4K for £4K and why you probably shouldn't get a JVC HMQ10

The Alexa Studio only shoots 2K and HD but apparently the consumer world has decided it is rubbish and we should all rush out and buy 4K cameras and displays.

Hence the semi-pro JVC HMQ10 which goes on sale in March is the first 4K camera to break under the $5K mark or £4K. I’ve been keeping an eye on what JVC are doing with their quick Falconbird processor lately but it seems their strategy is a complete mess to me.

This is virtually the same camera as the prototype shown at the 2011 CES and rumored to be projected to sell for about $2K ("[url=http://www.eoshd.com/content/498/meet-the-prosumer-camcorder-which-is-4k-for-2k][u]Meet the prosumer camcorder which is 4K for $2K[/u][/url]"). At that price it would have been a no-brainer.

Looks like the price went up!

At that point $2k was just a rumour though. That it is $5k is not surprising. Wait until you see the prices of the first 50 inch 4K TVs.

Hehe, in the article you said...

"It [4k] may even give you eye fatigue like 3D does."

Which made me laugh. Everyone knows that nothing gives you eye fatigue like looking at bushes rustle in the breeze all day. One's retinas just can't cope with all the detail.  :P So of [i]course[/i] 4k is going to give you a headache!
