4K is just a gimmick like 3D and curved TV's ?

I'm not convinced that 4K is the next  'big thing'

Until global broadcasters have lots of 4K content and more critically -  the means to broadcast 4K  -then nothing will drive the purchase of 4K TV's and therefore no-one will have anywhere to view their 4K videos....

I suspect 4K will be like 3D.

The TV manufacturers will make a huge fuss about it.... and the public will take little notice.

Of course no-one is going to mind having 4K in a camera - I guess its just a bit of possible  future proofing - but many cameras have 3D abilities and I bet almost no-one uses it.
