Am I the only one to be excited by this baby?

http://www.pcworld.idg.com.au/article/455605/product_snapshot_sharp_pn-k321_ultra_hd_monitor/

For the price of a Zeiss 55mm lens... a real high performance 4K display available for order today (at least in Tokyo).  Smiley

Cheers,
Bernard

JVC just previewed an 8K projector. Imagine watching D800 shots on it!

Yep, but that is real expensive.

On the other hand the Sharp 4K 32 inch is in fact not completely unaffordable...

LOL...I was actually commenting on the 'exciting' bit.

By the way, the Sony 4K 55" is 'only' $5,000: http://ow.ly/jPSCu I'll bet they come down to half by the end of next year.

Yep, but that's a TV not designed for critical color work.

I had the chance to see the Sharp PN-K321 in the flesh yesterday in an engineering context.

It really is a very nice screen! I did not have the opportunity to do any color critical checks, but the images on display were mighty impressive... and it does have a matte finish.

The current street price in Japan is 340,000 Yen, which is roughly 3,500 US$ or half the price of a Leica 50mm APO.  Cheesy

32 inches is large but didn't feel much larger than my current 30 inch Dell. It is also significantly thinner.

It's a reasonable price. When you consider the original price (US$4000) of the first 22-inch Apple Cinema display (1999?).

Yes, I find it pretty reasonable also. Now I guess it would make more sense with a graphic card able to drive it. :-)

I am also not to sure that the current software I use (as well as the solution I chose to use to replace Photoshop in the coming months) would be able to leverage elegantly this additional resolution without introducing issues in terms of usability (menus/icons too small,...).

So I'll probably wait 1 year unless my Dell 30 inch dies before (which is possible based on recent warnings).

Bernard

It doesn't take anything special to drive 4k screens for normal use. Gaming, yes, apps, nope.  There have been sub $1300 models for a few months gamers have been playing with.  Not pro color, but still sweet resolution!  Drivers have supported this res and much more for a long time.

How do you do that on a Mac Pro 2,1?

I am aware about the Seki 4k tv, but that is a 50 inch screen, correct? I am not sure I would want to use such a large display for photographic applications. Its reliability also seems questionable according to online reports.

Oh come on now, you know everyone running Macs are computer consumers.  You can't do anything new or out of the Apple playground, can't expect to use neat stuff like this on a Mac Wink

In fact you can, but you need a Mac pro 4,1 or newer. The problem is the lack of 4K ready graphic card compatible with the PCI ports in older macs like mine.  Wink
