Another, Sky force, has 3D, facial recognition etc features. People were trying to import them for around $1400 LAST YEAR. Apparently different Ultra HD sets have been all over China since last year.

Of course, you could get probably a $300 modern PC to play 4k video. Latest Intel chip sets mostly have support built in, but latest AMD ATI and I think NVIDIA has it built in. But check compatibility with your Ultra HD display and files you wish to display (just because your computer will display it, does not mean it will be able to play your particular type of 4k files).

Various other 4k video services are coming.

Thanks for the 50 or so people still watching.

Coming up to May, apparently camera companies start releasing around then.

I have played with the 4K mode of my GoPro Hero Blacks a little. Only 12fps, and the resolution is limited by the lens quality. I am, however, routinely using their 2.7K 17:9 24fps RAW mode (protune) as cropping / tweaking the RAW in post-processing is amazing... I wish never had to go back to linear 8 bit (actually 24 bit)...

The lens on my FZ200 is probably good enough for 4K, as is the lens on my LX7, but both are right on the edge at 4K resolution. Using the "Nat" film mode (in both cameras) gives the widest dynamic range.

Gph3 uses high end consumer Sony sensor, and some higher than standard trickery, probably not going to come for that reason, until a replacement comes. People are asking about what gopro is going to do next, and if a Backmagic like pocket camera.

Gopro a d another company taken the gph3 to the nextev with lens attachment and new body design and rents the camera out.

Well, it looks like we are being hung out to dry, no realistic UHD consumer cameras. In truth, we should have 8k by now on the high end consumer.

There are a few more big camera shows to go this year.

The replacement for my $49 fullhd p25 camera has come in for $69, and it looks basically the same, not p50. But times this by 4 to get an idea of how cheap a uhd camera can be done.
