Photo & Video Editing Monitors??? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ | FilmMaker Buyers Guide

August 12, 2019

– Now there’s only a few things
that are guaranteed in life. One is death, two is at some
point your gonna get some wet socks and your gonna be miserable, but don’t worry you’ll get through it. You’ll eventually be able to
take them off and put some new dry ones on and feel much better. And three is that you’ll
eventually need to buy a computer monitor. So today we are gonna take the
time to learn the difference between a really great
monitor, and a monitor you just need to take outside to your
yard and just throw a ladder at it. (monitor crashes) (distant laughing) (monitor smashes) Don’t worry, this wasn’t
working in the first place. The display broke while we
were moving, so we decided to have a little fun before we recycled it. (laughs) (cool beat music) Alright, it’s time to come clean. Let’s all do it together, shall we? We all can admit that we
know less about monitors than we probably should. We spend all this time and
effort on cameras and lenses. And on the final steps of
touching up your photos or color grading, you’re
looking at it through a monitor and you’re not a 100%
sure how accurate it is. And color grading is a very
subtle art of just tweaking it in one direction slightly or another. But with the wrong monitor
you could be pushing it in the complete wrong direction. And then you send it over to
your client and they look at it and they woo! And I always found it very frustrating. I would color grade it on my
monitor, and then I would cast it to the TV in the living room, and it looks super magenta
so then I’ll make it so that it looks good on that screen. And all of a sudden it
looks terrible, super green on my phone. And I’m like what the (beep). And then a little while ago Asus hit me up and they were like, “Hey
you wanna try out our new ProArt monitors that are
specifically designed for photo, video, designers,
creatives like you.” And then I was like, “Ehh
I don’t know I already have another 4K external display, I don’t know if I need another one.” They were like, “Trust me
bro, you’ll love this.” So they shipped me this monitor. It’s a 32 inch ProArt series, and it is phenomenal. Now one thing I always find
interesting was that big professional Hollywood movies
they look good on projectors, they look good on TVs, they
look good on computer monitors, they look great everywhere. And I always kept thinking,
why am I having so much trouble making it look good on
more than just one screen. And what I’m realizing now is
that most consumer products aren’t perfectly calibrated. They’re shifted in one
direction or another. Sometimes they’re more
contrasty, sometimes they’re more saturated, sometimes
they shift more magenta, more blue, more warm. And like legit colors
will use super perfectly calibrated monitors so
that they’re kind of there in the center and each
monitor has like a slight deviation from it, but it
all generally looks good because it’s not like heavily
shifted in one direction or another. Opposed to before I realized
my computer monitor was heavily tinted green, and
that my TV in the living room was heavily tinted magenta, and I kept just doing these
circles around trying to find the center. And now that I have a truly
accurate monitor, I can just grade it exactly how I want it. In every little display
there’re slight variations, but nothing major. It’s all within the real of acceptability. So first of all, thank you
again Asus for sending me this monitor and showing me
what I’ve been missing out on, and also sorry I’ve been
call you A-Suhs my entire life. A-Soos, I’m pretty sure
that’s how you say it. A-Soos. Not A-Suhs. What kind of computer do you have? – It’s an Asus. – An Asus? Kerry’s had this laptop for six years, and been pronouncing it
wrong the whole time. So I don’t feel as bad anymore. (grunts) Alright, let’s start with the
most common types of panels that you’ll see when you shop. You’ll see TN and IPS. There’s a few others that
are more brand specific, but generally speaking we wanna
go with an IPS type display. Now TN panels are popular
because they’re less expensive to make and they also have a
very very fast response time. Now realistically most of us
can’t even tell the difference in lag between the TN panels and IPS, but there’s competitive
gamers out there that say that slight slight millisecond
of a difference actually matters to them. So TN panels tend to be
more popular for gamers. But they also have a
very bad viewing display. So if you slightly lean over
one direction or another you can start looking at an image that’s a little more contrasty. So we wanna limit as many of
these variables as possible. And also you’re gonna
find higher resolution in a IPS monitor, which this is. This has HDMI ports back
here so I can actually plug this camera into here. Would that be trippy, let’s find out. Ahh there we go. So check this out. Even when you’re looking at
this monitor from that much of an angle you’re still
generally able to see what this frame is, which is amazing. You don’t wanna do that but- IPS monitors are gonna be
