The i1pro2 doesn't use a white LED - it intentionally uses an incandescent lamp,
just as the i1pro does, so unless it is fitted with a UV filter, you will
get UV included measurements. The pro2 has a separate UV LED, which allows
better characterization of FWA/OBE. Currently I'm not making use of that
in Argyll.

You capture the spectral readings by default in chartread, and then use -fM2 in
