6 Cameras to Ease Your Way Into Shooting 4K Video

6 Cameras to Ease Your Way Into Shooting 4K Video | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

To record in 4K or not to record in 4K, that is the (admittedly awkward) question many photographers and videographers are grappling with. As momentum continues to build behind the new format, you might find yourself grappling with it, too.

If you’re considering the jump to 4K, we’ve selected six video cameras that deliver it in a package that’s affordable, preserves your ability to shoot in HD and is relatively easy to use if you know your way around an HD digital SLR. Workflows for 4K are still maturing, so some solutions require proprietary memory formats and/or software for post-processing, but hey, no pain, no gain, right?

The difference in pricing is staggering. But the price doesn't always influence productivity. This was informative on a budgeting aspect, which troubles any and everyone in the movie making industry.

Why Ultra HD video will make you want a better PC

Why Ultra HD video will make you want a better PC | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

No doubt the next GoPro Hero will up the ante to 4K at HFR frame rates (the Hero3 already does 4k at 15 frames per second) and then things really are going to get very silly indeed.

 

So what about it Intel? Let's have your best shot, not more of these sandbag CPUs.

The GoPro Hero3's 4K Resolution Is Wonderfully Useless

The GoPro Hero3's 4K Resolution Is Wonderfully Useless | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

GoPro's brand spankin' new line of its popular action-cams offers a lot of great upgrades: The cams are smaller, lighter, and have higher frame rates.

 

Sweet! The Black version also offers 4K video recording, a feature sure to make headlines and widen the eyes of video gear-heads.

 

It is ultimately nothing but a vacuous gimmick.
