consistent instrument. Have you got any experience with the ColorMunki. Is it normal that, after I calibrate or disconnect the instrument, I can get a*b* values from -1 -1 to +1 +1? I am using the ColorMunki software to get the L*a*b* values (ColorMunki Photo ColorPicker).
Someone else has reported some slight drift, possibly due to temperature effects. I haven't noticed such things myself (in fact I've seen remarkably consistent results under some circumstances). For instance, reading a grey patch twice, with a disconnect and recalibrate between: 1) 51.195461 -0.069722 -0.464168 2) 51.205465 -0.066214 -0.470761 3) 51.219005 -0.059376 -0.446057 Note that I was very careful not to move the instrument between the measurements. After moving the instrument slightly: 4) 50.942503 -0.010779 -0.569384 So homogeneity of the sample seems a far larger source of inconsistency than the instrument, over the short term at least.
