Need to Send Large 4K Video Files?
Use MASV to send terabytes of data with unparalleled speed.
4K Video File Sizes by Camera
- We’ve gone with 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, as opposed to DCI 4K (4096 x 2160). The former is the dominant resolution for television and consumer media production.
- We’ve also used a 30fps frame rate in most cases, unless specified otherwise.
- We’ve provided numbers for a few different codecs (and video formats) specific to the camera where appropriate.
- We’ve converted all file sizes into the decimal form of gigabytes (here’s the difference if you’re not sure).
- super-slow mo;
- sensor shift stabilization;
- RGBW sensors;
- and even AI and machine learning algorithms.
|iPhone 13 (ProRes)||5.5GB|
|Google Pixel 6 (H.264)||360MB|
|Samsung S22 (H.264)||360MB|

DSLR Video Cameras
DSLRs are delicate machines that include a bunch of different components, including:
- A reflex mirror
- Removable lens
- Image sensor
- Focusing screen
- Condenser lens
- Optical viewfinder
Here’s a sampling of the estimated one-minute 4k video file sizes of some of the leading DSLRs on the market:
Canon and Nikon
|Canon EOS 90D(MP4 H.264)||900MB|
|Canon EOS 5D Mark IV (MJPEG)||3.8GB|

Mirrorless Video Cameras
Mirrorless cameras (also known as compact system cameras, or CSCs) look like DSLRs. They’ve got a similar-looking body. They’ve got detachable lenses. Indeed, most of us probably couldn’t tell the difference between the two at first glance.
But mirrorless cameras are different. The reason being, they don’t have the reflex mirror and some other components we mentioned in the DSLR section. Instead, mirrorless cameras operate with a lens, shutter, image sensor, and digital display (instead of a viewfinder).
Some estimated one-minute video file sizes of popular mirrorless cameras:
Fujifilm, Panasonic, Nikon
|Fujifilm X-S10 (MPEG H.264)||1.5GB|
|Panasonic Lumix S1H (422 Long GOP)||1.2GB|
|Panasonic Lumix S5 (H.264 Long GOP)||1.1GB|
|Nikon Z5 (25fps)(MPEG H.264)||1.1GB|
|Nikon Z9 (H.265 10-bit)||1.4GB|
|Nikon Z9(H.265 8-bit)||1.1GB|
