You are comparing apples to orange.tv is not a still picture. and you still havent answered what practical.use would 4k display technology have for the average consumer.
secondly the areas are vastly different between the average picture sizes and a tv screen. its much more evident that a 12mp picture looks betted than a 1-2.
also silver halide/real film.still.trumps any digital photo ive seen to date.
[B][/B][QUOTE=debro;2675000]My 5 year old digital video camera takes photos at 12MP. I have >150GB of photo’s going back 5 years, incidentally
1080p look ok, but just doesn’t do them justice, especially if they are rotated …
My Galaxy S (v1.0) from 2years ago, takes photo’s at 5MP … my iphone 3GS from 4 years ago took photo’s >2MP, my nokia 6600 (or whatever) from 6-8 years ago took photo’s >2MP.
My wedding photos were taken on a >12 megapixel camera, and were provided on (multiple copies of) DVDR
Give me a few more years, and I’ll be cursing those pictures, and it better be in glorious UHD+
I’m off to find a an old mobile phone with 160x120 screen resolution, so I can watch 1080p content at glorious 80 dpi … smart phones … bah … 600p/720p/1080p (250-400dpi) screens … absolutely ridiculous … why would anyone want that? :p[/QUOTE]
