New Monitor

Hello Everybody,

Me first post on here

OK my budget is around 2500 to 3000 for a new monitor

I do wedding photography and portrait work so looking for some guidance

I currently have 3 macs and 2 of them are iMacs and one MP

What I need is help to what to choose

I like 27"plus monitor to replace 24" old dell

what should I look at

I shoot only in RGB

THX

Matt

Re: New Monitor

Matt, welcome to RetouchPro. There have been a number of similar recent threads on monitors with lots of good recommendations from Andrew Rodney, RP member and well known color expert. Just plug monitor into the RP search engine and that should provide you with some good info.
Regards, Murray

Re: New Monitor

LaCie makes nothing really, rebranded stuff. I just worked on location with a fellow with TWO of the LED 30” displays which cost big bucks. The software for calibration was pretty awful. Had to contact tech support, it was a process but once I got through, the person was helpful. But overall, not impressed.

Eizo is great but I’ve yet to see or hear why its any better for the extra money over the SpectraView. Depending on the model, they are much more costly.

So for me, NEC is the deal.
