For our Patreon premium tier supporters, a chance to revisit early Digital Foundry analysis, remastered from lossless captures taken at the time we first covered the game. In the case of Bad Company 2, these captures were taken on February 27th, 2010.
I could not see it visually, either unaided eye or with binoculars, so this was really somewhat of a luck out in the pointing. Although I did know that the Moon was directly above the Sun by about 9 degrees, and marked where the Sun set on the horizon, the ecliptic and the Moon moved north a bit as time passed in the 37 minutes after sunset until the image was taken.
I think it depends on how they label and sell 4K. For example if you buy an SD version of a movie, you have to buy it again in HD if you want it. On the other hand, all HD purchases were upgraded from 720p to 1080p when the HD resolution was change in iTunes.
The funny thing is that HD is still relative. Most local broadcasters still only broadcast in 720p, even after all this time, because the cost to upgrade to 1080p is prohibitive, especially for such a (relatively) small difference in picture quality.
Both of these loops are quite a bit lighter than other loops that I have tried of equivalent capacity -- with the exception of the single strand jute loop that I have been playing with. But it is friendlier than the jute. Here are a few videos taken under very different conditions. 2b1af7f3a8