able to show you much more beautiful, truer, richer,
higher resolution colors. So we could already narrow
down most of our results by cutting out TN panels
from our specific needs. Alright, so so far we
are looking for an IPS monitor. I’m writing this on fake ass wood. This is actually paper. Looking at all these clones
of myself is tripping me out. So let’s turn this off. There can only be one Potato Jet! Another thing you might
want to consider is if you’re trying to go for a
glossy or matte display. Some people prefer
glossy, because it looks generally prettier. But this matte texture
definitely helps kill a lot of reflections. So in my glossy display
I would have times where I literally have to
shift the monitor around or even tilt it down or up
to try to get rid of some glare that’s in the background,
because it’s like a mirror. You literally see every little detail. Opposed to matte, which
kind of defuses that so it’s much more pleasant to look at. And I feel like it’s much
easier and less stressful on your eyes to stare at all day. So I personally would
go for a matte display. Now the next obvious thing
is size and resolution. And those really go hand
in hand because you really actually don’t wanna
get too much resolution in a small display, because
it’s really inconceivable to your eye. And also you’re using more
processing power to display that 4K, so you’re really
just wasting energy from the computer. So generally speaking,
for smaller displays HD can be enough. Once you start getting into
the mid to high 20s you probably wanna get something like Quad HD which ads a little bit more
resolution on each side. But really, as videographers,
we’re so adamant about shooting in 4K these days. We might as well get a 4K display. So we definitely want that
4K resolution so we can see what we’re shooting. I mean even our iPhones are shooting 4K. But remember if the display’s too small you can’t even conceive that 4K. So you’re just putting extra
pressure on your computer. General rule of thumb for 4K displays is at least go 30 inches or more. This is a 32 inch. And that way you can
conceive all 4K resolution at that viewing distance. This is a 32 inch, and
it definitely seems a lot sharper than my old 4K
monitor which was a 27 inch. So even though technically they
may have the same resolution I look at this monitor I go,
oh this definitely is sharper and more resolution. But really it’s just because it’s bigger so I can actually conceive
all that resolution. Now next one is Aspect ratio, and I would actually go for 16 by nine The super wide displays are super sexy! They’re all curved and
they look really cool like you’re from the future. And I’ll admit, I get super
jealous every time I see one. But there’s a few reasons
why I wouldn’t get one. The main being the resolution. Sure they are 4K, but
4K is measured in pixels that are horizontal. So generally speaking,
4K super wide displays have the same number
of pixels horizontally, but it’s really just the
top and bottom sliced off of this. So I might as well just keep
those pixels and utilize that workspace. Now the argument I keep
hearing about super wide displays is that you can
stretch your timeline nice and wide, but for me
personally, on a 32 inch display this timeline is way more
than wide enough for me. And I personally like to have
my timelines nice and tall, because I do a lot of layering
and adjustment layers. And I also like to look at
the audio waveforms a lot. That kind of helps me
speed up the process. With this ratio, even
though with this timeline nice and tall I have a
nice big display up here and most of my videos, like
this one is done in HD. So technically as long
as my frame is utilizing at least a quarter of the frame, I’m actually seeing the
full HD resolution of it. And as I mentioned the
displays just kind of cut down the top and bottom so then
you’re working with less vertical pixels and then you have to shrink it down even more. So those super curved wide
angle displays, super awesome but not for me. Now let’s talk about colors. We want lots of colors and also accurate colors. Now some of you may be
familiar with eight bit color and 10 bit color on camera. Same thing with monitors. If you shoot 10 bit color
and you bring it into a standard monitor it
just kind of estimates. For example most monitors
have like a teal blue. But this would have every
little shade and variation of teal blue and show it
you a 100% accurately. And of course lots of
colors don’t matter unless they’re accurate. So the measurement Delta-e
is basically how close is what’s being displayed
to what it’s supposed to be. For example Delta-e of five is good, but these come
pre-calibrated with a Delta-e of less than two. Which is super accurate! And each one is literally
shipped with a calibration report just to give you that insurance that these have been through
some serious quality control and I love that. Now next up is the
brightness of a monitor. Most monitors hover around
the three to 400 range. But this goes up to a thousand. Super bright. And that’s a really nice
