Anyone freak out the first time they calibrated their monitor? I have a Dell u2311h and I just got the Datacolor SpyderPro4. Did first calibration yesterday and wow! Brightness set at 91 and the color is much cooler now. Ambient was minimal when I calibrated. Just seems very bright to me. Thinking I should try again and see if I get different results?

Yeah, pretty bright. I think I'll re-calibrate.

Great shot mike! Do you use the ring flash in images like this one just for the catchlight? Vs using a large soft modifier right behind you.

Actually, I've seen them in person. They look really nice. I'd use them for displays and such. And really, just spend the few bucks and get a 10x10 to try it out.
