Borrow a colorimeter in LA area

Postposted on Thu Sep 29, 2011 11:37 pm

Are there any gerbils in the Los Angeles area willing to lend me their colorimeter so I can calibrate my U2410? :D

If you're not using it for professional work, this might be enough.

Find a dedicated audio/video store or photography shop, they might have one you can rent.

I've tried those, but the TFTCentral ones turn my screen pink or purple, and the user submitted ones all have gammas all over the place and color casts for some reason. Thanks though.

I suppose that's worth checking out.

Calorimeter. I think the reasons for needing to borrow a colorimeter are a little more obvious.

I've heard quickgamma works ok. Never tried it myself. Maybe that in combination with one of those ICC profiles would work for now.
