Beyond 4K Buzz & Trends
Is 4K Over-rated?
by 4KHUB Contributor, Larry JordanI was delighted when the folks at 4KHUB asked me to contribute an article to their launch. Because I have opinions about this. You can call me a skeptic, but from my perspective, this 4K business is not the solution to world peace, nor perpetual prosperity. (And, as an aside, for this article, I’ll use the term “4K” to mean all image sizes larger than 1080p HD.)

Introducing The World to 4K
by 4KHUB Contributor, Andre ElijahEarlier this week I participated in a panel discussion regarding the history and future of 4K video production: its benefits, drawbacks, and considerations - particularly for the world of broadcast. What I found to be most interesting about the discussion is the fact that more people aren’t taking advantage of 4K or even in a position to know its pros and cons. I’ve personally been wrapped up in my own 4K bubble for years ever since the RED One was first announced.

by 4KHUB contributor, Andy ShipsidesAt AbelCine we host a number of educational events and workshops.I was surprised to discover the high level of interest in acquiring in 4K. We all know that 4K usage is growing, but to have a room full of producers in front of me saying that they are being asked by their clients to deliver 4K really said a lot. The group wanted to understand the workflow implications of acquiring in 4K and what the cost difference would be, especially in terms of storage needs and editing complexity. So the workshop veered in that direction and led to very interesting discussion topics that I thought I’d share with you.
Aerial Shoot for Panasonic & the New GH4K

I’ve been using a Canon DSLR on my midrange octocopter, but was very excited to be able to swap it out for a camera that is very close in size and weight yet shoots the higher resolution. I am most likely going to replace the Canon with the Panasonic as my default camera for that particular setup.
