During the processing of an image, we eventually convert it to sRGB colour space. Therefore it is important as a photographer, that the display device on which you are processing image should be able to reproduce the sRGB colour space. The ViewSonic VP2468 monitor I use for post processing can produce 99% of sRGB colour space which makes it ideal for a photographer. Colours come to life when you see the images on the VP2468. I can control the tonality in colours to be as natural as possible. This makes my life easier to present to my audience the emotions I went through while capturing an image.
In a real life scenario, it is the sRGB colour space that matters as nearly all display devices can produce colour only in sRGB. Here lies the value for money for the full HD VP2468. The VP2468 is at an excellent price point which makes it an excellent choice for photographers like me. The frame-less design does the job very well and my images look larger and fit my criteria very well. Auto pivot is a good functionality in case you want to have a full frame view of a vertical image. In case you are looking for a true photographer’s monitor, then go for the VP68.
