4K - What makes a 4K Wedding Video so much better than standard HD?
As wedding filmmakers we always want to produce the best wedding films possible, in the best quality possible – shooting in 4K allows us to do this. Simply put, 4K is the best quality currently available, and wedding films in 4K look stunning! It’s also the perfect way to future-proof your wedding films – as 4K viewing becomes more common, standard HD is starting to show its deficiencies. As an example of the growing importance of 4K and its significance in terms of quality, major film and TV studios like Netflix will now only accept productions shot in 4K.
Wedding Videos with 4K Resolution4K has four times the pixel resolution of HD, and so your wedding film will look exceptional whether watching on your mobile or a large screen television. In addition we use advanced post production filters to smooth out skin tones and produce the most flattering look possible.
Better Quality - whether watching on a 4K or HD ScreenEven when watching a wedding video originally filmed in 4K on a standard HD screen, the quality is arguably better, this is thanks to it having a higher resolution image in the first place and downscaling. Compared to a standard HD wedding film where it is often in actuality a sub HD camera upscaled. To summarise – whether you are watching your wedding film on an HD screen or a 4K screen, a wedding film shot originally in 4K will look better!
Specialist 4K Filming Techniques for WeddingsShooting wedding videos in 4K at such high resolution on multiple cameras does have a toll on production – where the cameras are more expensive, the lenses need to be sharper, the media costs about a hundred times more and the storage requirements are huge – per wedding we now shoot on average about 4000GB which is ten times more than when we were filming in HD. But, for all the reasons mentioned here, we believe it’s well worth it to capture the very best images possible!
