Is 4K Video Worth It?

It seems like every camera being released these days that shoots video has the option for 4K capture. But as we all know, shooting and editing in 4K brings with it some extreme hardware and storage requirements that make it quite expensive to do on any sort of regular basis.

The guys over at Linus Media Group just released this excellent video in which they took a look at 4K video and discussed if it is ‘worth it’. If you shoot video, upload to YouTube, or are just interested in what goes into producing 4K content, then this is a video you will want to check out.

What did you think of the results and LMG’s conclusions? This is some very interesting information that we will for sure be taking a look at more closely regarding our own YouTube uploads and video creation going forward.

Zeiss Batis OLED Tutorial

One of the coolest new things about these new Zeiss Batis lenses is the new OLED display. But as we reported a while back, its controls were confusing some users and causing them to think their display had gone out (when in reality they had turned it off).

So to try and help eliminate this issue, Zeiss has put together this great little demo on the new OLED displays and how to properly change their settings. It’s a must watch if you have or are getting one of these new Batis lenses, and is also pretty interesting if you don’t have one because the tech is pretty neat.