feature to have if your office, your studio is in a bright place, because I really do not like
sitting in the dark editing. Whenever I edit, I like
to open up all the windows and get this place nice and bright. And then I can just crank
up the brightness on this and it’s not an issue. So, I want it to be… Bright. I’m running out of space here. I started off really big,
and I slowly realized oh crap oh crap and now
I’m at the very bottom of the frame. We will also keep in mind
that even the best monitors slowly fall out of calibration over time. So no matter what you have, calibrate your displays. I just calibrated my laptop
for the first time in two years and I was like, holy crap. My old profile was way
off so I feel better now. Calibration tools aren’t super expensive, so definitely worth doing once in a while. Another thing you might
wanna consider is HDR. Especially with the growth of HDR content. Having a HDR capable monitor
can really future proof your monitor investment. ‘Cause typically you don’t
really buy monitors all the time. You usually get a good
monitor and it should last you a couple cycles of your computer. And then now there’s contrast
ratio, but there’s so many ways to measure contrast
ratio that it’s become one of those things that
manufacturers are always tryna kinda cheat the
numbers a little bit. Contrast ratio is basically
how bright is the brightest pixel compared to the darkest
pixel in the same frame? So this has a contrast
ratio of a thousand to one, and it’s good. But because of the different
ways of measuring it’s harder to judge how good a
monitor is by the number that the manufacturer provides. Another bonus thing to
have is a blue filter. This one has one built into
the display right here, and definitely don’t have it
on while you’re color grading. But if you’re editing a sequence, and it’s getting late, you’re
definitely gonna wanna pop this on, because blue light
basically tells your brain, “Hey it’s daytime, stay
awake, don’t go to sleep!” So with this on, just because
you’re editing late doesn’t mean you’re gonna spend
all night just like tweaking out of your bed. (chuckles) And finally, but not least and
this one’s kind of obvious. You want one with a cool design. It’s gonna be sitting on your desk, you’re gonna be spending a
lot of time looking at it. This one has a nice thin
bezel all around it. And my goodness, I love the way it looks. We can swivel very easily
a it can go up and down. Also more for photographers,
but you can always go vertical and who knows if
vertical video from like IGTV starts getting popular
we might start needing to do more in this vertical
display so you might wanna consider that. But yeah, there you go. This is the Asus ProArt 32 UC. It’s a professional monitor
so it is definitely higher up in that price range, but it should be one of
those things that if you were to buy it, it’d be a long-term investment. I don’t see a need to
upgrade any time soon, and it checks all off
all of these requirements for what I need in a monitor. So awesome. I’m gonna set this back
on my table and let’s read some comments. Fake wood. Real wood. So my last video was the
best $500.00 YouTuber camera. Canon M50 versus Panasonic Lumix G7. Let’s see what you guys had to say. Matti Haapoja says, “I
could watch you all day, wait is that creepy?” Yes, Matti. You are the creepiest guy I’ve ever met. (laughs) I’m just kidding, he’s super chill. Can you compare the Canon
M50 with a speed booster to an EOS R? And yes, I can do that. Let’s do it. I’m gonna put it on the
list of my 20 other videos I wanna do right now. I will try to get to it though. The Red Dragon versus Canon M50. I haven’t done a comparison
with the red camera in a little while, huh? I gotta get back on that. It’s just been sitting here,
just chilling, looking pretty. Actually I did just record
a video yesterday using it a whole bunch. But it’s a whole video about
how many setups you can do with just one light. It’s a lighting video so I
know they’re not super popular, but hopefully it’s a video
that’s very useful to a lot of you guys who only have one light. You guys don’t wanna do
the three point lighting or five lights at a- None of that stuff. One light and a reflector. That’s it, and how much can
you achieve with just that one in a little space like this. I love Canon auto focus system. Me too, like I can just get right up here. Focus on my face. And this isn’t even a native lens. This is a Tokina 2.8 lens and
even with after marking lenses it focuses so fast. Oh also a winner has been
chosen from the thousand dollar camera set up video that
we posted a few weeks ago. The winner was chosen randomly,
and the winner is Lucas so congratulations you’ve got a Canon SL2, a couple lenses, a the camera
bag, tripod, glide cam. All this crap coming towards you. And for the rest of you, don’t
worry, there’s still many things up for grabs like
a Canon M50, a Lumix G7, and a few more things coming up that I’m very excited about. So don’t jump off a cliff just yet, you can still win something
in the near future. So see you guys later. See ya! (slow chill music)

