Still frames showing the differences
The quality at 720p for the Nikon D4 and D800/D800 is far superior to full 1080 HD on a per-pixel basis, with a high impression of sharpness. It sure looks like the quality plus the huge space savings might make 720p a superior choice for Nikon users.
The Nikon D4 is clearly inferior to the D800/D800E at 720p.
For the Canon 5D Mark III, using 720p at 60 fps with intraframe compression results in enormous files that are 8-10X larger than those from the Nikon— with no obvious quality gain. There is no 30 fps option with intraframe compression.

Diglloyd DAP is DSLR-oriented, but also contains workflow and other topics. Much of the focus is on Canon and Nikon but also Pentax and Pentax medium format.
Special emphasis is placed on lens evaluation, focusing on Canon and Nikon and Sigma lenses, but with a few others like Rokinon/Samyang.
- Make better images by learning how to get the best results right away.
- Save money by choosing the right lens for your needs the first time, particularly some of the new Sigma Art lenses vs Nikon and Canon.
- Workflow discusses image organization, raw conversion and post processing. Many examples show processing parameters for direct insight into how the image was converted.
- Jaw-dropping image quality found nowhere else utilizing Retina-grade images up to full camera resolution, plus large crops [past 2 years or so].
- Real world examples with insights found nowhere else. Make sharper images just by understanding lens behavior you won’t read about elsewhere.
- Aperture series from wide open through stopped down, showing the full range of lens performance and bokeh.
- Optical quality analysis of field curvature, focus shift, sharpness, flare, distortion, and performance in the field.
