I'm an independent video professional based in the UK and have a question regarding monitor calibration. I mainly work on smaller corporate projects and my own projects. I will work on footage that's acquired on a range of cameras from 5Dmk's to Sony FS7 and Canon C300MkII.
My question is what calibration should I be using on my screen? I use a 27in 5k imac and a UltraSharp U2410 61 cm (24") Widescreen Monitor.
I'm aware that there are so many factors that contribute to accurate colour representation and viewing. I do not have the budget to purchase a grading monitor but would like to hear other peoples workflows.
Would buying a colour calibration device to a good option?
