Product Highlights
  • Intuitive Color Calibration Solution
  • For Use with One or More Displays
  • Includes Color Measurement Device and CD

The X-Rite ColorMunki Smile Color Calibration Solution is a simple calibration tool to help ensure your laptop or desktop monitors are consistent and displaying proper color values. This calibration solution can be used with just one LCD or LED monitor or on several to maintain accuracy from monitor to monitor. Once the colorimeter has been placed over the desired monitor, operation and calibration is handled through an intuitive wizard-driven software program that utilizes the same color engine technology found in professional-level X-Rite color calibration solutions. Once calibrated, a before and after image can instantly show you comparative results.

A calibration reminder will also automatically notify you as to when it is time to re-calibrate displays, helping you to consistently maintain color accuracy across all of your monitors.

Helps to ascertain proper color accuracy and consistency on one or several monitors.
Straight-forward, simple software requires no color science knowledge.
Automatic reminders notify you when it is time to re-calibrate your monitors.
Simple online help videos provide troubleshooting assistance and eliminate the need to refer to other manuals.

    Bought this product from B&H 11/4/2013 after fighting with software based monitor calibrating tools. Sometimes photos printed great, other times I have to make several adjustments (dark photo print issues). I use a Canon 7D and my 2 lenses 17-55mm and my favorite 70-200mm 2.8 - use lightroom for print. (I shoot raw). I print mostly 12X18 on 13X19 - (expensive ink and paper to screw up on) on a Canon PRO 100.

    I installed the software 11/6 (no problems what-so-ever Win 7 Pro) and calibrated my 24" monitor. Several test prints the last 2 days (I used images I'd had problems with) came out excellent and matched extremely well with my monitor on different sized papers and profiles. Didn't see huge difference in before and after calibration on Monitor, but HUGE difference in the prints. Very happy with the results. Agree with another review - powerful results. I see upgrading in the future though. The "Smile" worth every penny.

    My prints are printing the way I want them to look.

    Once installed and running properly, calibration is simple and results are good: bot the internal LCD on my laptop and my external Dell UltraSharp IPS monitor look goog and they look as much like on another as one could expect.However, I almost returned this product and went shopping for a different manufacturer. The initial ColorMunki Smile installation was straightforward, but it didn't 'stick' -- I had to re-run calibration every time I re-booted or powered-up my system. Totally unacceptable.Online documentation / FAQs / Troubleshooting were worse than unhelpful, they sent me looking for files that don't exist in a ColorMunki Smile installation (but do exist for other X-Rite products). Finally found answers in a 3rd-party website by Mr. Laszlo Pusztai, but I was one click away from throwing in the towel.X-Rite really should create product-specific online support material for each product, and their installers need updating to deal with known problems (e.g., Intel video driver Persistence module problem).Will shop for alternatives before I buy another X-Rite product.

    I have been sharing images with my mentor and he commented my images seemed dark (or I was quite moody when processing them- he wasn't sure). I had never calibrated my monitor so I thought it was time. This device and SW installed with ease, worked just fine, and didn't break the bank.

                  the calibrator did a horrible job it had a red bias and the before and after picture honestly were staged. luckily it broke and kudos to b&h on their awesome return policies.

                  Comments about X-Rite ColorMunki Smile Color Calibration Solution:

                  I have three monitors from two different manufactureres. All three had a different interpretation of what the colors of my photos looked like. All you have to do is install and run the ColorMunki software and click on the monitor you want to calibrate. It asks you to center the m device on the monitor by draping the cord over the monitor. (A counterweight allows it to stay put.) About 5 minutes later one monitor is done. (seems a bit slow but it works!) Start again by selecting a different monitor and the process begins all over again.

                  Now all three monitors look EXACTLY the same. Two of my monitors are very directional and the viewing angle has to be within a narrow range to get the right contrast but when I am there all three are spot on!

                  One thing that was unclear was how should you set up your monitors on screen setup and brightness and contrast. A quick response from Xrite told me to set the monitors to their default settings before calibration and I may have to adjust brightness a bit. I did and the two directional monitors were a bit brighter so I turned them down a bit to match the dimmer one.

                  I am very pleased with this product. It took some digging to find that it is set to a gamma of 2.2 and the color temperature ends up at D65 6504K

                  A great value especially when on sale.

                  I have been looking for calibrating solution that doesn't break the bank for quite some time. I was not sure what to expect from this one. After I ran it on my dual monitor setup it did beautiful job. Both monitors now look exactly the same and editing pictures is not a guesswork anymore.

                    Installed without a hitch on two WIN7 desktop machines. Auto mode worked fine. Experimented with differing room lighting, program seemed to change settings with room lighting changes so set up with most common lighting. Too bad a similarly easy to use and affordable printer setting system does not exist.

                        It is very easy to use and calibrate both my MacBook Pro LCD screen and ASUS PA238Q external monitor. The ColorMunki software creates .icc profiles based on the measurements of the ColorMunki Smile spectrophotometer. The results are much better than anything I have been able to do with the software only based calibrations. The cost is very reasonable.

                        I have a 2013 MBPr (so OSX) and use an older LCD monitor as a second screen. I've used other calibrators in the past and this one just works.

                        It works with multiple screens and is priced right. Download/install the software from the manufacturer, plug it in, and run it. Takes about 5 minutes per screen.

                        Very happy with it.

                          I'm one of those people that HATES calibrating, but I know that it's essential for accurate and gorgeous prints. I pride myself on assuring my clients that their images will be gorgeous every time. ColorMunki smile is the perfect calibration tool for the photographer who wants accurate color, without having to spend a lot of time and money. I've used other calibration tools in the past that were hard to use, and provided less than professional results. Love ColorMunki smile!

                                      I tride to install on a Windows 8.1 with an Intel HD Graphics Driver. The worst possible situation. You have to get rid of the "Persistance Module" that Intel installs with its driver. If you don't delete it your color calibration will be thrown out each time you boot the PC. [@] I could not get any of the ColorMunki Drivers to work on Win8.1. I had to call X-Rite Technical Support to get things working. Support, at X-Rite, logged into my computer and got the drivers to load. It was really worth the effort as ColorMunki does a great job at color calibration. It uses almost 100 Color Swatches to determine the correct calibration. I really love it now. I had i1Match3, but it is no longer supported so I needed to replace it.

                                        I bought this product after failing miserably with the ColorVision Spyder 4, which for some reason just isn't compatable with my Samsung Laptop. (Most likely NOT colorvisions fault but probably all the stuff that Sumsung loaded onto the system that keeps over riding the profile)

                                        ColorMunki was SOO much better right out of the box. Did not require a single email to tech support. It's not perfect, the color balance is still a little warm, but it is well within the realm of acceptability and will do fine for the average user. The gamma is right on. It's a great investment

                                          after some issues getting my prints to match what I was seeing on the screen, I knew I needed hardware for calibration. this did the trick!
