    Just read an article that claims Apple is expected to release a new ipad with 4K capability in March...
    sounds like a match made in heaven soon...

    A 4K camera yes, but this rumour is regarding a 4K display.

    makes sense. because the naked eye can definitely discern between 4k and 1080 resolution on an 8" screen...

    Yeah, I have to agree with bbfpv.

    Even with a large-screen HDTV, the image only occupies a portion of your field of vision. Point of diminishing return? In the right hands, the 4K images can be stunning, but with a lot of work, and a fair amount of drain on your storage and processor resources.

    I like the 4K (or 2.7K) capability mostly because they can be cropped/tilted/adjusted in post (or frame-captured for decent stills), before they're converted to 1080, which to my eyes, looks just fine! :)

    This is a good video to test out 4K with different settings/displays... I can see the differences on my ipad/iphone...
    the 4K ipad display should shine with this kind of footage...
