I’ll be the first to admit, 4k sounds pretty appealing. Over New Years, people seemed really excited about the possible 4k hack that was announced (and later shown to be a hoax.) I think it’s pretty easy to see the numbers and of course, get excited.
I was sent an article about pixels that really taught me a lot about how these things work. Creative Cow did an in depth interview with Panavision’s John Galt. They talk about the future of displays, cameras and frame rates. It made me look beyond how you can be sold 4k, when really it may not be the best reality.
