Viewed on the YouTube app on my IPad, the max resolution is 1080p. Clicking on a YouTube link on an IPad automatically opens the YouTube app. That’s the default operation for IPads.
With that said, the video was still beautiful in HD on the Ipad’s small screen. I’ll watch it later in 4K on my 77” screen which I’m sure will be a very different viewing experience. I’m surprised it wasn’t shot in HDR.
Im sure discussions regarding 8K will be interesting, since many insist they already can’t see the difference between HD and 4K at typical viewing distances. So if we are already approaching the limit of normal human visual perception with 4K, how much more will 8K or 16K bring to the table in terms of detail?
This is why many in the video community insist that HDR has more visual impact than going from HD to 4K. As much of an advocate of high resolution as I’ve been, after doing a lot of shooting in HDR, I’d tend to agree.
