Photography Question

what monitor do you have


What do some of you have for monitors, and how do you like them. I am thinking of buying a new one and need input. Italked to someone who said the new IPS monitors are the best for digital photography. Thanks for the help. Tom Fleeman

doug Nelson   I have the NEC model with its own calibration device that sells for about $600. I like it. The people at shutterbug advise to calibrate with the luminance set to about 90, to avoid too dark prints. It is an IPS monitor.

Dell has at least one, and LG reportedly has two that are suitable for photographic work.

  Hi Tom,
I have used NEC (CRT) & Dell (flatscreen) in the past and they were both OK but if you are looking for a bit better quality, the Eizo's & Apple Cinema Screens are excellent. I switched to a 24" iMac 3 years ago and absolutely love working on this machine.
my .02,
Carlton

  Varanus niloticus. Never had any complaints. Have to keep it fed properly, because they're smart enough to learn how to open the refrigerator.

  I use a 2 monitor system. Your pc's video card has to allow that, you would have to check that first, well worth it if you can do it. I have a 20" dell and 24" visio which I love. Its amazing how convenient it is to work with 2 monitors rather than 1, I couldn't believe it until I tried it. the Visio was purchased at Costco about 2 yrs ago- great deal on it. If you are not a member there but at Sam's or BJ check them out. If none, it would be worth the membership price to go to Costco. Great return policy on all elecronics- 90days no questions asked no restocking fees.
