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.

As I mentioned in my G+ post that went with the photo, I feel like I should caption this with, "I woke up at 5am on a Sunday for good sunrise photos and all I got was this stupid rock". Well I got this rock and my disappearing profile photo, so not a complete loss?
