Video on Using SpyderCheckr with Hasselblad Phocus Now Available

I recently produced the English audio for this tutorial, which has now been integrated with the video. It covers how to use the Datacolor SpyderCheckr with Hasselbad’s Phocus RAW conversion software. So those of you with an interest in the SpyderCheckr for camera calibration, or who use Phocus for your RAW conversion, should take a look. There is a German version available as well. SpyderCheckr can be used with Adobe Camera Raw and Lightroom as well as with Phocus. Thanks to all who were involved in producing this video!

Datacolor Spyder4TV HD Cross-Grade Now Available

Datacolor released Spyder4TV HD recently, and I wrote a quick review of it. I immediately began getting email from people asking when the cross-grade from Spyder4Elite and Spyder4Pro would be available. The only answer I could offer was “soon”…

Well, soon is here. The Datacolor website now has a product page for the S4TV HD Cross-grade. If you own Spyder4Elite or Pro, you may want to purchase the cross-grade for calibrating TVs, Home Theaters, and Video Reference Displays. The cross-grade includes the necessary serial number to use your current Spyder4 with the TV HD software, plus four optical discs (a software install disc, NTSC and Pal/SeCAM DVDs, and a BluRay disc) and the SpyderWeb device to attach your Spyder to large TV screens. Pricing is listed at $69US.
