            RED is the most overpriced (hardware) brand ever.

                      Why don't stick to Full HD and enjoy thousands of FPS? Seriously: I would always prefer a great quality (like: wide dynamic range) RAW HD footage over anything with a "K" in its name…

                        @Jake Summers So all these things go in hand , and the answer to my original naive question is that it is a mere matter of communicating to non-experts?

                        @Tim Pillomann because most people have no idea what that is but if you can say this number is now bigger and better on my video can make your video sound like It better quality

                        @Jake Summers I understand, it also makes a lot of sense for VFX artists (e.g. matchmoving), but my naive question aims more at why there is such a big fuss/trend about the "K" and so much less about things like "dynamic range" or "sensor size". Bigger sensors do not only give more "K", but also more field of depth and less noise. Or is it that all these things go in hand?

                        @Tim Pillomann because various effects used can have a loss of video resolution like when you want to digitally zoom in on something so when you have 8 k video you can still have ever part of the video in 4 k it's not like they expect anyone to view the actual 8k footage nobody has the hardware for that 😂. They always export the final video to a lower resolution anyway than 8k.

                          spend 7000$ on a card, so you can edit a footage nobody but you can watch? and then when people will be able to watch it (if ever, I doubt 8k will ever take off), the card will cost like 700$

                              I'm not sure that I completely followed everything but sounds like Red Rocket for $7000 barely does anything.

                                        You could edit on linux. Ubuntu and Ubuntu based distros show a huge reduction of time waiting for things to load.
