Japanese site Nikkan is reporting that the Fuji GH5 is to come with 6K video. If true, this is very exciting and completely ridiculous. We’re only just getting used to 4K, and even most of that is being downsampled to 1080p. So, why might one need a 6K camera? Well, as more and more 4K TVs get into the homes of the general public, we’re eventually going to need to deliver 4K content.
Shooting 6K footage for 4K delivery will increase quality. Just as shooting 4K today and scaling down to 1080p provides a better result than simply shooting 1080p. It also provides extra options in post for panning & zooming, or stabilising footage. But, is it too good to be true?
