    Quick exports to the OLED phone look more comparable to the fast grades I do. So, that is a welcome improvement with the CG2420 over the CS2420. Not sure I would totally care about the upgrade in a none-pandemic world, but certainly simplifies things while doing my own post work and camera testing. I guess I'll have to see how it makes grades look going to the LCD laptop.

    Though I’m using a PD2500 BenQ and a 1st gen HP Dream Color (ducks, runs for cover).

    I’m an indie filmmaker on a tight budget though, not a colorist.

    So learning a lot here.

    Yeah, feel like we are all in a similar boat: indie film maker or DP needing to do some colour and post work on a reliable monitor, yet on a budget, and yet so little direct information online for that.

    I was very tempted by the HP Z27x G2 early on, as I was just needing a good monitor for the Pandemic, and I wasn't worried about the longevity of the colour accuracy. Which it seems that the main complaint about the Z27x or whatever was colour shift over time due to a sensor going bad.

    And I while maybe the Benq I got was bad, the tech seemed promising.

    Just that I was coming from a lot of cheaper monitors in my personal coloring work and kept running into issues. I'm actually shocked how much better my exports are on the first round now, even without calibrating the CG yet. With the CS my colors felt right, but occasionally ran into the shadow and black levels being an issue on OLED screens, nothing crazy though, just subtle stuff. But that all seems easier to just eyeball with the CG. Still have to watch the scopes and such.

    I ended up with the Eizo for lighter weight, 1:1 pixel in my 1080 workflow, and the 3-5min colour stability may be nice if I transition this to a set monitor, I can feel like I can trust it a little more in those on/off moves. Also, in a pinch, the onboard sensor can calibrate it if something seems really off in the field. The HP Z27x G2 just felt too heavy for small crew work, and I don't get paid for little bits of work I do at home, so having the option for a set monitor means I may get some rentals in the field. =/ who knows.

    Will be interested in your workflow.

    Honestly the dream color is such an awesome monitor I’ve graded things on that screen that has displayed on AMC’s screens that look in the theatre exactly how they looked on the dreamcolor

    There certainly is and I’ve used both the Z27X and the bigger Z32X

    With the Z32X and the Z27X you get to choose the color space you are working in and there are many flavors to choose from.

    It was certainly a lot more when it came out and honestly there wasn’t any need for it to come down in price because it’s really great but oh well the moment I saw the prices coming down I said “my gain” you have to actually try the monitor yourself to see what I speak of.
