New Mac Retina Displays vs, older flat screen

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Robert Peirce, Jul 14, 2012.

  1. Any first hand experience yet? I like the new displays but not the
    glossy finish. I currently have a 2007 MacBook Pro with a flat screen.
    It has been great but it's getting old. I work in a room with a lot of
    random light and I am afraid the reflections might be bothersome.

    The text on the iPad3 is significantly more legible than that on the
    iPad2, and photos show smoother edges as well (material designed for the
    older 1024 x 768 resolution really stands out!). Random light doesn't
    bother me too much (I tend to wear dark clothing) but you do need to
    avoid reflections of point sources.

    I don't use other Apple devices.

    Not first hand here but you might check over at comp.sys.mac groups, since
    they would be more spot on the subject.

    The vast majority of monitors have a high gloss finish, which I think
    inhibit my ability to handle shadow detail, possibly due to stray
    light. Within the next week or two I plan to actually look at the
    monitors available, rather than simply buy from specs and reviews.

    Have a look at the Dell Ultrasharp range. I have a U22410 (with a
    non-glossy screen) and am eminently happy with it. See

  6. This has specifically to do with photography. I don't mind the glossy
    screen otherwise.
