for actual calibration and profiling. I am not asking you to implement it (it is to early to do so :] - I will need to have a solid proof that Spyder can actually do even better job than it does now), I am just asking about theoretical possibility - would it be tough to do?
The problem with modes is that they are traps that cause a stream of queries. "Why didn't this work ?" "You had it in the wrong mode" "I forgot/How was I supposed to know/I didn't understand what it did". So if there is some way of avoiding having a mode and just have things work well all the time, it's far better for everybody. At the moment you've seen a problem that can be worked around at some cost for your situation, but I'm wondering how common that will be. Your workaround doesn't work for my situation, with a dimmer display with a blacker black point. An alternative conclusion is that the Spyder 3 simply isn't a good instrument for measuring low light levels, and so shouldn't be used with certain displays. But I'm open to ways of improving how the Spyder 3 works, without making it unusable. Graeme Gill.
