Yeah my iPhone 5, which is still going after almost 8 years, crops in whatever the hell it does video in also. Will I ever buy a crazy cinema camera one day like a C100 for some wild reason? I kinda hope not. Something tells me there will be a iPhone event where they boast 4K cinematic quality so everyone and their mother can just make really bad movies that look almost ok.
My question is, do cameras like the 5D4 have to crop into 4K, or are they just feature limiting like people complain about what Apple does so you need to splurge for other devices?
I personally don't care, Full HD at 24fps looks really damn good, and 4K is more of a technical decision that has to have merit for the purpose it's being used, like post production zoom to compensate for real world and budgetary limitations.
