The First 4K Movie You Can Download Is 160GB And Absolutely Breathtaking

I've been waiting for this moment for a long time and it's here at last: Tom Lowe has released his stunning documentary, TimeScapes, which is a silent portrait of our planet captured with exquisite 4K cinematography.

It's available in iTunes up to 1080p and also from his site at 1440p. That's 2560x1440 pixels, the first 1440p film ever sold, which looks breathtakingly perfect on my 2560x1440b iMac display.

It's also the first movie available to consumers at 4K resolution — 4096x2304 Pixels! It's 160GB, in super-duper-awesometastic-high-quality Cineform 4:2:2 format. You can buy this one for $US299 in an external USB drive. [TimeScapes]
