    Im in the market for a new monitor for photo editing...I have been using my Mac Book Pro for sometime but finding the colors are just not correct. I have calibration (eye one2) device to calibrate...I recently bought an Apple Cinema 20' but really thought the Mac Book Pro and Cinema might be slightly closer to color and brightness than what Im getting.

    First I have calibrated both using eye one 2. The Cinema has much more saturated coloring and almost a green hue than the Mac Book Pro. If I edit on my MBP and take to Cinema changes in the photo would be made which is not good.

    Is there one better cinema monitor than another....

    As a side note....
    I also have a Imac 20 inch...All three now calibrated and all three look different????????

    They're all calibrated differently- grab the calibration profile off the one you like best and get the others to use it: /User/Library/ColorSync/Profiles...
