[Steve Connor] "BMD have just announced their 4K camera is now shipping and they've dropped the price to $2,995!"

This is where it starts to get interesting: when you don't need to charge extra for 4K because there's no premium to produce it.

There are obviously infrastructure costs, but most Tube purchasers who are buying them to work in HD will have what they need for 4K. So, a relatively inexpensive camera, and voila.

No kidding, this happened with HD. The broadcast guys had a very hard time justifying it at first (and hey, the majority of my TV channels are still SD), but non-broadcast guys had a hard time justifying NOT doing it.

We're not quiiiite there for 4K, but for many people already, we're not NOT there either.
