The Pros and (Mostly) Cons of Upgrading to a 4K Monitor

I'm in the process of getting back into photography which will mean a new camera, more on that in a later post. But the first step for me was a new computer, one with the horsepower to handle a modern day camera and its RAW files. Along with the computer comes a new 4K monitor. 4K is great for media consumption, right? Your characters on your favorite show or movie really look detailed and realistic. Scenery looks wonderful.

This photo was taken shortly after sunset at Lake Merritt in Oakland, CA. I like the reflection of the office buildings in silhouette, the incoming clouds, and the sliver of the moon.
