I was illustrating the fact it makes no sense to have 8K on a 32 inch screen, let alone a frigging
4K laptop screen. I don't know why people don't get that the human eye has a finite resolution.
This is why you can take a 24mp camera, shoot something with a 35mm lens (50mm or basically 1:1
equivalent) zoom in on the image and SEE greater detail than the eye could from that distance.
Fitting the image to the screen and viewing it, you just killed 1/2 the resolution.
