Slow motion is limited to 720 on most DSLRs (shooting at 60fps). For those who use DSLRs for slomo, do you find buyers prefer footage in the original 720 or the upsized 1080, which degrades the quality slightly?

I think upsizing is something the buyer can do himself. If you sell upscaled video without clearly mentioning this, it's fraud imo. People actually do this?

Up sizing is not accepted by most agencies.

It's like selling 10MP photos as 20MP. (from 720p to 1080p is also twice the amount of pixels)

Just upload it at the original size. Buyers can scale up or down as they please.  You wouldn't sell a car cover for a pickup truck that only fits a VW beetle right?   Check the list at hispeedcams.com for cameras that shoot slow motion on a budget if you need higher resolution.

I'd say send it at the source resolution.

I have a camera that shoots 120 and 240 fps at standard definition and those even sell at that resolution.

Thanks. I was wondering because I found some videos on P5 that were shot on DSLRs and being sold as 1080 full HD which seemed weird. But I also think native resolution is best for buyer.

Newer cameras can often shoot in 1080p60.

I have a question and Sony RX10 II 1824x1026 240fps if I could enlarge up to 1920x1080? Is this is also a scam?

Guys relax with this moralism about uprezzing.Things are subjective in this area.
If we literally go this route then we should technically not upload anything from canon dslr cameras prior to the markIII,since the real resolution is upsampled internally and is less that 1080p.
Still canon dslr's are a huge portion of stock footage,and not only the newer ones.

1080p is no guarantee for sharpness.It describes pixel count but not detail.Resolution is subjective,and has always been.
A true 720p from from a cinema camera uprezzed to 1080p will be sharper than the 1080 of mostr dslr's and even some eng type cameras.
How about home scanning (recording with a camera rather than a true film recorder) old 8-16mm film?Is that true 1080p?Not even close if you consider the degradation.More like pal/ntsc in resolution.
Still it comes in a 1080p vessel from those who home scan their archived film.

Now since we are on the subject i dont think that anyone should uprez anything unless the quality of the video AS A WHOLE justifies this.
And 720 from a dslr rarely does.But people buy it.Go figure.

Max %5 upsizing would't be noticable if done properly. From time to time I had to do it, to make the frame look better (first zoom then up in Premiere Elements).
