Panasonic Does 4K Video for Under $900 with Lumix DMC-FZ1000

4K FZ1000

It appears as though Panasonic wasn’t done when they released the Panasonic DMC-GH4 which was already one of the cheapest 4K cameras available in the world at $1,600, until today. Panasonic has just opened up the world of 4K to basically anyone that finds it be a valuable resource to have (especially if they already have a 4K TV).

Toshiba's P55t 4K Laptop is Awesome, Too Much for Current Apps

As someone that has spent the good part of the last 2 years with ultra-high resolution displays ranging from 13.3″ up to 36″ I can tell you that as an operating system, Windows is simply not ready for 4K. On a 31.5″ monitor you can still appreciate the pixels and not feel like you have to squint to see things.
