With 8K provided today by these 'hybrid' cameras there is not really anything else than improved sharpness and improved filesize and price. This will accumulate quite quick to your gear which you will use to take the 'advantage' of that added resolution. I'd say that 6K RAW could be the -next big thing- but is is offered like 8 K is offered as was 4K when it came. Because it is possible. For some reasons the best performance for 4 K is not coming from these monsters. And best 6 K and 8K is not coming out of these beasts either.


It is marketing what is speaking and many gear oriented will believe. many content makers will use, because they also kind a have to.

I'd believe this what Pentax will be coming with is what is easy to have now. I could be wrong and they are mose serious about it. If they have good speed readout and no frame skipping and good solid 24P 4K with working SR(as it seems to be) that should be more than enough for a lot of things.


I would put my money(and I actually already have and will do so in future) for a proper video gear if I wanted more than that. But proper and better won't necessarily mean 6 or 8K.

For those of us who can't even tell the difference between HD and 4k when sitting on our sofas, I'm pretty sure 4k files will be indistinguishable from 8k on an 8k TV. People who claim they they need to stand 8 inches away with a magnifying glass, have entered a different reality than the one where I exist.

I believe that my brothers will buy propably 8K TV(or what ever it is called nowadays), like they did just buy top end genelec system to look movies at home(more than 20 K) and they did say that it is great but they can also hear blemishes from soundtracks(old movies). No need for that what so ever. But if they enjoy that, why not(trying to be pollite at here they are my brothers after all). vast majority that does not make any difference IF you don't get to see the label on that movie and you watch it at 4K display(i can say that this could be most used at here atleast) You'll only see the difference if it is HD, if even then.


As we know it, there is and will be measurbators and then these HiFi guys and what not. I just looked through some things from internet about +6K and shooting and stuff. You have to put big bugs to get high quality 8 K or even 6. Just for the camera. Canon R5 is consumer range 8K. So is A1. in small paggage. Most shooting with those cameras will stick to 4KDCI or even less and shoot prores(canon skips frames to eliminate rolling shutter). Sure at first, you'll shoot 8 K all the time, but after your SSD/HDD has been filled and your computer is beginning to melt down, you'll stick to 4K because it is more handy. Or even HD.


Handy would be what I'd expect from video capabilityes from K-3III. it is there and has SR and it is handy.

Is it video cam. no way. Will it shoot very well stills and in very good iQ? for sure.
