4k, who actually wants this in their cameras?
11 months ago

NR have posted that nikon are looking at 4k for their cameras, stating it is what customers want. But is it? I only shoot stills so i am not best placed to know, do people want 4k in a d4, d800 body?

I worry Nikon see this as the next big upsell, while i would rather see focus on still IQ.  My understanding is that 4k hass significant issues for example compression for storaage, as the file sizes are huge, and big pattent issues here.  Sony have only recently launched a 4k cinema camera!

I think if Nikon wants video they should consider video focused gear for the F mount, and focus on the still gear seperately.

Nikon D4 Nikon D800
