    You guys do realize backplates help protect the circuit right, especially if you have water cooling. It's not just to look cool.

                                                                        • Jake Summers

                                                                        • Tim Pillomann

                                                                          @Jake Summers I understand, it also makes a lot of sense for VFX artists (e.g. matchmoving), but my naive question aims more at why there is such a big fuss/trend about the "K" and so much less about things like "dynamic range" or "sensor size". Bigger sensors do not only give more "K", but also more field of depth and less noise. Or is it that all these things go in hand?

                                                                        • Jake Summers

They always export the final video to a lower resolution anyway than 8k.
