About Datacolor Spyder4Elite

The Datacolor Spyder4Elite is a display color calibration solution designed not only for photographers, but also videographers and video editors who need the highest level of color control in the studio and flexibility in post-production. The Spyder4Elite can also provide color calibration for projectors.

Spyder4Elite features a patented, full-spectrum 7-color sensor that can accurately characterize a variety of wide gamut and normal displays. Spyder4Elite software lets you use the same sensor to calibrate your monitor, laptop computer, iPad , iPhone and projector. No other calibrator has this capability. The fourth-generation sensor uses double-shielded filters for longer life and better performance. On average, accuracy and precision are improved by 26% and 19% respectively.

Datacolor Spyder4Elite Features

  • Automated Color & Brightness Calibration: Spyder4Elite's simple, clear and automated process makes it straightforward to calibrate your displays to a reference condition
  • Full-spectrum color sensor: Spyder4Elite's patented 7-color sensor improves upon colorimeters that use 3-channel RGB sensors. Each Spyder4Elite unit is individually tuned in the factory to accurately handle a variety of wide-gamut and normal gamut displays with ease
  • Single sensor calibrates all your displays: Spyder4Elite works with your laptop, multiple monitors, front projector, television (with paid software upgrade on website), iPad and even iPhone. It works with LCD, LED, OLED, CRT, DLP and other display technologies
  • Improved accuracy and stability: The fourth-generation Spyder4Elite has double-shielded color filters for an even closer match to CIE color standards and improved long term stability. Average accuracy increased by 26% and consistency between Spyder units has improved 19%
  • Fast Re-calibration Assistant: The "ReCAL" feature makes it quick and easy to recalibrate your display to compensate for changes that occur over time
  • Adapts display to surrounding light: The lighting around you will affect image contrast and appearance. An additional sensor on the Spyder4Elite detects changes to surrounding light and adapts the display luminance accordingly

Excellent delivery - easy set-up and execution. Works like a charm and even let's you know when / if you need to re-calibrate your monitor. The ambient light sensor works extremely well - if S Kelby uses this, then it was a sure hit purchase for me.

This is a fantastic product


from Chester Springs, PA  -  Adult

I recently purchased the Spyder4Elite to provide a better calibrated monitor, so i can make better digital files or prints. The software installation make the process easy to set up and do calibration. There's also calibrations for your laptop and iPads and calibration of DSLR cameras. Highly recommend the Datacolor Spyder4Elite for photographers and videographers to have a well rounded system that meet your needs.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
DAVID P  Upgraded from a Spyder3Elite for the better sensor. Very satisfied with the product.
KEITH K  Have a MAC, with this work well. I primarily use Adorama Lab and ask for no color correction. What will this product do for me?
DOMINIC N  It depends on how accurate you want your colors to match up to your print. On a mac, it's more subtle, but the difference is there if you don't use color calibration.
Shopper  Anyone tried running Spyder4 Elite on Maverick? Any problems?
THOMAS S  I've run Spyder 4 Elite on Maverick twice without any problems. Runs the same as always. Quick, easy, and accurate.
