[filmscanners] Re: Cleaning your monitor...



Shouldn't there be more ambient lighting around? I always thought that the
important thing was *not* to have any direct light falling on the monitor...
hence monitor hoods, etc... but it's not advisable to work in *near*
darkness as the CRT makes images look brighter than they actually are...
etc. etc... i work in a room with daylight.... as well as tungsten light...
but with no direct light falling on the monitor... meaning a tungsten light
source is always on to my upper right... the main problem is in looking at
the slides or prints one is trying to match... for that i use a light box
and/or a table lamp fitted with (as near to) daylight corrected bulbs.

Arthur, i realise your comment was ajoke... reply more directed at Anthony
:)

All the best...

Yes, this is exactly the same lighting I both take and view photographs
in.  Near darkness, with a small desk lamp to the side. ;-)

Oddly, they all come out looking very similar looking... Dark.
