I have an Epson 4780 Photo scanner, a Canon i9900 printer and a Sony 21"
GDM-F520 CRT monitor. I'm looking for suggestions for a color
calibration system.
Thanks for your suggestions.

Assuming you are running XP or 2000 [or the supported flavors of mac],
ColorVision Spyder2 Plus is hard to beat for the price -- particularly
if you don't already own PS Elements 3.

uh...., given that eye-one photo is about 5-6x the price of spyder2 plus, it
might be worth considering spyder even if you already have a copy of pse3 ....

If you want to use the name of the former Iron Lady - at least *SPELL* it
correctly - it's MARGARET.
