Why 4K? The Top 3 Reasons Why You Need To Ditch That Old Camera

4K is the latest buzzword in the world of technology, and if you haven’t yet heard it yourself, then you are in for a treat. 4K, which is essentially an ultra high definition video technology, is the next step in video and photography and is the technology that has changed the way movies are made and photographs are taken.

Today, hundreds of professional filmmakers and amateur photographers are making the switch to 4K cameras, bidding adieu to their old and outdated ones. Why? Because 4K offers four times the resolution of a traditional Full HD camera.

Moreover, cameras like the Sony FDR-AX1, Canon EOS-1D and the Panasonic Lumix GH4 4K are changing the dynamics of film making and photography by offering superior slow motion and high-speed video capturing features never before seen.

Still need reasons to switch? We will give you the 3 top reasons why you need to ditch that old camera right now and step into the next phase of professional photography evolution.

1. Picture quality with lifelike textures

Shoot a video with your old camera and then compare it to one that has been shot with a 4K device. Traditional video cameras lack the spunk of modern age next-gen 4K technology.

4K Cameras feature dedicated image processors with quad-core CPU’s to ensure high speed image signal processing, giving you lifelike textures, as they were meant to be. Interestingly, many emerging photographers and videographers are already experimenting with ultra high definition video setup, which explains the game changing aspects that 4k has to offer.

So if you are still stuck with your traditional point-and-shoot camera, you might want to get acquainted with what your contemporaries are doing with eight times the number of pixels, using their 4K devices.

2. Professional quality video production designed to inspire

Cameras like the Panasonic Lumix GH4 feature an ultra-high bitrate video recording feature up to 200 Mbps without any duration limit, so you can shoot more.

And since a 4K Camera offers resolutions of up to 4096×2160, it means that you are able to capture more details per frame and can also retain a lot of that detail even when you decide to output it to a DVD or Blu Ray.

3. Expandability and flexibility

4K cameras offer much more in terms of expandability and flexibility. With features like Wi-Fi connectivity with NFC offering in-camera RAW development capabilities, professional filmmakers would find themselves more empowered to shoot scenes the way they intended.

Plus, features like a stereo camera microphone, external grip and external flash give you the option to expand your options even further.

    Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

    Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

    Does technology have all the answers?

    This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

    Creating technological solutions transparently

    This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

    Technology as the connecting tool

    Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

    “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
