"Switching to an EIZO monitor had a massive impact on my workflow. I tend to make visually dark images, so maintaining shadow detail can be a challenge. I found adding the EIZO to my workflow meant much better control over colour and shadows, and fewer surprises when printing. It's definitely shortened my edit-print-adjust cycle. I appreciate that colour and tone are uniform from corner to corner, and the automatic calibration means one less thing to do. I wasn't expecting my eyestrain to be lessened when I switched, but the difference was noticeable."

“I tend to invest even more in my production monitors than my computers because the monitor is the window into my creative world. I don’t hold back when it comes to the quality of my images, no matter where they are displayed.”

"Working on an Eizo monitor I can bring out details in my images I couldn’t usually see... my images now feel more complete. I am now re-editing my whole catalogue, the difference I get in the colours are amazing, even the black and white and the shadows. It's a game changer”
"The EIZO is so sensitive to changes in colors, even a minute setting or a +1 move on the adjustment slider is displayed clearly and accurately. Having such an accurate wide gamut monitor also enables soft proofing to be done effectively before making the print."
"The quality of monitors directly affects the accuracy of how the digital image is rendered. To draw a parallel using more familiar terms, having an inaccurate monitor in a photography workflow is akin to trying to sing a song without the ability to hear yourself properly. The result is normally quite terrible. I give clients the best by using only the best ."
"People think they are saving money by having a cheap monitor, but in the end they're not. Ink, time and fine art paper is not cheap. In this business you have to embrace technology. If you can minimise your wastage factors, that's where your profit is."
