gamma: 1.8 or 2.2, etc.

I am using a Mac G5 (1995), OS 10.5.8, and a LaCie electron b 22 CRT, with PS CS4, processing in camera raw and adobe RGB. I need a monitor calibrator (was using a Spyder, but unhappy with it), and will get an LCD when the LaCie croaks. My questions are:

1) Can I use the same calibration brand/system for both CRT and LCD? (The LCD would likely be a NEC PA 27xx or similar). If "yes" for certain brands, please suggest.

2) I have seen both 1.8 and 2.2 as the preferred gamma for Mac systems. Does this depend on age and hardware? For my current set-up, is 1.8 the correct number? What about for Lightroom 3?

3) Is ColorMunki any good for printer calibration (Epson R2400)?

Thank you for your help!

Sorry....  Although I see no other place to ask it, I'll withdraw the question.

This is not about rules, "right" or "wrong" forum - it is simply about where the experts are to give you answers to your questions.

Photoshop: http://forums.adobe.com/community/photoshop - there is also a link to the Lightroom forum.

I should just let this go, but....  The question(s) is primarily about gamma and CRT vs. LCD calibration, not Photoshop and Lightroom. It may be that folks are trying to tell me to break down the question into its component parts, and take them individually to the proper forum.

Thank you for your responses.

Yes you should. Just go to the Color management forum and ask there.

Thanks, Jochem. I would not have found it on my own.
