I was wondering how often should I calibrate the 9000 with IT8?

I don't think the LEDS shift much over time.... :roll:

i check mine everytime i do a large batch of slides. Which works out to 2-3 times per year. Probably overkill.

Monitor gets profiling several times a month.

Printer with every color cartridge change

Dear Hassiman,
i would like to emphasize what degrub said:

2 times a year is plenty enough for a stable scanner like the LS-9000 !
For other scanners i's love to calibrate every 2 minutes but not for the LS-9000 :-)

bets regards,

Nils Heidorn
