    “After over 2,200 color scans I must say that I am incredibly pleased with this app, the Nix Scanner and the company.

    It is easy to use and understand, and very accurate; it has 5 different ways to present the color values.
    Color fidelity is great on iPhone. Darn good even on my Samsung Android which is known to have a screen with a definite color shift to the blue.
    The company is VERY responsive to user questions and goes above and beyond the call of duty to help. My Nix had a minor glitch at the worst possible time for me. I emailed the Nix folks at what was 9:00pm their local time. And Zachary responded within 15 minutes! He asked good, clarifying questions and made sure that I took the proper steps to protect my precious color data.”

    I received my Nix Pro Color Sensor as a gift and immediately started playing with it and thinking on how it would be useful as an Interior Designer’s tool. I have to say I use it in every project! It is a staple tool for my workflow. I can color match anything from a plant leaf to fiberglass chair color. I can capture true color, find its paint match or its use its color coding in my renderings, I use it for branding colors and it gives me the language to pass on to graphic designers and fabricators. I don’t have to worry about shadows or over exposure of light when matching colors. Its technology is astounding and its so easy to use. Its small, well designed and makes me look good! Thanks Nix Sensor Ltd.!!!

  6. Joe Colannino, Watercolorist says:

    I have a Nix Pro Color Sensor and I LOVE IT. I use it for my watercolors. I prepared a graphic using their color sensor and six or more dilutions of 37 various pigment swatches I prepared. From the streaklines, you can see how chroma and hue change with dilution and converge to the ultimate hue and chroma of the underlying paper… I calculated the streaklines by using a least squares algorithm with truncated Laurent and Taylor series. With these calculations I can find the dilution corresponding to maximum chroma. Since the maximum is an interpolation (LS regression) of the data, I have no actual swatch to measure to obtain colorimetric coordinates. However, I can calculate L* a* b* measurements in CIELAB space, and … then calculate the coordinates of other spaces using conversion algorithms that also exactly duplicate the coordinates given by the Nix Color Calculator. This also tells me that their color conversions are accurate.

    It’s the worst when you’re standing in front of the paint swatches in Home Depot, trying to figure out if that perfect colour you found had more blue tones or yellows in it. Even worse, when you have nothing to sample it against. For someone who has a love for colour and how it can impact a space so drastically, I would 100% encourage any designer to pick themselves up this amazing life saver. It will not disappoint you or your clients

    As a sign shop owner, we are often mixing paint to match existing signs or a vinyl color. Scans have been matched to Sherwin Williams and Behr paints with great results and I can also now custom print vinyl to specs for a match to something I have in hand. Relatively simple to use and store colors for later. Already worth the price in my shop.

    Ordered one many months ago and have been using it all the time for scanning objects to match with colours for making 3D printing filaments.

    Though it would have been awesome if the device would immediately show (nearest) ral colours I’ve been able to use with a high chance of success to depict the closest matching Ral.

    The Nix Pro is easy to use and I would recommend it to anyone who wants an affordable yet accurate color scanner.

    P.s. You guys need an European distributor 😉
