Datacolor releases SpyderX – their fastest color calibration tool yet.


Datacolor, well known for their Spyder color calibration tool for monitors has just announced the SpyderX, it’s fastest, most accurate color calibration tool yet.

Color calibration of your monitor is one of the most important things you can do to ensure that you have a good representative color and brightness on your screen. Calibration will help you get better prints and maintain a consistent look over time.

We know photography is a labor of love, and a lot goes into taking every shot. That’s why we’ve redesigned SpyderX from the ground up, ensuring you can trust the color on your screen while making the whole process of calibration as intuitive and quick as possible.”

Susan Butning, director of marketing at Datacolor

The fastest Spyder yet

Even those of us with color calibration tools don’t always use them consistently, which means if we adjust our monitors brightness while playing a video game or watching a tv show, editing photos with those new settings will result in inconsistent tones in our images. The SpyderX calibrates monitors in only 2 minutes (significantly less time than their previous models) and cuts out one of the key reasons photographers do not calibrate their monitors as often as they should.

The most accurate Spyder yet

Datacolor has spent the last three years creating a new lens-based color engine technology that allows for a significantly higher level of accuracy than previous models – more precise screen color, shadow detail, and white balance.

Pricing & Purchasing Information

The SpyderX is available for purchase at, Amazon or with authorized resellers.

The SpyderX comes in two versions, the Pro which we would recommend for most photographers who have basic monitor calibration needs and the Elite for photographers who have needs including simulating printed papers, creating profiles for projectors, and accessing advanced calibration controls.
