    hey all Im curious as the pros and cons of using my 50 panasonic hd tv for my monitor while Im doing editing. Yeah I know who has a plasma still get with the program and get a LED. 1 word answer to that "WIFE" Im lucky she hasnt tried to sell my camera yet....
    The computer I would be pluging in and editing through is my Macbook PRO 13 inch....hence why I want to use my tv and I would be using LR3.6 for editing...

    Plasma's typcially have better 'blacks' than LCD, but unsure of LED sets. I play back my pictures for the family to view on our 50" plasma and they look exceptional.

    thanks CM for the input. I gave it a shot tonight and i kinda like the feel of only needing a mouse and being able to sit back and make the changes on the big screen.

    I do not believe a Plasma TV will be a wise choice for editing if you are looking for color accuracy, although it may work it won't be best.

    Can you calibrate it? I know my TV can be calibrated, but I don't know if that's pretty standard or what...
