Noob question, is HDR a separate calibration from SDR?
and if so does this include the function?

For most devices, yes.

Depends on how high the brightness you are measuring. this one should be accurate up to 1000~ nit. If you require one that go up to 2000~ nit you need the X-Rite i1Display Pro Plus. You will know you require it if you actually require it.

Aw lucky, I would've grabbed the open box as well. Updated OP to include Vistek

I bought one of these last year on a whim then bought an LG OLED and Cal-Man. CAN I use this to calibrate my CX?

From what I gather I should have bought the Xrite one but I was being cheap/ stupid. I think I should have just paid someone with an x rite monitor to do this for me lol. Any way to get this to work using what I have?

I've used this and the X-Rite i1.

I found the x-rite i1 to be better overall.

Displaycal is great software to pair with this.

Looks like Vistek screwed me out of another deal. They had open-box stock on their website earlier, so I placed my order right away. They accepted payment, so I expected them to ship my order by the end of the week. A few minutes later I noticed the listing was removed from their site, so I thought maybe I got the last one they had.

Just got an email indicating that due to "website issues" they can't fill my order. Apparently someone before me already purchased the open-box item that was listed on their website, and because the website stock checker isn't in real-time their staff wasn't quick enough to update it. In this case the mistake is on their end so they should honor the deal to keep a customer happy, but that's not the case. I received an email from their CSR, and they told me I'm SOL, and there's nothing they're going to do about it.

This is annoying because it's the second time in recent months they've done that to me. I followed the store policy listed on their website and both times they weaseled out of them.

Ended up ordering from The Camera Store since they had stock.

I bought this at the previous sale price from Henry’s about 10 days ago. Had no problems getting this new sale price matched.

I have a spectracal C3 (which in software is apparently a colormunki), and a Spyder 4. Both are 4ish years old and arent models without lenses or anything. Do models like this one that are sealed last longer (stay accurate longer), if anyone knows?

The reviews for this are mediocre for the price.

Ugh, everytime I see these.

I don't need to *OWN* one

Just to *USE* one for each monitor I have. ONCE.. maybe twice.

$99USD plus shipping and fees. I think it works out to under $130 to Alberta. Not sure about Ontario.

I ended up cancelling my order with The Camera Store, because I can save around $10 going through B&H. Plus, I also had US funds in my Paypal account.

I'm trying to pay as little as possible, because these are one of those things you'll use only once and then put on the shelf for the next 10 years.

I know almost nothing about this stuff :), but I did some searches and from what I found the LG OLEDs max out well below 1000, which someone pointed out in this thread was around the max for this device, so maybe it's fine?

Can some one comment on this.
I have read that certain calibator's, their bulbs? wear out?
Is this correct?
And, is this model affected by this issue?
Thanks

Monitor colours shift over time. If you're a media producer and need accurate colour, you would be calibrating your monitors monthly or quarterly.

But if you just want the colour to be in the ballpark, you can probably find them used for cheap and sell them at no loss.
