Marcel van Oosten is an award-winning photographer and Ambassador for EIZO, Nikon, LaCie and Gura Gear.
"I am a lucky guy, because I’m sponsored by the best monitor manufacturer on the planet: EIZO. My monitor is one of the most important tools in my photography workflow, so I want to work with the best there is. Had their monitors not been of the highest professional quality, I would never have accepted the sponsorship - it’s as simple as that.
Two years ago I got myself the EIZO CG247X, an upgrade from my trusty CG245W. I needed a second monitor for my new office in South Africa and decided to - again - choose one with a relatively low pixel count: 1920x1080. I wrote an entire blog post on my reasoning, realizing that my choice was going against the trend of 4K and 5K monitors. You can still find that blog post on my website.
Earlier this year, Daniella (my wife) needed a new monitor for her video work, so I decided to get another CG247X. But then I realized that there was only one thing that I missed while working on the CG247X: a second monitor for my Photoshop tools. And that’s when I started thinking about the CG2730, my latest choice. You can see it in the image above - that’s my SA office.
EIZO makes the best monitors, which is why I choose to work with them. It’s like test driving a Ferrari - you can expect to be impressed."
