Photographer Nicholas Seaman talks about his new CG248-4K
Nick Seaman is a Suffolk based landscape photographer who captures stunning images, inspired by his local area. In 2018 he was commended in the Landscape Photographer of the Year awards and was shortlisted for the Outdoor Photographer of the Year.
He recently bought an EIZO CG248-4K so we caught up with him to see how he was getting on with it.
I started to look for a new monitor because I was keen to find a display that supported my screen to print process. I’d previously used sRGB capable displays which I felt were the weak point in my workflow, so I was in need of an upgrade.
After looking into two or three different brands, I decided that an EIZO was the best choice for me based on reviews, especially when addressing the uniformity of the display which was really important to me.
I decided on the CG248-4K and I’m now really happy with my work set up – I use it in conjunction with my Sony A7Rii, a Windows laptop and Canon Pro10s printer.
The built-in calibrator is genius and so easy to use. When I unpacked the monitor, I simply let the calibrator do its thing and the first target calibration was excellent. This automatic operation ensures that I get optimal colour and brightness whenever I use the monitor, all backed up by a 5-year warranty meaning that I can really rely on the technology.
The CG248-4K provides me with exceptional resolution and colour accuracy so I can really see the detail in my work. The biggest benefit for me is that my images print correctly first time, making my work process much more efficient.
