Video filesize calculator

Frame file size

  • Megapixels: 8.3 MP (8,294,400 pixels)
    width in pixels x height in pixels
  • Aspect ratio: 1.78
    width in pixels / height in pixels
  • Uncompressed monochrome frame (Bayer masked): 12.4 MB (8.3 MP x 12 bit/pixel)
  • Uncompressed RGB 8-bit frame: 24.9 MB (8.3 MP x 3x8 bits/pixel)
  • Uncompressed RGB 16-bit frame: 49.8 MB (8.3 MP x 3x16 bits/pixel)

Video bitrate

  • Picture size: 3840 x 2160
  • Framerate: 24 fps
  • if the same bit encoding and (lack of) video compression would be used as the one for ...compression strength (size)then the bandwidth for the video size you specified, would be
