I would generally agree.
According to this report from a shootout between 70mm and 4K digital projection in 2011. 4K digital (DLP) can hold its own vs 70mm; http://www.avsforum.com/t/1319207/barcos-4k-dlp-cinema-projector-takes-on-15-70mm-film-at-digital-cinema-symposium
Digital cannot touch it... yet. I doubt even the current 8k sensors are THIS good.
You are probably right about the 8K sensors, if it is the NHK 8K broadcast camera you are referring to. Sad to report that they don't have 8K sensors in those cameras, but use three CMOS 4K sensors and do some pixel shifting to acquire 8K.
The 8K JVC projector they have used to display 8K is similar and use 4K panels and e-Shift to create 8K. Which mean we should write this as "8K".
Sony F65 camera they have touted as a 8K camera doesn't have a 8K sensor, and when they in some days at NAB claim they "have made it real 8K" with a firmware upgrade, it is far from true as the camera only has a 20 megapixel sensor and lack more than 10 million pixels to have any 8K claim.
The short is that there are no 8K motion cameras in excistence at the moment, if not someone launch one at NAB 2013.
together with NHK Engineering System,Inc. will show their 8K single sensor camera head at NAB.
No word on recording equipment, but it has dual Optical cable 12 channel output.Edited by coolscan - 4/6/13 at 6:40am
