Datacolor Christmas Offer! Save up to £100!


A calibrated monitor helps save money and is the linchpin for further image processing. When you start editing images, it is the right time to calibrate your monitor. Because only on acalibrated monitor you can judge which colours are really in the image file. Does the soft proof of an image to be printed really reflect what the printing process claims to be able to do? Are the colours of a video really correct? In the end, there is always an investment in paper, ink or even an order from a photo print service, and with a calibrated monitor, the confidence of being able to hold the desired result in one’s hands also increases.

Datacolor®, a global leader in colour management solutions, is offering a wide range of Spyder products for photographers at attractive rates as part of its Christmas promotion.

Customers can save up to £100 when buying a SpyderX Elite.
