Best Monitors for Photographers

Best Monitors for Photographers – For all digital photographers, a well-calibrated and accurate computer monitor is an indispensable tool for a solid practice. Regardless if you like to print your photos or share exclusively online, a monitor that you can trust will make a big difference in how anyone views your photographs, yourself included. Besides just helping to achieve accurate colors and contrast, a finely tuned monitor is also more enjoyable to work on and contributes to a seamless all-around workflow.

1.Dell Ultrasharp 27″

Features



OUR TAKE

The U2719D is similar in design to that model, the Editors’ Choice-award-winning Dell 27 USB-C Monitor (P2720DC), as well as to many other Dell business monitors from recent years. That means it is both stylish-looking and utilitarian, as well as feature-rich. Factoring in the stand, the monitor measures 15.4 by 24.1 by 7.1 inches (HWD) and weighs 18.8 pounds.

The 27-inch in-plane switching (IPS) flat panel has a native resolution of 2,560 by 1,440 pixels, known as QHD or 1440p, at a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. Its pixel density of 109 pixels per inch (ppi) is fine for general-purpose use and basic photo editing. (All else being equal, the greater the pixel density, the sharper the image should be.)

2.LG 34UM68-P

Features



OUR TAKE

The 34UM68-P 34″ 21:9 UltraWide FreeSync IPS Monitor from LG features an ultra-wide display that’s suitable for both work and play. For work and multitasking purposes, an ultra-wide display lets you have multiple windows side by side, or one large window where you can see all the details. On the other hand, gaming on this monitor will feel more immersive as the large screen takes up most of your field of view, putting you right in the middle of the action.

With a 2560 x 1080 resolution, the 34UM68-P provides you with crisp and clear pictures. It is constructed with an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, which has wide viewing angles and immersive colors. Combined with a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 300 cd/m² brightness rating, 8-bit color support, and a 5 ms response time, you’ll be able to enjoy vivid, lag-free content reproduction with darker blacks and brighter bright colors.

3.ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV

Features



OUR TAKE

The ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV is a very good budget-friendly monitor that’s intended for creative professionals. Its superb ergonomics, high peak brightness, and wide viewing angles make it a good fit for nearly any type of workspace. It comes with good color accuracy out-of-the-box and it has an excellent SDR color gamut; however, it can’t display a wide color gamut and doesn’t support HDR.

It has impressive gaming performance despite its professional-looking design, as it has a fast response time, Adaptive Sync support, and a 75Hz refresh rate that makes fast motion look just a bit more fluid. Unfortunately, it has a low contrast ratio and mediocre black uniformity, which is expected of most IPS panels. On the bright side, it provides a generous number of USB ports and even has a pair of built-in speakers.

4.Celicious Privacy

Features



OUR TAKE

Confidentiality is a human nature; however our laptops expose this when in public. Curiosity from wandering eyes is undoubtedly uncontrollable. People sitting beside you or passing by tend to intentionally and unintentionally take a quick peek at your screen for many reasons. Privacy Plus for Dell Latitude 13 7300 (Non-Touch) is a 4-way privacy screen protector that helps protect sensitive information from prying eyes by narrowing the viewing angle so that the screen is only visible to individuals directly in front of the screen.

This is achieved via the embedded micro-louver technology that blacks out the screen at an angle of 4 degrees either side of the lit display without blurring or image distortion. It is engineered to offer privacy for when your laptop is viewed from either a portrait or landscape orientation. Privacy Plus adheres firmly to the screen with its advanced silicone based adhesive backing offering a smooth glossy surface. The pack includes a privacy screen protector for Dell Latitude 13 7300 (Non-Touch) and an application kit.

5.Acer R240HY bidx

Features



OUR TAKE

It also lacks VESA-mounting capabilities. The 1,920-by-1,080-resolution IPS panel has a non-reflective coating and a peak brightness of 250 nits.

Along the bottom edge of the panel is a strip of glossy-black trim that holds five function buttons and a Power switch, and around back are an HDMI port, a DVI port, and a VGA port, as well as a headphone jack. As with many midrange monitors, the R240HY lacks USB ports and speakers.

It’s also missing a DisplayPort input. Picture settings are basic and include Brightness, Contrast, and Blue Light adjustments, along with the usual analog (Position, Focus, and Clock) settings. You won’t find any advanced settings, such as the 6-Axis-Color and Gamma settings that you get with the Acer H257HU. Picture presets include User, ECO, Standard, Graphics, and Movie modes.
