Sweer Posted July 12, 2017 Share Posted July 12, 2017 Hello Damien, I have just read your article about calibrating small gamut monitors. Great article and it answered a few of my questions. I still have one question. What is considered as small gamut monitor? Low sRGB numbers? I am also in need for some advice on what to do in my situation. At the moment I am taking up photography from a hobby to earning some income. During a event I need to submit photos. Those photos are edited using my laptop, lenovo ideapad 700. The screen on my laptop is not really quite bad at showing colors. It's laking qute abit of red and some blue. From reviews the screen only shows about 52% sRGB. At this moment I am using my laptop for my main job and photography. To try and resolve my screen color issue I found a few options: 1. Buy a screen calibrator and try and use the current screen but from your article this is probably not a very good fix as my screen has low gamut. 2. I found compatible screen which I can replace on my laptop screen which has 74% gamut but I am not sure if this is high enough. Also found another screen which has 92% gamut but at the moment cant find stocks. 3. Buy an external screen. This option would be a good option if I get to edit pictures at home. But I would be submitting 80% of the pictures right after an event. Unless I bring my screen to the event but it's probably too much of a hassle. 4. Buy a Macbook. I decide to buy one I would use it exclusively for photo editing and at this point in time I think it could be too much of an investment as I dont earn that much from photography yet. I am leaning towards option 2 and a screen calibrator. Sorry for the long post. Im looking forward to your input. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
