Does Spyder5 use the same “*.bin” corrections than Spyder4? I mean the same data and/or the same number of backlight types.
Yes, absolutely identical.
So if you have tested a Spyder5 for DCG3 release, we would like to know that things before buying a brand new Spyder5 colorimeter: how many backlight types, nm resolution, RGBW or just W specta…
I don’t have a Spyder 5 myself (yet), Graeme has tested and compared it to the i1D3 during implementation. It seems for the most part identical to the Spyder4 (same speed, filters look the same etc.), but the sample Graeme tested was measurably more accurate than a Spyder4 for what it’s worth. If that was just a good sample or if the accuracy of a Spyder5 compared to a Spyder4 is generally higher is hard to tell without looking at more samples.
To be honest, if you’re looking to buy an instrument, from what I know and have seen (Graeme would probably agree) an i1D3 (ColorMunki Display or i1 Display Pro) is still better accuracy/repeatability, speed and low light sensitivity wise, and has better filters.
