The first thing I always ask people when they ask me to comment about their photographs is, “is your monitor colour calibrated?”. And as expected, their replies are usually “calibrate what?”.

So if you are reading this, is your monitor colour calibrated (for photograph viewing and editing)?? No? Why should you?

There is nothing more important a properly colour calibrated monitor is to a photographer than anything else.

What is Monitor Colour Calibration?

There are more than a handful of manufacturers producing computer monitors in the market. And every manufacturers makes a few models and sizes. Every single model will produce different brightness, contrast, and colour reproduction. Even the same model from the same manufacturers from different production runs will not give you the same brightness, contrast, and colour reproduction!

If you have just decided to join in the photographer’s club, well it is much easier now with digital. You don’t have to worry about having the wrong speed film in your body when going indoor or having the wrong temperature for the wrong lighting.¬†Even the ‘prosumer’ cameras can take breath-taking pictures!
My first digital camera was actually a prosumer Fujifilm FinPix 4900. You can read its review here at dpreview.

DSLR or Compact Prosumer?

I paid SGD$1,400 for it at Harvey Norman, only to find out that you can buy it for less than SGD$1,000! What a ripped off!
