2.7K in FDR X3000

Ok, i just recently got this camera and i love it.

 

The one thing that i miss a lot though, is the 2.7K resolution at 60fps that every other camera i owned had.

It's a resolution much better than 1080p as far as clarity goes but without the hard time of post processing like 4K.

 

I am sure that sony can incorporate that with a firmware update and it's strange that they didn't put that at the first place.

 

Do we know if sony plans something like that ?

Re: 2.7K in FDR X3000

From what I know there are no plans to add this resolution.

Since most people would use it for stabilizing in post production anyways, you can simply go with the active stabilized 1080p.

Since the 1080p 60fps on the X3000 has a higher bitrate than the competing products, you can even export the video as 1440p and there is close to no difference between that and native 1440p recorded on other cameras.

Τhanks for the answer.

 

Except for the stabilization process, the other thing you could do in 2.7K, was to zoom your shot, without loosing quality.

You could do the shot in 2.7K in wide angle (using a large portion of the sensor, thus better quality) and then in post, you could zoom in with the final result being practically of the same quality as if you shot at 1080p at the first place.

 

Now if you zoom in posta with a footage of 1080p the picture quality will degrade significally.

Re: 2.7K in FDR X3000

If you film in 1440p, there is not really that much you can zoom, when you still want to export in "real" 1080p.

So I personally wouldn't take that as a real argument for 1440p.

If you bring the same argument up in a discussion about 2160p, where I can zoom in 200%, I let it count, but not when we are talking about 1440p.

(note: this is my personal opinion)
