Nobody Asked for it or Wanted it: 8K Vertical (Portrait-Mode) Video!

This video was shot in portrait mode. It is not a vertical crop of a landscape video. Thus, it is full resolution viewed in portrait mode. In this case, 8K.

Portrait (vertical) video (which I do not prefer) is good for tall objects - statues, monuments and tall buildings. Both the Trade Tower and Empire State buildings are in fact in this video! And portrait mode is sometimes good for isolating individuals who are standing up. But, just a test.

The Canon RF 24-240mm lens was used. Edited in DaVinci Resolve Studio.

If you watch on your phone and view in portrait mode you will see the full resolution with no black bars. Portrait mode is used for prints - why not video?
