Almost every major camera manufacturer has implemented 4K shooting somewhere in their lines.
Perhaps most impressively, the technology has been successfully stretched over models of all billings. So, whether you’ve only got a few hundred pounds to spend or you’re willing to stretch to a handsome four-figure sum, it’s likely you can afford a camera with the technology on board.
Just because two cameras have 4K recording, however, doesn’t mean to say they’re equal. The use of different sensors and different methods of capture, together with variations in output possibilities, mean two 4K cameras can behave quite differently.
Even something as simple as whether the camera uses the full width of the sensor or applies a crop factor is vital to consider, as this has a significant effect on your effective angle of view. And all of the above is before we even consider supporting features such as headphone sockets, focus peaking, zebra patterning and Log profiles.
