6K Drone Shooting, Do You Know 6K?

What is 6K Video?

6K Video is approximately 6,000 (6K) pixels in horizontal resolution. From the perspective of drone cameras, the 6k resolution of Autel EVO II Pro is 5472x3648. Nowadays, 4k drones are still the first choice of most drone users, but having a drone capable of 6k video recording will undoubtedly make your aerial footage more eye-catching.

Which is better, 4K or 6K?

In most drones, the biggest difference between 6k drones and 4k drones is the image sensor. The 6K drone video will have more pixels, and the shooting picture will be more detailed. The 4k image supports lossless cropping, and the image resolution is 3840x2160, while the image resolution of the 6k drone is more than twice that of the 4k image.

Does 6K video exist?

6K resolution is the standard in the film industry and is used by some television broadcasters. Therefore, 6k drones are often used for movie shooting, vlog shooting, mv publicity shooting, etc. EVO II Pro can be used as a professional 6k aerial photography drone.

Is it worth shooting in 6K?

Even at 720p or HD, you can shoot great time-lapse videos, but shooting in 6K has many advantages to consider. Not only does it make the resolution better, but it also helps and improves the overall quality of the video in many ways. Most people now know about 4K.

Is 6K video recording better than 4K?

Only in terms of image resolution, drone 6k video recording is of course better than 4k recording. 6K recordings will contain more detail for clearer viewing. But it may also be limited by factors such as the image sensor of the drone, and the bit rate of the stored video, and a good 4K recording may be better than a bad 6K recording.

Why shoot 6K video?

You may be asking yourself why would I shoot 6K video, and the answer is flexibility. Shooting in 6K gives you more pixels and more options for cropping and downscaling footage.

If you are a professional aerial photographer, you must know the importance of image resolution. 6K video cropping will never compromise the image quality, which is convenient for post-editing production.

The storage space requirement for 6K shooting is undoubtedly greater, and a 6K photo may need to occupy about 5MB in size. You will need more expensive memory with faster read and write speeds. The EVO II Pro body supports 8GB of storage, and at the same time can support an additional 256GB of expanded storage space, using a memory card to achieve.
