    Hey all,

    I have a macbook pro 2011 13" i5, im going to be shooting some film as in a movie soon and need to add a display to my line up, i could use my LG tv which has pretty good colours however my gf has somehow claimed a stack in the Alpha role for what i can and cant use so iv been told to use my own monitor despite the tv being mine.

    any suggestions apart from reclaiming my authority in ways that represent chuck norris?

    I would need a hdmi connection and around 22-24 inches, price preferably around £2-300

    With "shooting film" do you mean you will shoot photos on film or shoot a movie on film or that you will shoot a film on video?
    What is your budget and have you looked at the Dell Ultrasharp series, which has some IPS displays?

    Why would you "NEED" a HDMI connection? Anyway, for your edited budget this could work.

    cant find this in any uk shop? also says that theres a problem with hdmi connection which produces a letterbox style which means you lose screen space.. not really ideal? unless you have had different experience with hdmi?
