4K

What is 4K video?

4K is a video resolution that stands for the (approximate) 4,000 pixels of footage width.

When you shoot video in 4K, you can expect deeper, richer colours, exceptional detail, and greater image clarity. 4K also defines the compression, bit rate, and colour depth of your film material, and offers more options for post-processing.

What are the benefits of shooting video in 4K?

  • You can distinguish the smallest details with exceptional contrast and minimal colour loss
  • The 4K matrix creates a 3D image that can be well viewed from all angles without 3D glasses
  • 4K video allows for edits in post-production including scaling, panning, and zooming without losing image quality
