Re: 4k 3D macro frame from video

I would be interested in seeing your high res video frame.

I would guess the Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K would would produce video at that resolution.

My two Panasonic TZ80 cameras don't do a very good 4k. The image seems soft , but then it is a low cost consumer camera. Here is an example of each TZ80 recording at 4K 30fps and the footage aligned using Davinci Resolve and output at 4K 30fps. Taken using my rig on a windy day.


I could upgrade by using two Sony RX100vi cameras. They would fit on my rig quite well and they are not too heavy.  They can zoom to 200mm (35mm equiv ) which with my close-up lens would give good macro results. I think if I recorded on each camera at 4k there would be a reasonable improvement to what I get on the Panasonic TZ80 at 4K. Its all a question of spending money. They are around £600 each on ebay ( used ).

I am not into VR so better resolution is not so important to me.
