What is an 8K Camera?

An 8K camera is the general term used to describe a display resolution of 7680×4320 pixels. It means four times as much detail as 4K (3840x2160 pixels) and sixteen times more detail than 1080p (1920x1080 pixels). In other words, full HD is offered by this resolution. This means that your videos are incredibly sharp, enabling excellent playback on large displays and offering incredible detail, even at close range. Shooting in 8K resolution is ideal for professionals and content creators looking to post visually striking videos on social media sites, where high-quality videos make a significant impact.

In essence, 8K displays have a lot more pixels per square inch, which translates to a crisper and more detailed image. To visualize it, consider an ordinary HD image as a mosaic made up of 2.07 million tiles. 8.29 million tiles would be enough to generate a 4K image, while an unbelievable 33.18 million tiles will be needed to generate an 8K image. The higher the number of pixels, the more intricate details can be experienced on the screen.
