I agree. However, family members are wanting prints. I went ahead and bit the bullet and ordered it from B&H at full price (hate that!). However, even though it is "next day shipping," it won't get here before Friday. I just get behinder and behinder. . .
I just had a thought, though. Since I had to order the Spyder at full price, perhaps I need to order a lens that is on sale in order to make up for it!
Makes sense, right?
(That's my story and I'm sticking to it!)
In a pinch, before calibration, I've ordered prints online and picked up at local places like Costco, using their color correction services. That works well enough for things like printing Christmas cards and such for family. That said, I've been calibrated for several years and it's definitely the way to go instead of relying on someone else to get it right.
