Reply To: Use old gear or buy new


I tried to comment twice yesterday but my comments never showed up until today, see it below. The gist of my comment was that I use a Nikon coolpix B700 and a lumix FZ80 to shoot 4K video, both cameras are about $300 used on ebay. The advantage not mentioned about shooting 4K is you can zoom into the frame in an editor like Premiere Pro without loss of resolution. You can’t do that to any great extent shooting in 1080P. Regarding youtube, you get what you get. I have been posting videos for about 9 years on youtube. Some videos have less than a hundred views, some have thousands. It mainly depends on content. But I’m not sure how much it really matters. I don’t monetize my videos but if I did, it would only amount to pennies.
