Anyone heard any news on these? Just thinking about how cheap the camera is in comparison to other cameras that don't even do HALF as much as the RED ONE does... I'm ready to put down my pre-order on a monitor from the RED team.

The only 4K monitors I saw were at the Ultra High Definition tent where they were showing an 8K projection system. They had 1080P and 4K monitors on display outside of the tent to show what a 4K monitor can do. Unfortunately, I couldn't see the benefit of the 4K monitor unless you're sitting right in front of it, like a foot at the farthest, and after that you may as well stick with the 1080P display. As production monitors though, these would be the Holy Grail for us. Everything is in the prototype stages right now though so it could be awhile.

RED's 4K monitors aren't out yet, they just said that they were working on them. Perhaps they'll be working alongside Apple to bring new Cinema Displays? We won't know until they say something.
