The photographic monitor
Photographers and amateur photographers don’t think twice before buying an expensive camera or professional lenses, but they often overlook an equally important component, the monitor. More and more often we hear about photographic monitors. But what are they? Do you really need one? Let’s be clear about it, in this review!
Why a photographic monitor?
In the world of photography and beyond, color management plays a fundamental role so that our works are displayed correctly regardless of the media used.
The monitor, therefore, is one of the most important tools we have at our disposal because through it we make crucial changes to our photos in post-production and today, thanks to the collaboration with BenQ, I have the pleasure of trying a monitor designed specifically for us photographers! This is BenQ SW271, which in fact has all the credentials to be called a “photographic monitor”. Let’s see them together!
How it looks like
The BenQ SW271 arrives home in a “huge” box, just think that the it weighs about 16 kg! Once you open the package you immediately realize how much care has been dedicated to the packaging, everything is perfectly in place, safely stored and protected by polystyrene to avoid any kind of problems or damage during shipping.

IPS and HDR
But its most useful feature is that you can switch between Adobe RGB, sRGB and Black-and-White modes at the touch of a button. The buttons can also be customized to set other modes such as quickly changing the calibration profile we created or changing brightness and contrast, an additional convenience for photographers.
