    Whether it's 720p or 16K, it doesn't matter what's necessary or what's the current standard because technology will always move on.

    You’re that guy and what? We know they’re being phased out but theyre still for sale. Why buy a 1080p tv when the price of a 4K is the same. Technology gets phased out and was once the top ends up being phased out. Consumers are buying 4K TVs because theyre affordable. Bm is going to phase out the 4K and m43 Chios because of the same.

      I felt the same last year, before the Pocket 4K was announced, that BMD was phasing out the smaller sensor MFT cameras, then the Pocket 4K was announced and released. Now, I think they will be around a little longer. The new Pocket 6K is not a replacement for the PC4K, but supplements and adds to the lineup.
      Cheers

        "Not to be that guy' is an American idiom...I didn't really want to call attention to it but I did, and I was politely correcting you because there aren't "over 50 models of 1080p TVs" at B&H. Unless you do understand and actually telling me that I am indeed that guy, lol.

          Look I did mean you are that guy. Take the stick out okay. I was at the B&H site and checked 1080p tv’s using their filter settings which said there were 50. I didn’t check every page to find out there were only 30 something but u obviously did so go on and be well. your efforts will be much applauded in the internet’s.

              You are a better man than me. Without even looking I knew what was being posted was nonsense, and I couldn't be bothered to debunk it.

              Anybody in the US who has been to a big box store recently knows they are stacked floor to ceiling with 4k TVs. The only 1080p TVs I've seen for YEARS are smaller cheaper TVs. 4K TVs are something that has been pushed by manufacturers and trade publications. There are early adopters out there but most of us just buy what is available and reasonably priced.

              I have yet to go to a person's home who has even bothered to calibrate the TV they own. These people are not laying awake at night thinking about 4k vs 1080p.

                For what it's worth I've found 3 perfectly good 1080p displays on the side of the road recently. Two apple HD displays and a viewsonic monitor that I use as my 3rd screen now.

                People are literally tossing out 1080P screens where I'm at XD.

                  I agree about the just business part, but it does make sense that the UMP sensor costs a lot more than the Pocket sensors: it's a custom design. Sony sells legions of sensors to everyone and their cat, so of course it's less expensive thanks to the economies of scale -- and some of the cost of the Pocket sensors is actually amortized over the cost of cell phone sensors, which helps to keep the costs down.

                  On the other hand, since the 4.6K sensor is a bespoke design, it isn't selling in particularly large volumes in semiconductor terms, and BMD is its only customer. The manufacturer probably has other customers, but they're most likely for things like medical and other scientific imaging applications, and therefore small volume products that are custom or semi-custom.

                    If I were going to suggest a BM conspiracy it would be in the quality area not in the availability area.

                    The 6k is cheaper than a lot of mid level SLRs, so to me it's meh.

                    But the fact that you have to do risk assessment with respect to quality and failure of BM cameras stinks.

                      If the Viewsonic is the same I had for many years, it's actually not bad at all once calibrated to Rec709.
