The Codec Conundrum

NextWaveDV – The Codec Conundrum:
H.264, RAW, uncompressed, 4K, bit rate, color space… Chances are you’ve seen all these terms and many more listed in the specs of various cameras and on the pages of flaming debates on numerous forums. The truth is, the codec that your camera shoots to will be either its Achilles’ heel or its saving grace. It will either limit your shooting style and color grade or open up a world of options. My goal with this article is not to explain what all the terms mean, but rather discuss what you should be most concerned with as a shooter.
