4k Smart phone Camera Vs 4k on real Cameras, whats better?

Recommended Posts

+Seetheworldsecond    31

Hello, 

I recently lost my note 4 and I did not have insurance so I am going to be force to spend $500.00 on a note 5 on swappa.com with 4k, However I was wondering if I wanted better quality with 4k would the best direction be a real camera as oppose to the note 5?

 

Whats your personal experience with 4k on a camera vs smart phone?

 

Thanks!

A real camera will undoubtedly get you better quality, phones just can't handle compressing 4K video at bitrates that give the kind of quality a proper photographer would want.

a good real camera will always be better than the best phone.

sensor size... and processing will always be better in a real camera.  That said, do you really neeed 4k/ or a camera?

beware of "fraudulent" 4K smartphone, they deliver the so called "4K-output" by upscaling their lower resolution sensor data into a 4K one.

Probably because a certain group of people here tried to convince others that iPhones had as good or better video quality than DSLRs in a recent thread.
