When my niece bought a digital camera, I noticed that she is not using the maximum setting for the resolution. Her camera is 12 megapixels but her resolution is only equivalent to 6 megapixels. Her reason for that is storage that a high resolution photo takes a lot of storage. That made me think because why buy an expensive 12 mp camera when your intention is to use only 6 mp? With the video, it's practically the same. Set it to the maximum format of HD to get the best of your camera. Don't just settle for the broadcast standard of 480 x 640 pixels.
