Real benifits of color calibrated screen?
Jan 14, 2013

I've recently been thinking about ways of editing photos when traveling, and have been considering the various laptop and tablet options, and getting a convertible windows 8 machine with lightroom etc and the thing that I always come up against are the comments and the thought that I'll be editing photos on a non calibrated screen.

It started to make me think though, just how important is a calibrated screen. Yes, for prints I can see the benifit, but any editing I do whilst traveling will be for posting on facebook or blogs. Is there really any benifit to doing this on a calibrated screen? Part of me would even think it might be better to do it on a normal consumer screen, seeing as this is what the pictures will almost inevitably be viewed on so I may as well optimise them for such a device.

Am I going crazy or does this seem sort of logical? If so it will make buying desicions alot easier
