  • For 27" you likely want a little bigger the next step up is 31.5" viewable. Not all 32" are 4K. On the front page here there was a 32" QHD Philips with a wide gamut but only HD for a very good price. ...
  • I agree, the real question is not which of the top quality monitors out there, but if going to 4K or more is the best solution. Getting used to $k or more takes some time. Text display size is ...
  • I cannot see why photographers would not need a wide gamut monitor. Like putting blinders on a horse so you cannot see past limiting vision. The further development moves to high contrast vivid ...
  • As good as means screen uniformity, black point, deviation, screen finish, hood quality, contrast ratio and levels, etc. I don't have nor do many have the devices necessary to measure screens ...
  • Nice to see good quality products coming down in price. That said you'd be best to seriously consider what features on the BenQ SW2700 are worth and there you'll find accessories like the hood,...

  • There certainly is a price jump to a 4K monitor. I just wrote my user review on the BenQ SW320. IT seems to me to be by far the best deal. They are quite different though than an HD, some will love...

  • If you look at Tom's hardware reviews you'll find BenQ editing monitors as good as any other. The software called Palette Master is part authored by a maker of devices, yet a open to two device ...
  • You indeed should read all reviews for good and bad. Not any one device can cover all bases. For photographers and video editors the wide gamut monitors are the better choice. For gamers they need ...
  • I knew when Phase One sent an email reminder that they were about to update. With them always the same thing, forced upgrades. The email said you are at the end of the line, you must upgrade from...

  • What i don't like about Phase One is their way of making forced upgrades almost yearly rendering your functional license obsolete. If you change camera you are forced to update, even though the...

  • Martin, I have a new iMac 5K and the SW320. The iMac is lovely but colour is not as reliable as the 10 bit monitor at 14bit correction. While the iMac is good enough if you want true pro level...

  • i wrote my review by hand yet to be typed into text. Agreed; the comfort offered by the 32" ( actually 31.5") gives a bit extra space between your monitor (s). That said the 320 takes up so much...

  • I have the 100D SL1 as a back up to my 5D3. i use it professionally. When the same lens is mounted, the image quality is quite similar albeit a difference of the smaller sensor. With Dual Pixel it...

  • At least this offers a solution for some. When i was researching the best monitor solution for a Sony and or other an external IPS monitor was the easiest solution. I have Apple, yet other have a...

  • Commented on article Canon EF 35mm F2 IS USM gallery

    I have this and love it for its light short factor, and works extremely well on a gimbal ( Crane V2). For stills the really pronounced vignette is automatically corrected in Lightroom, yet video is...

  • It is okay but could be better. For an amateur or someone wanting just to do some glass products with labels it is a decent start.
    Once past lots of details can be improved, yet that is the scope...

  • I had looked at these Nikons and others. They promise a lot, but the image quality is so sub par. They have improved many details yet the IQ is not going to be great.

  • Very true. Colour consistency is thanks to Profoto and or Broncolor R&D, patented, and the real difference. I don't want to think that technologies are only reverse engineering, rather the...

  • I finally got the 85mm 1.8. Specialised in beauty and portraits, the 100mm macro both versions are as good as it gets for light fast optics for close ranges. Recently forcing myself to use the 85mm. ...
  • As much as I like the top brands equipment, I am going away from Broncolor and loving the very useful Godox AD600. The super light weight remote head extension allows boom mounting or hand held...
