by Brenda K. Hipsher – December 7th, 2012

It’s that time of year when everyone is looking for that “just right” gift for the photographer in your family.  Coloratti Rick Sammon just published his suggestions for those photographers on your “nice” list this year. We’re very pleased to see ColorMunki Photo included in the guide. Rick makes the point that good color is important and ColorMunki Photo is an essential element in the digital workflow.

All the solutions in the ColorMunki Family make excellent gifts for the holiday season. ColorMunki Photo is a complete all-in-one option that includes monitor, projector and printer calibration and profiling with ColorMunki Photo software and the ColorMunki spectrophotometer.  The package also includes a mini ColorChecker Classic and Camera Calibration software making this the complete package from capture, to view, to print. This ColorMunki is just right for the photographer in your family that enjoys printing on their own printer. ColorMunki Photo offers complete control from end to end in the workflow. Check out this video of Rick talking about HDR photography and ColorMunki Photo.



If the photographer on your list sends out their printing to a lab you may want to consider ColorMunki Display and ColorChecker Passport. For monitor and projector profiling ColorMunki Display provides a superior calibration and profile that renders the photo accurately on the screen for editing before sending out to the lab. It also provides the opportunity to profile projectors so images shown to the family or to their photo club are as beautiful on the projection screen as they are on their laptop.  For the photographer preparing files to send out to a lab this is a great option. Through December 31, 2012 you’ll also enjoy a $35 rebate to make your gift list a little lighter on your wallet as well!

Adding ColorChecker Passport provides camera profiles and the option to do in-camera white balance. Custom in-camera white balance is vital for anyone shooting compressed formats like JPEG in camera and even for those shooting RAW who switch back and forth to video capture. ColorChecker Passport is a powerful tool for RAW still capture with custom profiles and other advanced options.

If you have a gamer, photo enthusiast, hobbiest, or designer on your list who views images on a computer screen, the new entry level ColorMunki Smile is a good option. Or maybe you send Grandma or Aunt Bea photos of the kids. Don’t they deserve to see accurate color, too?  ColorMunki Smile is a true “plug and play” option that’s amazingly simple to use for producing accurate color on a computer monitor.
