Is there a list somewhere that shows all the available media in 4K ? Obviously, I'm not talking about YouTube clips, or personal 4K camcorder movies. I'm talking about movies or tv shows, or maybe documentaries. Something that somebody would have actually heard of.
Basically... what is the compelling content from a TV show and Movie standpoint ?
I'd love to be tempted by 4K, but seeing I don't think After Earth or Elysium are enough of an incentive to try to jump on the 4K bandwagon. Plus, you're pretty much forced to go with Sony right ? How do you get the content on all the other 4K tv's ?
Remeber how much better the iphone got after a retina display. The resolution jump helped movies, Internet etc.
4k does the same. Its like going from dvd to bluray. Not so big but close to that big.
Every movie you own right now looks better.
3d is more sharp and better looking than 2d bluray. At least on my hu9000 it is. Not all 3d is the same.
Now add to that the uhd 1tb drive I have plenty of content for now.
And all my stuff looking better feels new.
When I get a 4k expirience im floored. So damn good.
But if you were buying a tv today think of it like the iphone or ipad.
One has a standard screen. One has a retina.
Does the non retina iphone or ipad still function? Yes.
Is everything better with a retina screen. Yes.
Can 4k get ink blacks from edge lit panels? Yes.
Is the motion handling better this year? Yes.
Will 10 but panels come out later? Yes.
But those will still be 4k. Imagine you only have 1080p 8 bit now. At least a 4k 8 bit has some future benefit.
The 1080p sets in 2 years will be bargin sets like the 720 sets before them.
Why but a 1080p set outside of black levels from a plasma? Motion is a wash.
And 4k led sets have amazing black levels. I posted a 4k video in the hu9000 owners thread of the panasonic kuro best video playing on my set.
The video was shot in 4k to give some sense of the real expirience. Still that cant match what I see in person.
But it will show the black levels these 2014 edge lit sets can accomplish.
