Does 1080p sell significantly better/more often than 720p footage?

What sells is the largest size the customer is willing to pay for.

Unfortunately too often, that is "web size".

I wish iStock gave us access to this data. I'd like to know from my portfolio what sizes sell the most.

Click on the file thumb when you are logged in, then click on the administration link, then click on view file downloads. Voila.

You still have to go through and count by hand, which is kind of a pain in the butt. Also the stats don't tell you which version of the web sized download (HD, NTSC or PAL).

I'll do that for the 1,000's of downloads I have so far and make an Excel spreadsheet so I can get a tally.


But seriously, it'd be nice if this data was available to us producers.


But then again, alot of other things would be nice, too.

Does 1080p sell significantly better/more often than 720p footage?

Another way to put that question might be is it worth the increased memory space (if you're shooting to a card), editing/rendering time and other considerations to shoot and upload 1080P instead of 720P, in the hopes of snagging the occasional full-res sale? Absolutely.

But there are other considerations too. For example, some cameras only overcrank in 720 mode. So if slo-mo is important to the shot concept, then in that case you're better off at 720.
