Been Playing with my X5 Camera some more. I cannot figure why 1080p looks so good and my 4k looks terrible.
I shot a scene while sitting on the table same exposure on both. seems 1080p looks to be sharper, clear and more in focus..didnt change a thing except video format from 1080p to 4k. I'm Stumped

4k has 4x the pixels of 1080p hd yet..
4k is recorded at 60MBs & 1080p at 40MBs.... Really 4k should be 160MBs
I have yet to try 1080p but but will try that tomorrow. The stills are great but 4k is a little detail lacking. Colour is great.

And that is why advertising these cameras as 4k ready. Is a half false
Then they tell us but you don't really need 4k it's great in 1080p.

I have the same problem inconsistency with focus ... the X5 does not hold its focus between 4k & 1080 & photo....i had my focus set ok doing video,(1080 was the sharpest) changed to photo mode and bam the focus went out... also have you noticed that 24 & 30fps is cropped when compared to 48 & 60fps.... why is that..?.

I shoot in 4K all the time. I do manual focus and camera controls. Nothing is auto. This is not an X3. I have three lenses that I use. It is an extension of my GH4 on the ground.

My findings show that properly focused 4K from the x5 definitely have more detail than 1080. A good amount (when viewed on a 4K or 5k display; and look anazing down scaled on a 4K display). Care has to be taken on focus with this camera. Like Ed said, it's like a flying GH4.
