  • armdig: Thanks for all the useful information. Monitor is due to arrive later today, so getting ready to check things out. Been about 10 years since I last did this. Since you've recently done this ...
  • I started the thread hoping to hear from actual users. Very often website reviewers are guilty of "irrational exuberance".
  • BenQ res is 1920x1200, a bit higher than my current (very acceptable) Dell 2209WA which is 1680x1050.  The BenQ is 24.1", 16:10, has also a slightly larger view than the Dell. BenQ SW 240 is newest ...
  • Replied in Spyder5PRO
    Just purchased newly released BenQ SW240 monitor designed for photography (awaiting delivery).  Displays full gamut sRGB, Adobe RGB, and others.  Contains a LUT that can store 2-3 calibrations.  ...
  • Replied in Spyder5PRO
    I guess I was looking for a correlation between the ambient room light measured by the Spyder5 (designated High, Medium, Low, etc) and the cd/m2 target set in monitor calibration.  My monitor's ...
  • Thanks - I think BenQ has recently re-defined and re-named their monitors as follows: SW series  - for photographers PD series - for (graphic) designers PV series - for video post-production The ...
  • Replied in Spyder5PRO
    Thanks.  Just what I wanted. Any idea how to translate the qualitative light levels "low", "medium", "high" , etc into cd/m2 values?
  • Replied in Spyder5PRO
    Yes, I found it.  Thanks! At first an Error Message stating that puck was not connected -- but after a while the Spyder icon turns red and all is as expected.  Sorry that it does not report the ...
  • Created discussion thread BenQ SW240 Monitor
    Anyone using the new BenQ SW240 monitor. Getting good reviews but too new for customer feedback. Any users? Any opinions?

  • Created question thread Spyder5PRO
    I'm using a DataColor Spyder5Pro to calibrate my monitor.  I'd like to measure and display the ambient room lighting.  I can do this as part of the standard calibration routine, but I recall that ...
  • Plenty of folks have commented on PR2018.1.1 slooow performance and brush lag (myself included) -- particularly when stacking a bunch of Filters and using a few masks. I'd suggest that you inform ...
  • After clicking on the Auto button --- Several "workflow" presets available to load the "first-step" filters you'll need for more refined work, and start you down the right path.
  • What works better than in PR 2018 ? New (or old) bugs to be fixed? On balance -- better or worse than prior release?
  • I agree with NRB -- no need to save in .psd format unless you really need to. Are you using latest PR?  I read somewhere that latest release provides a large reduction in .psd size.
  • Try the free viewer Faststone. Try the not-for-free On1 RAW 2018
  • Still missing something. You do not need to be a Plus member to get the latest (annual) release.  You can buy the release outright -- or not, as you choose.  So you pay for new features in a major ...
  • Not sure I understand how On1PR is a "subscription model" similar to LR.  With LR I believe you need to keep your subscription current to have access to the software.  With On1 you pay for a ...
  • I've been a user of On1 for the past couple of years and have been a loyal fan through their many ups and downs.  I generally think they are trying to build a better product, listen to the advice ...
  • All depends on your intent. I use FRV in initial culling primarily to check the dynamic range of my captures -- and  help to decide the "best" of a group of bracketed captures RD can certainly do ...
