8K cameras like the Canon EOS R5 and Fujifilm X-H2 show the future of video capture, but to make the most of it, you really need the best 8K monitor on which to view and edit your footage. Trouble is, even in 2023 speeds, there's still only ONE true 8K monitor you can realistically buy - the Dell UltraSharp UP3218K. 

Back in January 2021 ViewSonic teased us with its first 8K monitor offering, but it has so far failed to make it onto the market. Samsung has an 8K gaming monitor in the wings - and if you really have a big Hollywood budget, then there is a professional option from NEC.
