For $50 on ebay and use the NEC Spectraview II software to calibrate. It does hardware calibration and work great. Didn't cost me too much money.

Maybe some year.

Sure some years. When MS stops supporting Windows 10 (which is 2025) I think I will get this one to run Windows 11

The best thing about film is your memories get better even if the pictures didn't.

How true. It’s like divorcing your wife because she tried to kill you but 20 years later you remember that she did make a really good pie. True, that was the one she put the poison in but it sure did taste good.

I recently picked up a computer monitor at Goodwill. The thing is super heavy and much more substantial than most ordinary monitors. Ends up it was meant to be used for design work, CAD and so on.

I’ve found that most of my photos are actually much sharper than the ordinary monitors led me to believe. I now believe what I’ve read about the Nikon 80-200 2.8 being “tack” sharp because it actually is. It captured every wrinkle, individual gray hair and liver spot on my face. Oh yeah...

I guess the moral of the story is don’t cheap out on your monitor. With a good monitor you might find that you don’t need that new super sharp lens after all.

Does it really matter when most people are viewing images on their phone, like I am doing now.
I like to show my images and that is why I post here, as well as on other sites.
I stopped printing years ago, and dragging people to my office computer is rude and impractical, so the phone or TV are the only viable options. Not many people watch MY TV.
The phone opens up so many options for getting you images looked at.
The young kids have it worked out, and so does this Septagenarian.

100% Adobe RGB is far from the largest color space. ProPhoto is larger and LAB is larger than that.

Where does DCI P3 lay in this mix of standards?

I guess if you are never going to want an image any bigger than a phone screen, then even an old 12” monitor would suffice. And I guess 6 mp camera would also suffice. Who needs lots of pixels when displaying a tiny photo?

You may be overlooking an opportunity. I print of lots of 8x10 or 8.5x11.5 family and kid images, put them into clear protectors and a 3 ring binder and give them to my kids. They love them. No real fancy poses, just impromptu photos, vacation pix, the kids at a playground and so on. The small kids love to gather around and see themselves as we flip through the pages. A memory card and tv is cool, but the binder can be taken anywhere and viewed at anytime. The old idea of a family album isn’t dead. Just ask my grandkids.
