fine every month on my XP.

I had troubles getting a good calibration with my Spyder3 when I got wide-gamut monitors.
I found DispCalGUI which does a great job and it's free. The only downside is the calibration (at least with the options I have selected) runs for 2 hours on each monitor - so I get it started before I go to bed or when I'm heading to work.

I switched to the Spider4Pro and works great. Always used the software I did get with the hardware. The 3Pro dit a very good job. Still use it for quick calibration of the monitors of my clients that I give a workshop Lightroom.

Thank you all for the responses. After careful consideration, reading etc. I decided to choose PressProof3 by qubyx. I liked the trial and their display license is worth every "penny" paid for it.
