Any photographer or printing lab knows the importance of calibration – it’s essential!

Here, at the Guild of Photographers we assess up to 18,000 competition images per year from around the globe, and every month during our long history we have seen great images that could score so highly let down by poor calibration. Having correctly calibrated equipment is so essential especially if images are to be printed. Colour alibration is critical to ensuring your images always look accurate and consistent across all your devices.

We personally use who we consider to be the market leaders – Datacolor®! Our office uses their devices and find them easy to use and so easy to use. We would highly recommend them hence we are sharing details of their amazing Summer sale!
