    What do you plan to record with? 4K or the 8K system? I know there’s some improvements to the 8K recording I think?

    I question why anyone would want to record in 8K, purely for the issue of diminishing returns. Going from something like 720p to 1080p was pretty noticeable, especially on tv's. 720p to 1080p on a phone is almost indistinguishable, but somewhat noticeable on tv. 1080p to 4k is indistinguishable on a phone, and about the limit for a tv unless you are sitting right up on it. I doubt 8K would give any noticeable difference on a tv. I would stick with 4K to save the storage space.

    Beyond that, how many players can even playback in 8k? Most people might have 4k, I'm pretty sure not too many have 8k.

    While that maybe true, it all starts somewhere and not everyone has the latest tech all at once. I'm sure the same thing was said about 4k and 1080p and other new tech in playback and recording mediums at some point.

    I mean I still have to decide depending on what I'm recording whether to use 1080 or 4k. Nevermind 8k. A lot of Samsung features like super steady don't work on anything above 1080.

    And the highest frame rates aren't supported on 8K

    I'm going with 4K, if that. I usually use 1080 just because there isn't much noticeable difference between the two on a phone. If I plan on sharing the video, I record in 4K, and that isn't all that often.

    I expect to have an 8K screen when they become affordable, and then I'll be glad that my videos have four times as many pixels as a 4K video. Also, it can be useful to extract high-res still frames from an 8K video.

    I'm not a content creator or anything like that. I wouldn't even know what to do with 8k.

    Unless I have a specific reason to, I don't expect I will record more than 1080p. And even then it would really needed to be a good reason. Especially if I plan to edit in post processing. Some videos can take pretty damn long already on my laptop. My desktop can probably run faster, but it's been locking up lately. I had actually upgraded the video card to cut down processing times from 20+ hours to 2 hours when I post process my 4k spherical camera videos. Working with high res videos is not all it's cracked up to be.

    I bought my first 4k TV less than a year ago, prior to that I couldn't even view 4K content at home. Lol

    I wouldn't record in 8K unless you're doing so with the intention of cropping in during post to produce a 4K video. I still record a lot of my content in 1080 because most phones/computers don't have 4k screens yet and the storage requirements are insane.

    I just thought of something. The sensor is 108mp with .8 micron pixels and uses 3x3 pixel binning to create a 12mp image with 2.4 micron pixels that are more sensitive to light.

    4k video resolution is a little over 8mp while 8k resolution is is over 33mp.

    While shooting 8k video the sensor is unable to pixel bin as the resolution would drop below what's needed to record in 8k, but 4k will be able to pixel bin allowing it to be more sensitive to light.

    Essentially if there isn't enough light while recording video, the 4K will actuall come out looking better and more detailed while the 8K becomes grainy and noisy in comparison.

    I'd wait till its release to pass judgement.

    4k recordings are all over YouTube and I would say that there is a noticeable difference when viewing on my 4k monitors as well as 4k TVs vs. 1080p videos. Bit rate obviously plays a bit role in the quality but putting that aside, 4k videos are everywhere.

    8k recording also permits you to be able to crop video and still maintain a 4k resolution, for example.

    Will do some testing for sure and see the difference. All depends on the best quality for me although i don’t tend to make many videos

    Nothing wrong with shooting some 8K of your kids and other important stuff, it is only a matter of a few years and we'll all have 8k screens to view it.

    Not only that but there's also the matter of capturing action. I used 4K recording on my S10 Plus and then captured stills from it while my kids are playing bball or soccer. Some pretty good pictures that way!
