Nearly impossible to tell the difference between 8K and oversampled 4K HQ. Save some hard drive space and shoot 4K HQ 170Mbps rather than 8K 680Mbps.

You’re getting the benefits of 8K without the crazy file sizes and crazy CPU Processing for your editing machine. It is so damn sharp and detailed that I hope Twitter compression doesn’t kill it. Either way you’ll see in my review https://t.co/kcwY0abvpt

I am not a video person, but I do use video once in a while.

Other than storage space, what is the advantage of downsampling 8k in camera rather than in post?

Wouldnt it create more heat in camera to process 8k into 4k HQ rather than just save it to a memory card as 8k?

Well for starters 50 minutes of 8k adds up to 1TB in the R5. So you would need some pretty expensive and massive cards to deal within storing it in the first place.

And some people have found their computers and software have issues opening and dealing with such massive video files.
