Spectraview II: best calibration settings?

Jim Newberry , Sep 02, 2008; 06:32 p.m.

I have Spectraview II software (v 1.0.42) and an NEC 2490WUXi display (with a Mac Pro). I've found conflicting information on best settings to use (gamma, white point, contrast, etc.). Anyone have any suggestions? Good articles/faqs/resources on this topic? My main use is photographs for both print and Web.

on any software that exist as today:

2.2 gamma, 6500k for the white point, 120 cd/m2 ( on the other hand i personnaly prefer 105).

Thanks for the response. Do you have an opinion on where to set contrast ratio?

I use the print standard.tgt. It has D50, with a gamma of 1.8. My prints match my monitor. My monitor is 2090UXi, not as high-end as yours, but probably similar but smaller.
