    X-Rite Devices Hardware Revisions

    Searched quite a bit for this one specifically for the eye-one or i1 spectrophotometer or spectrometer. The eye-one pro device I have seen among the earliest ones were Gretag Macbeth, Swiss made, Rev A. Then we have a following all the way to Rev D. Could the great members here shed some light on the differences. I really wouldn't mind if the "light" shed were D65 or D50 ;-)
    Cheers!

    All revisions (A-D) of i1pro are D50, w/out or with UV cut filter (M0 and M2 mode in recent terms). Differences between revisons are mainly in speed and reliability of measurements.
    i1Pro2 (aka rev E) is capable of M0 and M1 mode measurements.

    Versions A-D all are illuminated by an incandescent lamp with a color temperature of approximately illuminant A (2850K). Corrections for lighting are done in software, where the user can choose the illuminant as well as observer angle. The rest of your post is accurate AFAIK.

    Yes, of course, from technical (structural) point of view, but same is true for i1Pro2, as there is same Tungsten lamp, with added UV diode. Allmost all instruments was using Tungstens in the past, and some are using even today.

    So, to be clear, as far as i know, from the light source point of view, there are no real D65 instrument on the market, and few real D50 instruments (some models from Konica-Minolta, Techkon, Barbieri), others are tungsten and different measurement conditions are computed.

    I believe the OP was actually making a joke regarding the color temp of the light (being SHED on the ISSUE :eyeroll:)
