Almost nobody is watching 8K

8K displays are absolutely incredible, and once you've seen one in person you can't unsee it. It's exciting to think that some day 8K displays will be everywhere.

But today, they're not everywhere. In fact, they aren't really anywhere except for niche locations like post-production environments or the living room of that guy down the street who always has the latest gizmo (and isn't afraid to pay top dollar for it). Sure, 8K TVs are coming down in price, but they still run into the thousands of dollars and it will be a while before they're commonplace.

8K TVs are coming down in price, but they still run into the thousands of dollars...

There's also the question of whether most viewers will be able to see the difference between 4K and 8K. Even with good eyesight, human vision at typical viewing distances will be a limiting factor unless you're using an exceptionally large display.

In short, there's really no reason to get an 8K camera in order to deliver 8K content today.
