Datacolor 'Summer' Competition - Enter Now! - You've got just over a week to enter the Datacolor competition to win Spyder colour calibration goodies.
The Datacolor 'Summer' competition closes on 31 August, so get your entries in now if you want to be in with a chance of winning fab Spyder colour calibration goodies!
Here's what's up for grabs:
1st Prize: SpyderCAPTURE PRO
SpyderCAPTURE PRO™ is the ultimate bundle to capture and view your images in stunning true colour. It provides all the essential tools you need to help manage colour from the beginning to end of your digital workflow. Calibrate your camera and lenses with the SpyderLENSCAL™; use the SpyderCUBE™ to control contrast and white point balance; control color balance with the SpyderCHECKR™ and calibrate your monitor with the Spyder4ELITE™ to view your images in brilliant true colour. These tools offer precision performance and are easy to use in the studio or on location. The rugged aluminum case provides convenient storage and protection for all the Spyder tools so you can take them anywhere.
2nd Prize: Spyder4ELITE
Spyder4ELITE™ features a patented, full-spectrum 7-colour sensor that can accurately characterize a variety of wide gamut and normal displays. Spyder4ELITE software lets you use the same sensor to calibrate your computer displays, projectors, TVs (with purchase of the Spyder4TV HD cross-grade), plus iPads, iPhones and Android devices (with the free SpyderGALLERY App). No other calibrator has this capability. The fourth-generation sensor uses double-shielded filters for longer life and better performance. On average, accuracy and precision are improved by 26% and 19% respectively.
3rd Prize: SpyderCHECKR PRO
Start your colour control at the capture stage with the new SpyderCHECKR PRO. These tools allow photographers to color calibrate their cameras, perform precision in-camera white balance and record known-color samples. The only colour reference system that supports Hasselblad’s Phocus software, SpyderCHECKR allows photographers to obtain consistent, accurate colour within a standard RAW processing workflow. The sturdy, eco-friendly design has 48 spectrally engineered colour patches and easy to use calibration software.
To be in with a chance of winning one of these fab colour calibration prizes, all you need to do is show us your best 'Summer' themed images. These could be anything from coastal sea scapes and adventures on your holidays to picnics at the park or simply enjoying the summer sunshine in your back garden during the recent hot weather we've been having. Portraits, landscapes or macro images; anything goes as long as it shouts 'Summer'!
