    When you look for a model # not every Ultrasharp or even every Eizo does it. You what IPS, yes and you also want a higher percentage of colour gamut with Adobe RGB like 98% etc ... The nice Eizo has a pop out color calibrator that comes out and folds out and calibrates itself hardware-wise without software installed.

    If you want 4k it is expensive.

    You're in Wellington - Wellington Photographic Supplies (Vivian Street) branch call them and ask to speak to Alistair. He goes around and calibrates others computers including the Wellington City Council.

    But hey many pro's seem to be using Mac screens thou they are not the best - depends what the client wants ....

    The Dell UltraSharp U2412M Screen LED-Lit Monitor is highly regarded and widely used for photography in the US. Available from Dell NZ for $449 with 2 to 5 days delivery.

    Interesting hypothesis, Nomad, 'colour gamut with Adobe RGB" may well be desirable, but how much of it is the difference discernable to the even the above average eye??

    I dunno, haha. I've heard people who have had to reprint stuff and make minor adjustments - they had work exhibited or applied for honours at PSNZ. I think it allows you to see more micro content like subtle light changes or tones so they are over blocked in shadows or highlights blown out. I've just went with a $1k 24" 1080 Dell Ultrasharp. But then one would need to be a lab that uses colour management or your own printer that has a custom profile for the paper and not just the profiles you download off the net (ie Epson / Canon).

    For snapshots probably not a worry.

    Prob things for like weddings when you have white dresses and black tux, soft gentle window light, food photog and etc.

    I'd go with a Dell Ultrasharp. If that's not in the budget, something like this - https://www.pbtech.co.nz/product/MON...-Monitor--2560

    Not quite as accurate for colour reproduction, but it's not too bad.

    p.s. No monitors come very well calibrated stock, so if thats what you're looking for then its worth getting some kind of automatic calibrator.

    another +1 for a Dell Ultrasharp. You just need to be careful which one you get. Some are not wide-gamut even though they are IPS monitors.

    Eizo are definitely the top of the line or the top 2 certainly. Edge to edge consistency. The pro labs and certified digital Ilford printery outfits use Eizo of which there are only 2 or 3 in NZ. You won't find any Dells in photography stores.

    People like Peter Eastway (National Geographic) use Eizo. Together with his $50k USD Phase One digital medium format set up.