    I've been using an ASUS monitor on my PC for the last 8 years, and it has never failed me once. However, when I was shopping for newer IPS monitors, I noticed ASUS has pretty bad reviews on Amazon and other sites (usually 20% or more 1 star reviews)… This has made me want to look at LG and other brands. How has your experience been so far with this monitor??

    We got the idea from the first hit of the monitor. No need to pollute the environment to make that point. Anyway, you didn't mention 10 bit panel, and although you did mention color accuracy calibration, it was not related to any particular profile such as sRGB or Rec.709. I should hope this monitor is at least 90% of Adobe RGB.

    I'm a video engineer, and recommend & specify monitors for clients in industrial and broadcast television. The advice is pretty good, but some of the reasons may not be what you'd think. Back in the day it was CRT monitors, and as long as you got a monitor with the correct phosphors, you could adjust it to the correct color response using the old "blue bars" method. Today you need to make sure that your monitor is 100% capable of reproducing the color gamut and dynamic range that you work with, be it Rec.709, Rec.2020, DCI P3, Adobe or whatever. Let's look at the points one by one:

    IPS – OLED is still alive and kicking, but IPS is best for LCD.
    Wide Angle – (that's a matter of personal choice)
    Matte – That's a good start, but lighting design in your edit suite should be designed to keep glare to a minimum to begin with. Because most standards use the same 6500 Kelvin white point, paying some attention to this in your room lighting (at least in the backdrop, which should be 50% gray referenced to 6500K) with regard to colorimetry can save you a lot of frustration when calibrating the monitor itself.
    4K UHD / 32" – I put these together because this is the current dividing line between monitors that can and monitors that can't do professional colorimetry. You might be able to snag a QHD 27" screen that's 99% of what you need to save a few bucks, but for a long term investment you're better off making 32" and UHD your floor. If you work in true DCI resolutions, then you can decide if greater than UHD is worthwhile, but for the rest of us it's the point where the monitors start coming with more 100% color gamut certifications and self-calibration tools w/ the ability to store 3D LUTs internally for the calibration.
    Aspect Ratio – (that's a matter of personal choice)
    Lots of colors / Accurate colors – Although more is better, you could spend a whole lot of money trying to get 100% of Adobe RGB color space. If all you do is publish ephemeral 8-bit web videos, that's like burning $100 bills. The color space of most computers is sRGB, which is similar (but not identical) to Rec.709, so a computer monitor that's 100% Rec.709 compatible is also 100% sRGB compatible. All computer monitors use sRGB color space, not all use all of sRGB color space, so you'll never see a "100% sRGB compatible" label. If you produce video content for computers, the Internet or broadcast TV, you'll want 100% Rec.709 to get the full color gamut that sRGB and Rec.709 share. If you shoot / edit TV content, choose Rec.709 for your final cut. Same thing for DCI and Rec.2020. I presume that people who make movies that are shown in theaters on digital cinema gear know what settings to use, and those who know that their content is going straight to OTT also know and don't need to be told.
    Bright / HDR / Contrast Ratio – These are all versions of the same thing. Yes, a brighter monitor is useful in a brighter room. Brightness is also what gives you greater dynamic range (because once you hit black there's no extension that way), and "contrast ratio" is just a way of expressing dynamic range in numbers. If you're making HDR content, read the relevant standard(s) for your medium and choose a monitor that meets the HDR standard that you work with.
    Blue filter – There are better ways to maintain healthy sleep patterns. If you're spending all this time and money to get accurate color reproduction, don't throw it all away with some trendy feature! Stop working well before bedtime. If you work at an office, include the drive home and any other stimulating activities as "work." Give yourself plenty of time to wind down before bed. Adjust the color balance of your ambient lighting to help you wind down and promote sleep; I use Hyperikon CRI90+ 2700K LED bulbs inside and out for this purpose, and I keep them really dim after dark. Don't use personal devices like cellphones and tablets before bedtime, and abstain from alcohol because while it may knock you out, it interferes with sleep. If you must, create a separate LUT or color profile on your computer to limit the brightness / blue level of your monitor.
    Design – (that's a matter of personal choice)

