How Much Resolution in a 5K Display?

The late 2014 5K iMac offers an incredible 5K resolution display: 5120 X 2880, which is 14.7 megapixels, or nearly the entire resolution of many of today’s popular APS-C digital cameras.

This compares to still-emerging 4K UltraHD diplays which are typically 3840 X 2160 = 8.3 million pixels, and to HD (BluRay) which is a paltry 1920 X 1080 2.07 million pixels. Kinda funny how “HD” is now “low resolution”.

Diglloyd photography publications and guides have included the viewing pleasure of UltraHD images for about 18 months now (3840 wide, 8.3 million pixels).

A 4K UltraHD image at 3840 X 2560 image will easily fit onto an iMac 5K display. The 8.3 million pixels will leave another 6.4 million pixels unused! Click for larger.
