    I'm just curious with all the 4k drones out there how many of the owners have a 4k display device. My initial thoughts are not many but if we are innovative enough to be part of dronenation then I'm sure a 4k playing device was already part of the arsenal.

    So far, I'm very impressed with the 4k footage the Phantom captures and my Laptop supports 4k but I've been very unimpressed with the online options for 4k streaming. It's time for me to test out Vimeo (unpaid) because Youtube is horrendous trying to stream a 4k clip on a 100mb download internet.

    None of my clients (even one TV production group) want 4K footage so I shoot everything in 1080p. I supposed when I do move up to shooting in 4K I'll have to purchase a 4K system for editing AND a 4K TV just to I can preview it (That's my excuse anyway LOL).

    Vimeo free only gives you 500mb/week, soon use that up with 4K.
    I have a 4K phantom, but no 4K monitor or processing, Dashware does not work on 4K, but there is a workaround.

    Only my P3P is 4K but post pro is not. I sill shoot in 4K in case I need to crop in post pro so I keep good resolution. I bought my P3P knowing I will not be able to take advantage of 4K right away. But at least I'm ready when the time comes.

    You guys are all on the same thought process as me. No one ever says I want 4k, but it's nice to be able to shoot in 4k and export in 1080p and be able to scale a bit more especially when those propellers pop into the frame.
