Datacolor has introduced a new Spyder4 line of advanced colorimeters for calibrating monitors, laptops, projectors, TVs and portable devices like iPads and iPhones.

Spyder4 is designed for photographers and creative professionals who require consistent and accurate colour reproduction. It provides a seven-channel sensor for detecting colour in much the same way as the human eye, ensuring the colours on the screen are true-to-life.  An easy-to-use interface with advanced levels of brightness and colour control meshes seamlessly with photographers’ workflows, while delivering the high levels of accuracy that professional photographers demand.  The new models provide an average of 26% more accuracy and improved low luminance performance over previous Spyder3 technology.


Spyder4 colorimeters are supplied with USB cables and calibration software.

Spyder4 Express (RRP $175) is a cost-effective colorimeter for calibrating a single display for a computer or laptop. iPad and iPhone calibration is also available with Datacolour’s free SpyderGallery app. Spyder4 Pro (RRP $250) includes ambient light measurement and the ability to calibrate multiple displays, as well as iOS devices. Spyder4 Elite (RRP $365) offers the highest level of customisation and can also be used to calibrate projectors. Developed for professional photographers, videographers and others who must match colours precisely, the Spyder4 Elite provides the tools to manage and calibrate multiple displays using a full set of gamma and non-gamma tone response curves. Custom calibration is supported and the Spyder4 Elite includes the L-Star workflow and supports the Cineon, NTSC, PAL and HDTV video standards.
