Monitor calibration can occur in pitch blackness... and ideally should. The only monitor connection is that you are using the light to compare a print to the monitor... the light being on the print, not the monitor. This is significant for profile building and editing. An OttLite is a better choice than most other affordable solutions. If you buy it in a lamp, they will have provided a reasonable reflector for you. If you but a screw-in, then be careful what you reflect it with... this includes your walls. C. David Tobie Design Cooperative CDTobie@designcoop.com - Turn off HTML mail features.
