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. Everything looks great, right? Wrong. You know what doesn't look great? That photo I took in 2012 that I thought was sharp but is very much not.

Though technically next door to my home town of Sunnyvale, Hangar One was a structure we could easily see when anywhere close to Moffett Field Naval Air Station. I hope something between the Navy, the city, NASA, and private parties can be put together to renovate it and bring back some of its former glory.
