Klaus, thanks for interesting info, didn't know that colorimeters comes
with custom tuning for particular displays. Going to read more about this.

Just as Pascal, I own Huey and Argyll doesn't seems to be able to use it
for measuring ambient light. Lprof provide data using it, but it's only
luminosity but color temperature always still the same. And I'm not sure
if it could be trusted.
Can you please tell more about ways of measuring ambient lighting using
camera? If there is article about this, URL would be very appreciated.
