DSLR, 4K AND HD..... WHAT IS A PERSON SUPPOSED TO DO?
Ok, I'll answer that. It seems to me that DSLR which stands for digital single lens reflex, means nothing to you as the consumer but is significant to the professional. DSLR cameras come in the form of a regular professional camera body. An average person could not tell the difference if a camera is a DSLR or just a regular camera by looking at it. The difference between the DSLR and SLR or single lens reflex is that the DSLR can shoot High Definition video and the regular SLR camera cannot. One takes pictures only and the one one takes videos and pictures. There are companies out there that use nothing but DSLR to shoot video and of course there are companies that shoot video in Hi-def. The problem with the DSLR is that it is very, very expensive to rig up. I've seen these cameras go for $15,000.00 and over. Does it shoot a good video? Sure, it better for that price. The real problem is that according to more than a few sources DSLR video is extremely unreliable. Overheating and camera shut downs are common. That's the last thing you need when you're about to say your " I do's ". We have DSLR cameras. We use them only for photography, never for video. What about 4K? 4K means 4000 pixels.Obviously the idea here is to get higher resolution. 4K will be a true advancement in video. If you remember when Hi-def first came out everyone went out and bought HD tvs. The problem was there were only a handful of channels that broadcast in Hi-def.Therefor, most of the people who bought these televisions were watching their favorite programs in non-digital format. The same thing is happening right now with 4K. 4K tvs are flying off the shelves of retailers and people are finding the same problem as with Hi-def when it first came out. In order for 4K video to get the best resolution, a few things have to happen. First, the cable companies will have to upgrade their services which will mean an increase in your bill. Second, you will have to get a DVR that is capable of handling 4K. Blue-ray recorders are quickly falling off the map. The third thing you need if you're shooting a wedding video, the cameras being used must be 4K. If any one of these pieces are missing, your video or tv program will look just like it does now in Hi-def. So J&J video's position on this is to wait until all the pieces of this puzzle are put together. You will find the cost of the tv's and cameras will drop dramatically. 440-845-2122, J&J Video Productions-Cleveland Ohio, wedding videos-Cleveland Ohio, wedding videos-Cuyahoga County Ohio, wedding videos-Parma Ohio,
