    Do not buy a ColorMunki Photo. The software is not supported by X-Rite and has not been updated in over a year!

  2. The link doesn’t have the info for the free promotion on it. Where is it?

    • The free profiling tools are available on Display2, DisplayLT, and on ColorMunki Photo purchases. When you register your device you will receive the FREE mini ColorChecker device and links to download ColorChecker Passport software. Enjoy!
