I learned this the hard way. When a camera says it has "1080p", I was instantly impressed. I bought one, and I honestly expected Blu-ray quality out of it. The crisp details was the one I was really looking for. But when I took a video and projected it to my big screen, I was disgusted. Yes, it's 1080p but the details aren't in there. It isn't close to Blu-ray quality. It's like 480p but without the visible pixels. If you have used Lightroom, the video looks like a de-noised picture. It's smooth, but the details! I can't see the glorious details! It isn't out of focus, that's for sure.
