High resolution imagery has nearly become the norm as far as shooting video and capturing pictures. This is great for a lot of reasons: quality images are better to look at, they get a better response, and, with the advent of recent camera’s, it’s no longer a necesity to purchase a pricey camera to get them. With the good comes the bad, however. Hi-res images also take more time to capture, take up more space digitally, and can frequently become a source of much frustration during the editing process.
