When the subjects I am shooting are not captured the way I want because of my camera I will look to upgrade cameras.
Right now the 6 frames per second I have are enough for the activities I shoot so I will not be spending money for 8,10,14,25,100 FPS until I am missing so many images it is driving me mad.
At the moment, 1080p is the baseline standard for any video-capable device, e.g. GoPro (anything less and you may as well go home) and 4k is needed to be 'good'.
It won't be long before 4k is the baseline and 8k is needed to be 'good'. Then, a few years after that, 8k will be the new baseline.
When even an entry-level video device can shoot 32MP at 25fps, what reason would there be for a camera company to bring out a dedicated stills camera shooting 32MP at 15fps, possibly using a mechanical rather than electronic shutter? At that stage, even a basic 8k video device with the same sensor size would outshoot the dedicated stills camera for action. It would be like someone releasing an 8MP, 14fps action camera now - pointless. Sure, they could up the resolution to 60MP and 14fps, but how much spatial resolution do you need for action and sports?
