I stumbled across wikipedia's page about film. I haven't read the whole thing, but I found something that was a bit troubling. Under the section "Future State" toward the bottom of the article, it says this:

"The maximum resolutions that film currently offers are 2485×2970 or 1420×3390, UHD, a future digital video format, will offer a massive resolution of 7680×4320, surpassing all current film resolutions. The only viable competitor to these new innovations is IMAX which can play film content at an extreme 10000×7000 resolution."

This is clearly a strange and inaccurate statement. How did the author come up with these figures?

If someone knows how to let wikipedia know that there is an error in one of there articles, please let me know how to do so.

Well part of Wikipedia's charm is that it's relatively easy to edit and anyone can do... http://en.wikipedia....ng_to_Wikipedia

As far as the numbers regarding films resolution, the article sites no sources and the numbers themselves look fairly random so I don't think you'd have to much trouble changing it to something considered more correct.
