Datacolor unleashes Spyder5
Datacolor Spyder5 is the color accuracy solution designed by photographers for photographers, to help them see, share and print their images, just as they intended.
The available versions of Spyder5 – the EXPRESS, PRO and ELITE – will surely reduce the hassle of figuring out why digital photographs look different on screen, and why the colors on screen don’t match photo prints. All Spyder5 product versions adjust, or calibrate, monitors to an industry color reference standard so colors are accurate and shadow and highlight details are preserved. With true screen color, photographers can more accurately edit their photos and achieve better print matching.
The next generation Spyder5 colorimeter is compact, portable and protected for use on all laptop and desktop monitors. Datacolor has redesigned Spyder’s patented 7-detector optical engine to deliver up to a 55% improvement in tonal response, resulting in more accurate shadow detail and smoother gradients.
Spyder5EXPRESS is a cost-effective tool for serious photographers seeking an easy-to-use color accuracy solution through a simple, interactive four-step process guide. Using its before and after feature, users can evaluate calibration results using a professional Datacolor composite image. Spyder5EXPRESS also supports multiple monitor calibrations.
Spyder5PRO is ideal for photographers and creative professionals looking to take their skill and artistic vision to the next level by achieving precise color accuracy. Advanced features include an integrated ambient light sensor for room light monitoring, an extensive range of calibration settings, display analysis and the ability to import images for before and after calibration evaluation.

Spyder5ELITE offers a built-in tripod mount to easily calibrate front projector displays. Expert features include an unlimited range of calibration settings, comprehensive display analysis, advanced before and after evaluation of imported images, monitor matching and tuning, and optimized gray balance routines.
