My curiosity then is in your plans. Let's assume you don't have the necessary support system of tools for 4k yet.
Let's not assume, shall we?
-Guestimated $1500 for the GH4
-$300 per 64GB memory card
Sound money-management and not having "upgraded" my cameras in quite a while has led me to the strange situation where I have bags full of dinero in my "Photography" slush-fund. So, check, doable, piece of cake.
-$2000 for a barely good enough computer to process
-Several hundred more for addtional hard drive space
I use computers (note plural) for other stuff as well. I'll just cluster a few of the idlers.
-Potential upgraded monitor cost
I guess it's time for this. So, yes.
You are telling me you have the will and ability to do this right now or even in the next 6 months?
Yes. I live cheap, have zero debt and make sacks full of money each month. So I guess I can swing it.
And even if you do, how many other consumers do you think are in the same boat with you?
Well ... this is where your argument falls flat ... consumers are not the same as professionals.
