I’m setting up my P800 / PiezoPro system and am down to the last variable, a viewing light for the print.
I do not have a viewing booth, but a dimmable LED light with a CRI of 96 and variable color temp. This is a small unit for cinema production and it is very color accurate.
I have built a small booth covered in neutral gray paper that is similar in tone to a Kodak gray card.
Now I need to determine just how bright my viewing light should be, i.e. how many lux should fall on the print? I have a calibrated Sekonic lightmeter that can measure lux, EV, foot-candles etc.
Can you please point me to some documentation that explains how I determine how bright my viewing light should be?
If my monitor is set to 85 cd/m2, how many lux should fall on my paper?
Below you can see all information pertinent to my setup.
