Eizo screens, what calibration tool?

Hi people,

Not sure if this has been asked before, could not find it so i´ll give it a go.

What calibration tool do you use with your Eizo screen. I have both the spyder (older version) and Eye1. The results from those two are pretty far apart, and both feel like they make my screen way too saturated and contrasty.

Any thoughts..?

Have a good one / D

The eizo usually comes with a disc which has a program called ColorNavigator. Use that and a Eye1 and it's good results.

Thanks for your reply.

I tried that combo (colornavigatior + eye1) but the result is horrible.. All red.
Can it have something to do with my settings, i would assume not since Im just doing the auto mode. Maybe my monitor is broken..

Re: Eizo screens, what calibration tool?

Make sure that you're eizo's USB is hooked up to your computer. And in the color navigator program select "photography/design" as a designation for your monitor, not printing.

Do you have the little appendage for the eye1, where you can hang it on your monitor? if you don't you should have it (comes with the kit) and also when calibrating, tilt your monitor slightly to the back so the eye1 rests on it comfortably.

What it could also be is that the eye1 calibrates itself on the white baseplate of the little holder, if that baseplate is screwed somehow, you'll never get good results.....

I use an Eizo CG222W connected to a Macbook Pro. Usb port in monitor connected to computer. Using Eizo Colornavigator and Eye1 gamma 2.2 and white point at D65.
Better results than Eye1 software.
