You thought 1080p was crisp?

I cant describe it very well the article is on wikipedia, its basically Ultra-High-Definition, pretty much the same picture quality that our eyes see, which is 33.1Megapixels, the best digital cameras on the market can do 14 megapixels at a push.

    There was this thing called 4k not too long ago, when 1080p was new. I know Toy Story 3 was shown in select theaters in 4k as an 'experiment'

    no need to go higher than the eyes can

    just imagine a tv that goes past your eyes but your eyes wont be able to see it

    Youtube shows 4k videos, just search for them, on youtube. 4K video's. All this stuff about 1080p and full hd is not new. I have a pc moniter that can go beyond 1080p.

    I think the wiki article mentions its in 8k, so those 4k videos (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N0m1XmvBey8) times 2 is the resolution im guessing :P

    Medium format digi cameras, like hasselblads are 31-40 megapixel. They are 13k-30k dollars too. I think 1080p is like 2.1 megapixel.

    thats half true. 2 MP is true, but it is not a direct comparison. sadly, just like "contrast ratio" on TVs, "MP" is not a completely universal term... the marketing department is always looking for loopholes to make their product seem better than the competition.

    on most cameras, they split the coloring up across megapixels (for example, red = 2mp, blue = 2mp, green = 2mp, so it takes 3 pixels to make 1 full colored pixel.), so really (most of the time) you can divide their number by 3. 1080p is comparable to most 6MP cameras on the market, but you were correct, it would be a TRUE 2MP camera that matches 1080p (a typical 2mp camera on the market is less than 1 actual MP).

    heres a little forum that speaks about the issue if youre interested (they explain it better than me):
