1080p vs 4K


[link to this post]
 
Is 1080p really this bad? or is my phone just not that great in the 1080p department? Or is 4k just that good?!

Left, 4K, Right 1080p

Shot with an LG G2

I have zoomed in on both videos using the zoom function in MPC

1080p is a very low res for a still image. It is the equivalent of a 2MP digital camera image - that is not considered great these days (in fact my first digital camera in 2000 was a 2MP).

4K is still low-ish at equivalent of 8MP but would be considered reasonable for a digital photo.

Many cameras these days are 16MP+

I don t think that 1080 is bad, it just that 4k is better. 1080 is still good quality for video

As ian72 says, stills from video is not a good idea and zooming in digitally is a problem in itself, which is why I am not fond of digital zoom.

The other problem is how good is the lens on your phone, how good is the sensor?
Also is MPC the best thing to use?

1080p is good for video at 2 megapixel , and 2160p (commonly called 4K UHD) is 8 megapixel. Which as you will note is quite low compared to still cameras, e.g. my Nikon SLR Is a 20 megapixel, many smartphones will have 16 mp or higher still cameras.

Video is typically in motion, and the human eye notices less detail when moving.

Guys. You're responding to a five year old thread that Canadianbee reactivated. It's a habit of his, apparently.
