  1. 1920 x 1080 uses more diskspace. Thats the only difference i know.
    I would like to film in the best quality and put it on vimeo or youtube.

    Now i am wondering :
    Is there a real difference in quality when you want to create videos which will be placed on youtube? Is it visible?



    Thanks

  2. No 1920x1080 on that video. Are you spamming us?

    So the below examples may help...

    Recently, while I was spec'ing out cams to decide the resolution requirements for a job I planned, I wanted to be clear about what was the level of acceptability for whatever resolution I chose. Unfortunately, most comparative examples of resolution demonstrate the size differential (see below):

Views:	789
Size:	2.23 MB
ID:	24737
    (note: this was scaled down to fit the usual browser window size, as a 4k width would be unwieldy)

    While this is helpful for certain things, it DOESN'T explain the comparison between resolutions in terms of equivalent full-screen DETAIL, which is what I was needing, and what I believe many consumers mistakenly ignore until it is explained to them. So here goes:

    #2 SD D1 or 720x480

    #3 HD 1280x720

    #4 HD 1920x1080

    #5 2k 2048x1080

    #6 4k 4096x2160
    Name:  LandscapeCompare-4k.png

    All images are taken from a master 6k/8k still and sized down then blown up to equivalent frame sizes, using the same downrez algorithm and the same uprez algorithm. What you are seeing is a (~200%?) blown up section from the center of the 4k screen - just to the right of the 1080 overlay.

    I think this should make it clear to the OP what the difference between 1920x1080 and 640x480 (or its nearest equivalent here: 720x480) is - Quite a LOT!

    Hopefully, it will help others in their understanding of resolution and in deciding which way to go WRT cameras, rendering, etc.

  8. I liked JaG's reply
    Yes. Are you blind?

    and Cornucopia's patience & explanations, as usual.

    So, in short,
    SiZE does matter!

  9. No is no spam. I just looked for an example of a video made with a canon 5d mkII. Thats the camera i wanna buy...I wanna work with an DSLR.
    I now have a nikon 90d. That filmquality is not bad but the 5d i much better.

    The problem is that if you place videos of 16gb on vimeo (i wanna upload each week 3 videos off 20 minutes each) you have to have a pro account.
    So when i do a quick count :
    With 16gb flashcard you can make a movie of 49 minutes at 1920x1080
    With a 16gb flashcard you can make a movie of 1h39 at 640x480

    As you will notice at 640x480 i can make much more films without getting to the 16gb/ week upload limit on vimeo.

    Thanks

  10. But it won't look as good as 1920x1080 and that was stated in previous posts with examples.