    Great video and took note on the must have list for my buying guide in my search of an all around IPS 24"-27" 1440p Video editing/gaming possibly with G-sync budget monitor. I only wished that you included a list of suggested monitors in different budget brackets. Even if you have not tested them but agree with the specs. Plenty of videos covering Gaming monitors. Many covering Video Editing but cant find any all around Gaming and Video Editing suggested budget monitor videos. Keep up the great job.

    I would've been interested to hear about how well the monitor handles faster pans. I've noticed that my 4K computer monitor (Samsung U32J59X) makes most pans (that I shoot in 4K) look so choppy that I was beginning to think is was my drone and camera that were malfunctioning. Not to mention thinking it was all my fault for panning too fast.
    Yeh I got the new driver for my graphics card (GTX 1060) and also a new display cable. I even messed around with the refresh rates. Last week I bought a new TV (Sony KD 55A8F) and I was blown away with how well it handled the panning. My drone and camera panning is fine.
    So in short, I'm thinking of doing the ladder thing to my current computer monitor and getting something than can process 4K video fast enough to deliver smooth pans. Any chance you can shed some light on this issue?

    Hmmm. Trust me, ultra wide is awesome for editing. Well, I guess it depends on your background. I've been an editor for… well, let's just say I remember playing to BetaSP tapes, and I've always had 2 monitors. 1 monitor just isn't enough, even if it's 16:9. When I got a system for home I decided to go with an ultra wide. It. Is. Awesome. Dual monitors without the break in between, but still treat it like it's 2 monitors. Bins/audio sliders/effects editor etc. on the "left monitor", timeline & Source/Rec on the "right monitor" (an imaginary line dividing the screen in 2). Then, I'd get something like a 27" running off a BM output card and use this sort of monitor as a "broadcast" monitor, ie. the one that's colour accurate for colour grading etc. Which is basically why I'm looking at this review right now, to do a little research into grading monitors. But yeah. From my experience, the monitor real estate is still worth getting an ultra wide + a 2nd colour accurate monitor, if you have the desk space & money 😉

    Hi, i am very confused now. i know you mentioned about IPS panel. but what about 28" UHD Monitor with Quantum dot (UH75)??
    it has 1bil colors, 10bits, 157ppi, 125%SRGB!!! i am not a pro photographer but i have been editing photos for 10years now.
    Could you please make a suggestion about this choice? is it bad idea? anyone? THanks!!

    Small thing about colors. Color depth and Color space are NOT the same thing. While spaces like Adobe RGB is a wider gamut than sRGB, the amount of colors are the same as they are 8-bit spaces.

    I have a LG 27UL600 4K monitor, IDisplay for calibration and am a Hobbyist Photography. If I set my white point to 6500K, Gama to 2.20. What contrast ratio works best for publishing photos on the internet. The LG 27UL600 has a 'Black Stablizer' control that let's you set the Black Saturation point. I've searched the Internet and not finding the answer I need. Thanks

    Sadly I bought this monitor after watching your review and have been nothing but frustrated. QC is crap, came with a single dead pixel on it. Looking past that trying to get it calibrated I keep getting an error saying that it could not download the data to the monitor so it would not calibrate. The monitor looks amazing but for $1100 these problems should not exist. I am getting another in the mail tomorrow and I will go from there but as it stands, I will probably be returning this for something better for the money. Awesome review but I am truly disappointed with this product so far.
