Thanks to BenQ Middle East for giving us a chance to feel and experience the new BenQ SW Series Monitor designed for Photographers and Cinematographers like us. As of now we are Mac users from video editing and even on photo retouching, we are using these machines since we started our photography business. We are using it because the quality of colors from the monitor is really stunning (in our own opinion — ).
BenQ representative gave us a call if we are ok to try their new product which is the 27 inches BenQ Monitor (SW Series), they said it is a photographer monitor. So we gave it a try. First impression was hmmmm, I thought it was a good competitor of the Mac Monitor but less expensive.
I have my Macbook pro early 2014, I tried to connect to it using thunderbolt connector (including on the package) as my second monitor and the result is stunning as it has the same feel with Mac. The colors and quality were the same. This was a good buy for a photographer and cinematographer like us. Here some of the photos of the BenQ SW Series:
- 27”W 2560×1440 QHD Resolution
- 99% Adobe RGB with IPS technology
- Hardware Calibration with accuracy color
- Palette Master Element color calibration software
- Black-and-White photo mode
- Shading Hood / OSD controller
