Yes, iCColor 300 series can do RA4, E6 and C41 chemical control and can also read reflective test charts (eg ECI2002, IT8.7/3) relatively fast (ECI2002 in 15 minutes). Unfortunately, the device can’t read transmissive profiling charts.
I can’t understand why GretagMacbeth always forgets the last detail to make their products perfect. Example of this are many: EyeOne with interchangeable filters (UV, Pol), iCColor with spectral readings for transmission, DensiEye 700 with contrast calculation, faster SpectroScan with USB, SpectroEye with smaller aperture (at least 3mm), PM5 MeasureTool with dot area & dot gain export, EyeOne Display 2 with 3D gamut compression, black measurement for adjusting color cast in shadows (in monitors that can) and calibration verification. As some say… life isn’t perfect.
this is an astute observation that I share. I hadn’t put it together but you are right. There seems to be a lilttle something left out… X-Rite does this as well it seems…

I can’t understand why you can get removable filters for the Spectrolino, but not for the i1…or the ICColor for that matter. Is there something about the set up of the hardware that makes it a disadvantage to be able to change filters, or is it just that gluing the UV filter on is cheaper than manufacturing a removable one?
I think that this, and the other problems mentioned by Xavier sometimes come out of a very strong desire within GMB to segment markets.
When I ask about missing things (like filters for the Eye-One) the answer I get is that the customer can go to the 'Lino for filters. Obviously this is not an option for many users. When I mention the lack of USB, etc on the 'Lino I hear ‘that’s what the i1’s for’… I understand the desire (and need) to segment markets but I wish they’d talk to us about where the lines get drawn.
