Re: A basic video question

The 4K or 6K photo modes of Panny indeed produces a MP4 as the end product. We don't need to export the frame from the footage.

It has a flexibility to use any still shooting aspect ratio so is the 4:3.

Since 4K/6K photo modes are originally to capture the motion, it is usually not subjected to the usual 180 degree shutter rule ( says, 1/60" for 30fps etc). Therefore usually the MP4 would be choppy on playback, not smooth as those regular video shooting under/close to 180 degree rule. Hence, as long as we apply similar shooting parameters using in usual video shooting, the footage from 4K/6K photo mode could be the same as shooting in regular video shooting mode. I saw many members in fact use that 6K photo mode footage as 6K video. 😀

The issue is currently the playback media, TV or the software would default the video aspect ratio to 16:9, any footage if not shoot under 16:9, upon playback, would have dark bars (would not auto crop like the older format) making it not very nice. So, even you prefer 4:3, might have to consider your client would like to have a non 16:9 video...
