  • I've narrowed my choice, I think, down to the Dell u2415 and the EIZO ev2336, with no assurance from my telephone chat with B&H that the EIZO will return to B&H's stock anytime soon. It's most ...
  • Thanks, JimC, Would I need to re-boot each time I wanted to switch from my Lightroom activities to my MS work, and/or back, or could I create some sort of default for the MS work, rather than ...
  • Bryan, Thanks for the British tip.  At current currency conversion rates the Amazon UK Eizo ev2455 (it appears to be a splendid monitor, by the way) would be about $439 USD--in the UK, but here in ...
  • While JimC, especially, has greatly eased my concern here about the adequacy of my PC and graphics card to support a new IPS monitor and I think my choices of monitor have been significantly ...
  • Ah...Where would one find an Eizo ev2455 cheaper than the NEC ea244WMI?  For example, B&H sells the NEC at $362, the Eizo at $569.  The entry-level Eizo ev2336 is about $368 at B&H.  Perhaps you ...
  • JimC, Indeed the card outputs are quite like Example 1 and much easier to see in your image than on the card itself, which in anything but decent lighting and a rather closer observation, was just ...
  • JimC, Thanks again for clearing up the graphics card issue. I'll pursue the Dell U2415 but it appears to me that, without some sort of adapter (and these may be an issue with HDMI), I may not have ...
  • JimC, Thanks for the update.  I PM'd you because I didn't want to bog down this DPR thread with lengthy lists of my PC's secs extracted from the systwem info on the PC.  That's quite good news on ...
  • Malch, You're generally correct about the priorities here and I'm simultaneously trying to nail down the appropraite monitor upgrade for my budget.  The reason, of course, that I need the new ...
  • Based on advice from all over, including friends and this forum, I think I've narrowed down the modest monitor upgrade, within my budget (up to $400 for the monitor alone, and excluding the ...
  • Here's a partial quotation from Thom's April 15 article: "...My hope is that I’ll be popping the D750, D810, D7200, and D4/D4s books out one by one on a fairly regular basis between now and the ...
  • Created discussions AF Fine Tuning Distance?
    Although I've not spent much time with my relatively new D750, and have no particular dissatisfaction with its AF abilities, I'd like to experimentally spend just a bit of time experimenting with ...
  • For me, I'm looking forward to Thom Hogan's ebook for the D750.  it'll be about $30-40, but is likely the most comprehensive D750 book purchase I can make (I've owned and read with great benefit ...
  • As I quickly pound my forehead and mutter "Ureka", it occurs to me, after reading your post, that I should have remembered the obvious, that is, because I'm upgrading from my several-year old 19" ...
  • Leprechaun1, Your post re the HDMI and DVI connections that the OP should go with the HDMI connection because it supports 1920 x 1080 implies that DVI does not. I've got a modestly older desktop PC ...
  • With my Spyder 3 Express which I think is supposed to take into account ambient light during the calibration process, assuming your monitor has stabilized by having been on at least a half hour, I ...
  • I've so far avoided live view with my earlier Nikon DSLRs, but now that I've moved on to a D750, I'd like to experiment a bit with landscapes (where working apertures are often pretty forgiving in ...
  • Pictus, Thanks for the tip on the NVIDIA card.  I wonder, though, if the HDMI/NVidia problem discussed in your other link might make an NVidia card a not fully-functioning choice for me if I were ...
  • Pictus, I've checked B&HM at least, for the two Dell monitors you cited and these, especially the P2414Q, might be just beyond my budget, especially when I take into effect your helpful note re ...
  • Ah...I was mistakenly looking for a review of a NEC ea244WMI (which I assumed would include a PWM discussion) and also, a NEC ea234WMI monitor, but the chart you pasted in your most previous email ...
