SW320 is the 32” color-managed monitor for the photographer with great real estate, 4K super resolution and the viewing hood. A good quality monitor for the photographer, SW320 is punch way above their weight in performance. It’s color managed, meaning one can calibrate the monitor, and when one’s printing, he can know for sure that, what he sees on screen, he can reproduce on the paper.
Sometimes it’s messy when copying files across memory cards and devices. Adrian’s tip will show you how to make sure your footage is all safe.
Do you know you can change the environment by controlling the light during your shoot? And what’s the “window” in the studio? Check out this episode of Adrian’s 20 Seconds Tips.

This is the second part of a tutorial, Pro Tips For Using BenQ Colour Critical Displays. For the first part, please refer to this link: Pro Tips For Using BenQ Colour Critical Displays (Part I) In this post I explain how to assign keys on the OSD Hotkey Puck, this will make swapping between Colour Modes very quick and easy. This is necessary because in our multitasking, interdisciplinary, world we often have to assess the tone and colour, in Colour Modes such as Adobe RGB (ARGB), sRGB, Rec.709, and HDR. If you haven’t read through part one this tutorial may not make sense, it would also help if you understand how to use BenQ’s Palette Master Software my full tutorial on Calibrating Colour Critical Displays can be found on this link: How to Set up the Workflow of Color Management
The aim of this Pro Tip Tutorial is to explain how you can switch between custom calibrated Colour Modes, principally between ARGB and sRGB using the OSD Hotkey Puck. Part One covered how to create Custom Calibrations, now I’ll explain how to assign those to the OSD Hotkey Puck.
Use the physical keys on your BenQ Colour Critical Monitor. Pressing any of those keys will open the On Screen Display (OSD), see Figure 01.

Don’t ever ignore the importance of calibrating your screen in photography. Always use calibrators to calibrate your monitor to ensure the color accuracy. Check the tip video from Adrian and he will tell you why.

BenQ SW271 27” Wide Gamut Adobe RGB UHD 4K HDR Monitor Review
In January of 2017 I reviewed BenQ’s outstanding SW320 31.5” 4K Wide Gamut Adobe RGB monitor for photographers. It offered groundbreaking performance at its price point (Read the Full Review). The SW320 review followed on the heels of my earlier review of the BenQ SW2700PT 27” Adobe RGB Monitor (Read the Full Review). Since my review of the SW320 BenQ has subsequently released the newer and slightly smaller SW271. The SW271 is a 27” 4K UHD monitor that utilises a 10-bit panel with 99% Adobe RGB, 100% sRGB colour space coverage as well as support for HDR content.
