new imac - calibration issues

Hi all,

I received my new imac yesterday and so far all is good except for what I am seeing with my graphics.

I am trying to calibrate this monitor but once I do the changes don't seem to stick?

Everything almost looks as though it has a green cast to it.

Any easy recommendations on calibrating?

Hire a monitor calibration device from a photography shop. I use Calumet in the UK.

The new imacs 2012 should be below dE off 2 on sRGB out the box, and you should be able to pick sRGB as monitor profile. If it is green, bring it back.

That's a really good idea, although they shouldn't leave it on sRGB. The last generation the white point wasn't quite in line with sRGB, but it is a good quick test for such a display. Also you may not see <dE 2.0 on every color patch if you're looking at a whole chart. It depends what you're testing against, assuming a recent model colorimeter.
