So I had a thought today about file sizes and their relationship to one another. Say I want to output 1080p, 16:9. What is the better route, 5KHD with a higher compression rate or 4KHD with a lower rate? I'm thinking of two things here, one, which is going to provide the better quality and two, which would provide the smaller file size?
All things being somewhat equal, would a higher resolution image that was compressed greater be better than a lower resolution image with less compression? Reason why I'm asking is file management. If I'm out in the woods somewhere with a limited amount of storage space, which gives the best image for the file space available? Is this making any sense whatsoever?
