When I shoot with multiple cameras, I’m limited to 1080p (FHD), but when I shoot only with my new camera, I can, and often do, shoot UHD (3840 x 2160) and even full 4K (4096 x 2160). In those cases, I generally downsize the video to 1920 x 1080 (FHD) or 1280 x 720 (HD) for publishing.
I could just upload a UHD version of the clip, when it’s available, but those files are pretty large, so I’m not inclined to upload them if there is no real advantage.
Before you say, “sure, 4K sounds great!”, keep in mind that the 4K clips will probably cost more and they’ll take up about twice as much space on your hard drive. The FHD videos already have a lot of resolution, and I think they look really good. It’s probably safe to say that I will be doing more FHD format videos, and move away from the HD (1280 x 720) frame size.
I tweeted a twitter poll from my @MudBondage twitter account. You can respond there if you don’t have an account here. I’d really like to hear from those of you who support my production efforts.
