Here's mine:

Image

Just a touch different from Greg Darcy's environment. Mind you, it may not stay as tidy as this. I just moved up from downstairs a few weeks ago, having first painted the walls grey.

Steffen's workspace in this thread is on the left monitor and that maybe gave me the idea to use the fisheye which I've corrected back to roughly rectilinear. I combined three images for the tonal range - I also tried HDR for the first time but it didn't work as well as doing it manually.

22" CRT and 26" LCD NEC monitors; XRite Pulse devices under the white cloth; APC for blackout and surge protection; portable backup hard drive hidden under one of the monitors; printers and scanner in the wardrobe; daylight fluoro in the desk lamp for primitive print evaluation (I usually have the overhead light off and the curtain shut).

Regards,
Murray

Its certainly been worse than that, studying for exams leaves notes and text books everywhere, plus the usual business cards and stuff makes it worse!!

I so miss having a study with a proper workstation/desk in it, then having a fat lcd and desktop pc sitting on it. These laptops just don't feel the same! They're cool for taking photos around to the relatives especially those that live overseas but besides that they're a pain in the ass. Hmmmm.....I still have my leather workstation highback chair somehwere in storage. Will have to get it out one day! Think I'll go off to the Dell website and drool at some desktop pcs.

I could never go back to single screen now, love having two screens, considering another 32inch, or a 40 inch, to go with my other one.....

I think im going to struggle to get my xbox, as well as camera gear, a 40 and a 32 on my desk, especially considering the state it is generally in, but we'll see what happens

I'll have to get a pic of my workdesk on here sometime soon. I only have a single 17" ACER coupled to my custom built Athlon X2 (939pin) system, add the Samsung colour laser multifunction and I have no room for anything else. BTW Doctor, was that an older Compaq laptop on your desk in the first picture?

Touch of deja vu there Cameron.

I also have an Acer V771 17" CRT coupled to a self-built Athlon X2 socket 939 system with a mid range AGP card. It does everything I want it to so I keep resisting the urge to go the upgrade route. When I got my K20D from DCW last year, the guy who served me had recently left a professional photo processing mob who were still using, by choice, 21" Pro CRT monitors.

The only upgrade I still consider is the CPU which is a 3700+ San Diego core. I can go to a 4800 on my board. Where to get a good one that hasn't been overclocked to the max is the problem.

My only disappointment is the WinFast DTV1000 tuner card which has never really worked.

Cheers

Kevin

I have a 4200+ (not sure which core though) coupled with a Nvidia 6200 Turbocache GPU (mid range when I bought it) and 3gb of RAM. I was considering going to a 4800+ a little while back but I couldnt be bothered. Still soldiering on with one uncalibrated 17" LCD. I think I will go down the road of twin EIZO's with my next computer (not sure when I can afford it though).

Yeah, it was, one i was using briefly as a ring in occasionally, dont use it now, stick solely to the Dekstop, just built a completely new computer for myself from scratch instead of sticking to my older and slowing desktop and buying a laptop. Why do you ask? :)

My other computer, currently residing on my desk at the lab (I'm an honours student) is an old Compaq Presario M2045AP that is way past its use by date. Your laptop looks a lot like it.

Yeah, this one is dead now, not sure whats wrong with it, but its not being used by anyone anymore, they are well past their use by dates, part of the reason i built a new desktop, i wanted a laptop for uni and photography, but figured get one good computer instead of two average to crap ones
