How to choose a camera?

For any video enthusiast, one of the most difficult choices is a camera. These cameras are almost perfect, but cost a fortune. With the proliferation of videography, many video cameras have been created that are capable of shooting video, for all budgets. It is important to know certain criteria before choosing. Here are some technical criteria that will help you choose the best one.  


The resolution of an image is nothing more than the number of pixels per inch it holds. The higher the resolution of the image, the more detailed it is. You can find Enlaps generation cameras on this site. The standard resolution (number of pixels) of modern cameras is Full HD (1080p), but 4K (3840p) is becoming increasingly popular but is not yet an industry standard. Shooting in 4K produces a more detailed image and offers the ability to enhance it in post-production. Note that 4K files are large and require powerful computers for post-production.

Frame rate

How many frames per second can a camera capture?  To achieve a slow motion effect, you need to shoot at 60 frames per second. The higher the frame rate, the slower and more detailed the slow motion effect. The more powerful the camera, the more frames per second it can capture while maintaining good image quality.  If slow motion is important to the buyer, then frame rate is the deciding factor.

Sensor size

Measured in millimeters, the sensor is the part of the camera that captures light and converts it into an image. The larger the sensor, the better the image quality, low light performance and depth of field. A laptop, camcorder or drone can shoot 4K, but because of the small size of their sensors, the quality of 4K images will not be comparable to 4K images from a movie camera. Just as sensor size varies from camera to camera, it also determines the type of lens the camera can use.
