Unbelievably bad article. In this case, upgrading to 8k involves enormous expense and increased hard ware requirements. For the vast majority of content distribution it is simply not worth it. If you have an unlimited budget and intend your media to be viewed on a theatre screen, then no doubt, it is worth considering, but for the majority of folks who are using smaller format distribution then the balance of cost, hardware requirements etc is clearly in favour of 4k, at most.
To argue that this is a philosophical matter of 'accepting change' is incredibly patronising. Most people who are editing in 4k are already early adopters. If you can't mount a valid balanced argument in favour of 8k on the basis of cost vs output then don't patronise us all by accusing those who dont adopt as being change averse.
Will be fascinating to see the video quality when pulling 8k from that tiny sensor

"This piece seems to scream put me in a studio/set on a tripod."
It doesn't scream anything of the sort. Looks very much like a Canon dSLR with a grip, perfectly suited to carrying around. Clearly it wont work with a cage, but when carrying with an IS'd lens as a light weight set up I think it will work perfectly, and will double battery life and balance the camera with bigger lenses
The comparison video is seriously rubbish. Sloppy ('the Inspire weighs twice as much' : no it does not, it weighs nearly 5 times as much), and pointless focusing on issues of ease of assembly and carrying etc : everyone with any interest already knows that the Inspire is much more of a chore than the tiny Mavic. The video needs to focus on what improvements the Inspire may bring at several times the weight and cost. Why not focus on more specifics of the noise comparison at high ISO, compression artefacts associated with the difference in data rate, the capacity to grade and crop footage, the value of a larger sensor etc etc. But all he refers to is differences in 'Cinematic Quality'. Which, in this context, means absolutely nothing. A real disappointment.
