Re: Which looks more correct

Well, based on all your replies I've switched back to my old cheapie monitor, because at least with that I knew roughly what you all were seeing. I calibrated the color on the oldie as well, so that much will be a little better than before.pith

Re: Which looks more correct

I've checked this on both an uncalibrated and calibrated monitor, Pith. On both monitors, both pictures actually look fine to me. I (a fan of contrast) tend to prefer the first for it's slightly deeper shadows, but nothing is blown, and nothing appears overexposed in the second.

I used to calibrate my monitor with the Spyder2. I have since found it only calibrated color, and not brightness. I recently upgraded to Spyder3, which does both (and for more than one monitor). What calibration device are you using? Does it calibrate for brightness/contrast?

Re: Which looks more correct

I'm using an x-rite i1 display 2, which is an inexpensive one which appears to only do color. It has an advanced setting which might deal with brightness, but I haven't gotten up the nerve to try, and figure it out yet.pith

Pith, try having a go at this site:

It will show you a LOT about how your monitors are working....
