But there are physical limits to perception. You don't have an infinite number of photo receptors on the back of your eye, nor is the lens capable of resolving more than a certain number of line-pairs. Once you exceed those numbers there is no more detail to be seen.

Contrast and color contribute much more to the perception of reality than resolution.

Yeah, there are definitely 4k cameras (Red just announced their 6k sensor). Almost everything that has been shot in the last 2 years has been on 4k+ digital. Good quality 35mm film can also resolve that much detail.

Thanks, Chris. I knew about film, but not about the current state of digital. What a world.

720p works just fine.
Its also the best resolution currently available from my satelite provider.
