Discover the differences between 4K and Full HD video – so you can choose the device that’s right for you.
4K video captures more data, so for the same recording time you’ll need larger memory cards with high transfer speeds and a faster internet connection for streaming. Full HD gives you smaller file sizes, ideal for easy upload and streaming of online content.
Storing extra data while shooting in 4K can require a bigger hard drive, when shooting in 4K it is also advisable to have a more powerful PC to ensure smooth editing.
With 4K you can enjoy the creative freedom to zoom, pan and crop into your footage up to 200% and still deliver your movies in Full HD resolution - making it ideal for video enthusiasts making movies and creative footage.
Canon cameras that capture in 4K can also record in Full HD – so you can choose the right movie resolution to suit each creative project.
You can enjoy the full effect and incredible detail of 4K filming on a 4K TV. Even if you don’t have a 4K TV right now, choosing a 4K recording device will ensure you are ready to experience the amazing detail of 4K as soon as you upgrade.
