Resolution isn't really linked to chip size - for stills, for example, the 550D is much higher resolution than an ARRI Alexa, even though the sensors are very similar in size. You can have very high pixel density in a small chip, and very low pixel density in a large chip.How do they get 4k out of a weenie 1/2" CMOS chip?
Definitely. This is almost what the Scarlet was originally intended to be - 4K from a small chip in a smallish, fixed lens camera. The fact that it can do 60fps at 4K without any windowed sensor bullshit is a massive bonus too.Still, 60p 4K for $5,000. If you do any kind of VFX work that gives you so much to work with.
4K is four times the resolution of 2K (twice the width, twice the height)I don't know, Brian, but you'd have to think it's twice 2K (1080p), maybe more with AVCHD and 4 cards. Good question.
When scanned, 35mm film is scanned at 2k for transfer or 4k for CG/Grading work.
