Color management and color calibration tool
I moved this over from the New Members forum…
I have read some great advice on this forum about not going crazy and buying new kit items (lens) until you use your kit for some time. I am looking into purchasing a color management and color calibration tool. Some of the first prints I printed at the local Ritz/Wolf Camera did not look like what I had on my screen. BTW, I will most likely continue to use Wolf or the like for the short term.
Any thoughts on if this is a good investment for a newbie? And if so, what would you recommend?

Absolutely, I think a calibration/profiling system is a good idea no matter your skill level if you are going to be printing your images and sharing them on the web and with family/friends. This is especially true if you shoot people subjects since getting the skin tones correct can be difficult without a calibrated monitor.
There are a number of systems that are reasonably priced. I particularly like the products from X-Rite like the i1 Display and ColoMunki systems.
