AuthorSubject: Recommendations for D50 Viewing?   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Michael Ivanitsky
Posted on Sun Aug 10, 2003 10:48 AM

My color work has now become critical enough that I realize that my 18W Ott-Lite is not adequate for critical color viewing. This is supported by the fact that it has a measured color temperature of 5800K, a bit higher than I would like, and it seems silly to generate profiles for such a cool light viewing condition.

I wish to purchase a D50 viewing device. I have looked at the GTI PDV-2/D and GTI SoftView 2e as possible choices. Is the SoftView series significantly better than the PDV in terms of precision of color temperature, luminosity, CRI, closeness to D50 standard, etc?

I can live without transparency viewing for now, but I will need a unit with a dimmer. I need to view prints up to about 12x16. Space on my desk is a bit limited.

Any other suggestions or other manufacturers whith I should consider?

thanks,

Mike Ivanitsky
