I don't know if people use them for film work. If they do so, which one is good?

Please do guide me.

Are you trying to calibrate your monitors to match those in a telecine lab, or you calibrating monitors in the lab?

It could be any monitor... mostly lustre/telecine monitor of a recording facility.

I've used both colorimeters. Gretag EyeOne is very high quality, and it works with CRT and LCD monitors. Monaco Optix is also very good. I haven't used them on telecine monitors, however, and I'm not familiar with the color corrections sytem used in a telecine suite.

Colorimeter-assisted profiling software will calibrate your monitor(s) to a standard based on how the human eye perceives color. It will NOT manipulate the colors to fit a certain output standard or device description, however - it will only ensure that your monitor accurately displays the color numbers sent to your video card by your OS and ICC compliant applications. Applying color correction to your images through an ICC-compliant application (Photoshop, AfterEffects...) will work outside of your monitor profile, but your monitor profile will ensure that you see those colors accurately.
