I have three monitors setup on a 3 LUT video card. There’s two Eizo CG210s and one Cintiq 21UX.
I’m using Colornavigator & i1 Pro to calibrate the Eizos. Colornavigator calibrates them with the following settings: 6500K, L gamma, 120 cd/m2.
I’m using i1 Pro, i1 Match 3.2 and a demo of the latest version of Coloreyes to calibrate the Cintiq. I use the following settings: 6500K, 2.2 gamma, 120 cd/m2. The profiles created by i1 Match and Coloreyes are identical. (Also, I don’t use L gamma in coloreyes, since it tends to make the mid value range a shade too light.)
- Is there a way to edit the Cintiq profile to more closely match the Eizo screen? The Cintiq color curve tends to go a tad lighter in the dark area. I have access to the ProfileMaker 5 suite, but have used it very little.
btw - I do a final comparison of the colors on all three screens by doing the following:
- Place raw, uncolormanaged, test chart on all three monitors in Photoshop CS5
- Screen capture all monitors, then paste the image into a raw document
- Place all charts on top of one another and see where the discrepancies lie
- I also place the initial raw color chart into the file with the screen captured charts, so that I can compare the screens with the initial chart and the raw RGB numbers
- When I place the charts on top of one another the two Eizos always look the same. The Cintiq color is just a bit lighter in the dark range. There’s some other very small discrepancies too, but I’m more concerned with the value range.
I use this workflow to check, since it most directly relates to my everyday practice of painting on screen in Photoshop
Thanks for your help!
