Or is there an advantage to using a larger sensor and say a 50mp over say a 24mp? The rules of 4K stills are the same as the rules for 4K video. Downsampled 4K from 6K or 8K will yield more detail than stills from a 4K sensor. If its line skipped 4K from 8K, then its not going to look as good. Sensor size won't impact on the resolution. 4K from a MFT camera is still 4K. A fullframe will allow for a cleaner image, as per video. I've extracted stills from the GH5, which is downsampled from 5K, and it looked a lot better than a fullframe 4K from a fullframe Canon camera where the 4K was line skipped. Obviously if you were filming 6K or 8K, the stills would be a lot better as they will be a higher resolution. However, you will need to record 6K and load that into your editing suite to extract the stills. If you downsample to 4K in edit, then extract the still, it'll show little difference to the 4K recorded on the camera. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
