I would bet that most of us do not even have a 4K screen at home, or work. I know I do not, and I am not planning on buying one, even though many cameras already take 4K video, which is great.I believe the "Red" cameras can shoot 6K video....
All those manufacturers will have to sell off their stock, and I am sure a few won't be too pleased that Dell has just confirmed the "world's first" 5K display!!
This makes me wonder. How long do you think it will be before we are seeing cameras with more than 4K shooting ability? What is holding the technology back in terms of how far can it go in just the next few years?
Let's not discuss whether we need 4K, 5K, or 6K and more, or even whether the human eye can distinguish between them, as that cat is well and truly out of the box and there is no heading back, whether you like it or not.
I won't be upgrading my TV until I know I can get a 4K or 5K+ signal on the channels I watch (like Setanta, BBC etc), but I am very happy to buy a new camera for the videos I do (now use the 1DX) if it has more XK.
