    Colormunki/ArgyllCMS profile lacking dark tones (compared to ccStudio)

    The 3D-model looks like wrong reading. Please reread the target at a much slower pace, about 3 seconds over 1 row. The reason is the Colormunki is 4 times slower in taking samples from the patches (50 samples/second instead of 200 samples/second for the i1Pro2). It is full of errors. I always do...

    Has anyone used Precisions chipless kit for the SC-P800?

    Actually: i am using years open loop cartridges in my Epson Pro 3880/P-800 machines: not more clogs than using original cartridges at al (closed loop). Besides: where normal Epson cartridges sitting on print head are open loop cartridges too, because they need breathing. Ohh yes: José even...

    Has anyone used Precisions chipless kit for the SC-P800?

    I am using refillable cartridges with auto reset chip: unlike the older Pro 3880 no original cartridge chips needed for the chip sensor. They reset automatically when removed from the printer and show accurately ink level...but I live in Europe, so the printers accept refillable cartridges...

    Colormunki/ArgyllCMS profile lacking dark tones (compared to ccStudio)

    Please upload the generated *.ti3 file, so we can look at it and I can regenerate the profile and look for some crulpits in it. The 480 patch target is proven to be a very good target and should be even better compared to the 50 + 50 method of X-rite/Calibrite even with 2 extra optimization scans.

    Colormunki/ArgyllCMS profile lacking dark tones (compared to ccStudio)

    Did you use perceptual intent or relative colorimetric ? ArgyllCMS profiles have a particular behaviour that for relative colorimetric intent you will have to disable black point compensation to achieve the deepest black.

    Colormunki/ArgyllCMS profile lacking dark tones (compared to ccStudio)

    Try this set of mine: you will need a custom made ruler to guide the Colormunki over these tiny patches. Anyhow: 210 patches are too low to get a satisfactory profile. You will need at least 400-500 to get a satisfactory profile with ArgyllCMS with a predictable (linear behaving) printer.

    Aldi Expertiz Photopaper - Germany

    I am afraid the PE coated papers are no longer available in Aldi. I am desperate looking for those Exptertiz, Netbit, SihlX papers that are really good quality for the price. Only El Cheapo cast coated photo papers of inferior quality.

    Colormunki Photo for sale

    If you want to use ArgyllCMS. I have produced a very easy to read 480 patch target that produces superior targets compared to even the 50 + 2 x 50 patch method of ccStudio.

    Colormunki Photo for sale

    Hi Lothar, you should indeed scan slower and move the Colormunki with a much slower pace when scanning these patches. The reason is that the Colormunki takes 50 samples per second: moving too fast and it cannot pick up enough information of each miniature patch. I move with a speed of about 2-3...

    ArgyllCMS 648 patch target for i1 Pro 2 device.

    I think Stormlight means the rebranded X-rite device (EFI ES-2000): Don't worry I bought it for a fraction of the price and it was almost brand new (backup from a photographer.

    ArgyllCMS 648 patch target for i1 Pro 2 device.

    After my recently purchased i1 Pro 2 device, I made this 648 patch target to be printed on a single sheet of A4 (210x297 mm). Optimized to be used with the dedicated ruler/jigg of the I1 Pro 2 device. The modified target has a clear black marker line with a white area on the paper surface to...

    My new (second hand) X-Rite i1-Pro 2 Basic spectrophotometer kit

    It was absolutely a bargain: an almost never used (was a backup for a photo studio), including the reading panel/jigg for making printer profiles. Unfortunately no license to do printer profile, but happily using Argyl lCMS.
