    Lokoing at getting a new Imac and wondering if Im going to be able to get the newer glossy screens calibrated since sooo bright. Has this been a problem and is there a work around???

    Is the older cinema screens better to use....any help would be great..

    Also list calibration device that will work the best if you happen to know with the Imac

    I wouldn't be worried as much about it being bright as I would with the glossy screen and higher saturation of colors. With that being said, I do a lot of photography work on my computer and have found that the images print from the lab as I want them. It takes a little tinkering around in photoshop to get the correct profile set up to make this work but it helps a lot.

    There are countless threads on Macrumors about which screen (matte or glossy) is better and why. To each his's personal preference.

    I just got my new 24"/2.8 last week and it was a bit too bright and warm on arrival, so I spent a minute or so making a custom gamma. Now it's fine.

    There is an overall brightness slider, but the custom gamma is your friend. You can control color as well as brightness here, and you can calibrate it yourself to your output device.

    If you truly need anything more than this, then you're probably making enough money at it to buy whatever you want, so I don't think there's any need to be concerned.:cool:
