Super useful chart thanks Kimberly for this side by side comparison, makes my decision much easier! One question though what is ‘video up to’ mean and can you explain what each means (ex 1080P30?) Thanks!
1080p is the number of vertical lines in a frame. The P stands for progressive (horizontally). The other letter that can be here is I, which means interlaced (vertically). 1080p is better than 720p because the more lines in the frame, the more clear the image is.
The last number, in this case 30, is the frames per second. The higher the frames per second means the motion will be more smooth and better.
So if you’re watching 1080p30 it means the scan is going horizontally with 30 frames per second. 1080i30 means the scan is going vertically with 30 frames per second.
