That's the reality in the next three years as 4K capable sensors make their way down the consumer chain. Right now, it may seem too far off as pricing is the main deterent. You won't want to go out to buy a 1DC just coz you can do this. Nope. You would want to buy this once technology makes it cheap enough for you to own it.
The MTF Olympus OMD already has the capability to capture 10 frames a second of still images. Now that's a lot of frames. If you can't possibly nail a decent picture within 10 fucking frames then nothing in photographic world can save you. And have you seen how tiny this camera is? Forget the bulky DSLRs of old. I know they look good and aspiring models will want to shag you just cause you look so cool wearing it round your neck but when it comes to imaging, who the heck can tell the difference if all you shoot can be done in a studio?
So if you want to go pro and not miss a frame, you should be shooting video instead of stills. Enough said.
As I go back to the world of film imaging, I will look back fondly at the days where digital stills were all the rage. Smartphones will replace digital compact cameras, and video cameras will replace DSLRs.
Look at the RED dragon sensor. The RED is a spiffy video camera that is 6K capable. And the dragon sensor that was announced has been tested to give you 20 stops of dynamic range. Slide film gives you only up to 16 stops.
What hope is there for you puny DSLR? Future door stopper I hear?
Pro photographers have little choice but to upgrade to video cameras like the RED if they truly want imaging quality, and by this I mean commercial photographers who work in studios. You can still carry that odd DSLR for location shooting but I am sure you'd want a RED if you are ever going to do something that pays well.
