Another big issue with 4K in your home is streaming content at that resolution. As on demand internet content services become more popular, there’s only a handful of people in the grand scheme of things that will have the bandwidth necessary to stream 4K resolution reliably.</p>
Another reason why streaming is an unmitigated evil at this point. Heck it doesn't even have the bandwidth to deliver 1080p and high quality audio. Almost all streaming services look and sound like a joke compared to blu-ray and even the very best one is still not there. Plus it is a terrible waster of internet bandwidth. Why do so many people get choked down speeds at popular hours (even in big metro areas it's not uncommon to drop down to 2Mbps internet speeds, only 1/20th of a single top quality blu-ray stream with zero bandwidth let for anyone else in the house at that)? It's all wasted on streaming stuff better delivered, for now, on disc. They tend to never offer various cuts, extras, etc. either. Internet speed is wayyy far away from what we need.
<p>Will we see 4K in a DSLR camera other than <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/855962-REG/Canon_EOS_1D_C_EOS_1D_C_4K_Cinema.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">Canon EOS-1D C</a>? One day, though I don’t think it will be soon. A drop in price-point for Canon is something that would be welcomed. The $25K+ <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/855975-REG/Canon_EOS_C500_Cinema_EOS.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">C500</a> is a big jump from the $15K <a href=\"http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/839220-REG/Canon_5779B002_C300_Cinema_EOS_Camcorder.html/bi/2466/kbid/3296\" target=\"_blank\">C300</a>.</p>
And this is why Canon appears like they have already dropped the ball. BM is coming out with SUper35 4k for under $4000 soon! This is why the 'trolls' and 'whiners' have been on Canon's case. They coulda had this segment all locked up. Their bean counters are so worried about internal market segmentation and milking this and that away that they will end up letting the whole cow run off in the long (and not even that long) term.
They have so much tech that they sit on and dribble out and milk and yeah that can boost short term but video world has a lot more competition.
<p>The 4K and 8K resolution is beautiful on the big screen, just don’t expect it to become mainstream in your home. Your local movie theatre is a different story.</p>
In time. And just think how beautiful for editing AND photo display ultra hi-res PC monitor will be too.
