Looking for a monitor

That was in the mix. I gambled on a newer 1200 monitor by Asus. It was cheaper and has the calibration ability and was cheaper. The problem was there were no reviews. It turned out to be a good choice so far.

After hours of review and taking into account your comments I decided an a new unreviewed ASUS ASUS ProArt Display PA248QV. it appears this was released in March or April, 2020. As it turns out my graphics card won't handle more than 60 mHz anyway. A 27" screen seems like overkill for me.1080 on a 24" screen would be a major improvement. This is 1200 and 16:10. We will see how that works. Funny after hours of looking I chose one without much of a track record. Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't. Thank you for your help!

The 27" Dell was one of the ones I had tabbed especially with the sale price. The Dell ultra sharps were ranked high by various sources. The BenQ's are also highly rated. I have to narrow it down and you guys are helping!

Thanks FozzFoster. Those are important considerations. I was somewhat concerned about the 60 Hz refresh rates and also slow response rates. You help put my mind at ease with your comment. I have been fortunate to find 10 bit depths in my price range. I am leaning toward 2k around $300. A Benq 4k just came on sale at the same price. I will compare the features you mentioned.

I am looking for a new monitor. Any monitor will be an upgrade for me and it will have multiple daily uses. Photo editing will be one of the uses but not the main use. i want to limit my spending to under $400 and probably a 27". I have read a lot about the 4k scaling issues. I am looking for opinions on 4k vs 2k for all uses. It seems 4k would be better for photo editing but may not be for daily use, especially with a 27". I am not a gamer and my other uses are generally internet (especially newspapers) and pdf views. I do a tremendous amount of photo viewing and some editing especially this time of year when I am photographing flowers. My viewing distance is generally around 2 1/2 to 3 feet. This forum is always a huge help when it comes to making purchases. Thank you .

K2 Thank you very much for comments. I was prone taking these shots. I did the diopter adjustment. I mus t have hade the wrong shutter speed. I thought it was 160. But there were lots of different speeds,ISO’s , and apertures. None were as clear as I would of liked. I later found the U2 macro setting has easy focal point adjustments That feature will be handy. As I advance I will try external lighting. His was very spontaneous as I was dressed to visit my mother. Ended up late and had to change my clothes from crawling on the ground. Thanks again for the in-depth review. I will read the articles and try auto focus You are a big help.

Just playing with my new KP I happened across this lovely creature. This was in the Macro U2 setting. Manual Focus. The color was very slightly changed with the auto level in After Shot. The second one is straight out of the camera.

Any suggestions for improvement would be welcome. I am not real pleased with the clarity. I experimented with different apertures and various ISO's with mixed results.

Hate to ask this but I want to be certain which cable connector to use for the KP to computer...I was surprised my new KP is cableless :lol:. My K7 cable doesn't fit. I am suspecting Micro B but I want to be certain. Thanks If I missed this on another thread I apologize.

They are both 800. The second one highlights the light areas. The first one darkens them. It seems that is the reason for the graininess. This is from a K-7 which gives a partial explanation. Couple that with the "enhancement". Thanks for your comment. It is helpful.

I took these while standing out on the tiny balcony at the Sheraton on the Falls. The storm was near Buffalo. A couple of lucky shots.
