Dell UltraSharp U2410 LCD Display; They Call It Premier Color…And It Is Page 2

Jill Rahn's picture

I have used the Dell U2410 to edit and process large digital camera image files, scans from dozens of slides, including E-6 and Kodachromes, as well as negatives. Each image was fully color corrected, adjusted, and edited, including cleanup and retouching, and I even took a spell to build a layered composite image from two slide scans in Photoshop. Having worked with the U2410 almost every day for some months now, I can say that if I had no other display available I would be quite happy and satisfied. The U2410 LCD display has all the essential qualities needed for color-managed digital photography computing and provides very good print matching between the screen image and an Epson R1900 on fine art paper. My conclusion has to be nothing less than exuberant that there is finally an affordable, full 24” LCD display that fully meets the needs of photographers in all dimensions of performance.

All the advantages of color slide and negative editing also apply to black-and-white images recorded on C-41 process black-and-white films like those from Kodak and Ilford. In fact, you can extend the useful image information by getting more tonal information in both highlights and shadows than you would typically, as well as automatic infrared cleaning that can be applied selectively.

Purchasing the Dell UltraSharp U2410 has been one of the best investments I have made for my digital darkroom. I obtained much more than I expected and paid less than I have for any of my pro-graphics LCD displays. One of the things I most appreciate is that this Dell display has more than proved a theory I have had for a long time about digital photography: if you can’t see all of what the image looks like on screen, you have little control over the results.

One of the most photogenic models I have had the pleasure of photographing booked an afternoon appointment in my studio. I shot the entire session with 35mm Kodachrome using window light. Most of the different setups from the session have been fairly easy to scan and color correct, but this shot with a striped mirror has always been difficult until this recent session using the Dell UltraSharp U2410 display. I was pleased to finally get the photograph to look as it should.

I first visited Las Vegas, Nevada in the 1950s when Sinatra and Friends could often be found at the Sands. But later on, after it became a kind of Disneyland, I could not stand seeing all the sad faces in the casinos. So I would take a camera and Kodachrome out on the streets late at night and make very long exposures while walking along. Actually they look most interesting as very large prints, but even small some of the abstract repetitions are fascinating. Being able to see all of the detail in every range of tone makes color correcting and editing much more successful.

A Shutterbug reader, Tracy

A Shutterbug reader, Tracy Valleau, e-mailed me, suggesting that I take a look at the 24” widescreen Dell UltraSharp U2410 LCD display with 1920x1200 pixel resolution. What makes it suitable for digital photography and professional graphics is its wide color gamut of 96 percent of Adobe RGB and the fact www.babul-ilm.com

Its 12-bit internal

Its 12-bit internal processing assures a smooth rendition of tones on screen. The screen is in a bezel and stand that is sturdy but light, with an excellent hermes outlet design that’s carefully manufactured. In all respects, this Dell U2410 is quite affordable at a list price of $599, while entirely competitive with more expensive brands favored for a color-managed digital photography workflow.
