4K televisions are finally becoming mainstream. You can generally find pretty good deals on them if you look hard enough or wait for specific sales to hit. But, 4K has been out for years and is just becoming mainstream. Most phones now can shoot in 4K, cameras are finally catching up and becoming affordable. So we’re good with that, right? No need to go any higher, 4K is already super a high-resolution, right? Wrong. While 4K is very high-resolution (4 times that of 1080p), 8K is what’s next.
There are already a few 8K cameras on the market, none consumer focused, but I’m OK with that. Panavision, a company you might have heard of, recently announced its 8K camera, but what does that mean for consumers who will never purchase (or even use) said camera? Read below to find out.
