Over the past few months I have really tried to integrate more and more video into my online marketing plan. I wrote about my recent purchases of the Kodak Playtouch and all the accessories that I purchased to go along with it. However, once I pulled the camera out of the box and shot my first video, I must admit I wasn’t blown away by the resolution. I figured that if I wanted the absolute best quality video on YouTube that I needed to shoot it at 1080P which was one of the options available inside my camera.
To me, highest resolution meant best possible quality. Well, not exactly. So, I set off on testing all the different resolution options to find which was the best option. Below is a simple video I shot in my office. Each scene has all the exact same variables, the only thing different was that I changed the resolution setting inside the Kodak Playtouch.
To my surprise, what I found is that it appears that either setting the resolution to 720HD or 720HD @ 60 frames per second delivered a much higher quality video. So, if you have the Kodak Playtouch and are looking to get the best quality video to share on YouTube, you may want to play with your resolution settings.
