Ok, one of the things that often amuses me, not just on this forum but others as well (such as Birdforum photography section), is how many people have switched to flat panel monitors but rather than getting the correct ones (yes meaning pricy), they got what they could afford. They don't realize that stanard TN panel monitors cannot produce accurate colors very well. They especially have issues producing true black. As in they can't produce true black. These monitors are back-lit so black cannot exist in their displays.
For photographers, this can often result in inaccurately produced colors and contrast in images. Basically if your flat panel monitor is under 500 or 600 dollars, it's most likely a TN. Not only this, but most people do make two critical mistakes with their flat panels; 1. They often leave it set at the default settings it came with. These settings are for displays in stores with bright lights. Viewing photos on these can make them look bright and glaring. Post processing on them can make it look fine the the artist but rather dark to those with CRT or good flat panels, yes I see lots of this. The 2nd mistake made is that most people do not calibrate their monitors so the colors remain way off.
I still use a CRT because 1. it still works great and 2. I cannot afford a good flat panel yet. There was a comment made of one of my photos a while back that there wasn't a single black pixel in the shot. I saw black. Mostly in the shadow areas because the other colors had no black in them. I saw black though. I can't help but wonder what type of monitor that person was using (I cannot remember who it was now).
Anyway, what type of monitors are the artist of NikonRumors using? If a flat panel is it a cheaper TN or something better? If a flat panel, have you calibrated it?
