Sponsored: Mark Galer’s experience at CP+ 2019 Japan with BenQ
CP+ 2019 hosted its annual Camera and Photo Images Exhibition in Yokohama, Japan. The convention showcased the latest photography products and technologies during February 28 to March 1, 2019.
The convention provides amateur photographers and professionals information on the latest gadgets, demonstrations and workshops. At this year BenQ booth, BenQ focused on its Colour Accurate product line, including its soon-to-be released, PD3220U, a wide colour P3 monitor to assist Mac-Users and the “Accurate Colour on The Go™” (‘ACOG’) system.
To accompany the SW240 Colour Accurate Monitor, BenQ has been developing an ACOG system since August 2018.
The system includes a Hard Carry Case, Soft Case, Battery Pack, Soft Shading Hood and Tripod Mount. The ACOG system ensures easy transportation and set up, and the ability to shoot and immediately assess focus and colour of your work while you’re in the field or in the studio.
While BenQ are still refining the ACOG system further, BenQ Australia invited Jeremy Daalder, owner of Image Science and Mark Galer, Sony Global Imaging and Adobe Ambassador, to join BenQ Australia’s team in Japan to conduct field-testing on the latest revision of ACOG system with the BenQ’s SW240 Colour Accurate Monitor, to see if it meets their expectations.
According to Mark, “It certainly makes a huge difference to be able to use a full-size high-resolution colour-accurate monitor to be able to discuss the creative concept, composition and final editing using Lightroom and Photoshop CC, rather than having numerous creatives standing around a small laptop screen (or even worse – the back of the camera).”
The below images were taken by Mark in Yokohama with the assistance of BenQ’s SW240 Monitor and ACGO system.
As a Sony Global Imaging Ambassador, Mark was also keen to visit the Sony stand to see the newly announced FE 135mm F/1.8 lens that was on show for the first time. According to Mark, "Sony’s stand was perhaps the biggest at CP+2019 and Sony provided a shooting station and two models so attendees could try out their new 135mm f/1.8 GM lens."
