Canon's Concept Camera is Not RED With Envy

"You're looking at Canon's new 4k "Multipurpose" concept, a wondrous amalgamation of still and video cameras pumping 60 frames per second at 4k resolution out of an 8 megapixel 2/3-inch CMOS sensor. Yep, we said 4k video, approximately quadruple the resolution of 1080p. We had a chance to go hands-on with the prototype at Canon Expo 2010, and believe us when we tell you that it's really, really sharp, both in terms of hardware and the images it produces."

I have to wonder if this is the trend of cameras to come, will terrabyte storage be enough? I remember when GMail first came out with 1GB of storage. For email, it may still be enough for a lot of people, but 1GB is enough to handle just a few minutes of 1080p video. Of course, if Canon ever did release a beauty such as this, one could always make use of YouTube's new 4k video support! One day though, I am certain that camera phones will be capable of this, and we will see an explosion of high definition... everything!
