Nx 200, Woohoo First 5K Video camera costing this side of the 1k

Wow, I hope somebody will pick up on this but Nx200 can do 30fps second at 5mp. This means a well planned filmmaker could potentially shoot a second of a video at 5k.

Until now only Scarlet which costs around 15 thousand can shoot around 4k video. This camera puts the 5k in the hands of a consumer at less than 1k. I am sure there are other cameras in the future that would be able to do this and probably better (Canon planned 4k camera) but probably not at this price range. Above all, Samsung gets the credit for making the first interchangeble lens camera that can shoot 5k video but costing less than 1k in dollars.

scarlet 4k video resolution is 4096 x 2160. That's 8847360 pixels.
5 MP is something around 2800 x 1900.

Yep you are correct but this is still close to 3k and we don't have anything south of 10k camera that could do this so far.

The Nikon 1 does 60 FPS at 10MP RAW.

regardless of the 5k 3k or whatever it is, the NX200's video quality is solid but not great, and its controls are good but there is a lack of controls for audio and a mic jack input
