Rental video tapes were acceptable quality too, under 200k pixels.
Today 4K (8.3M pix) at 10-bit per pixel color does not mean people
need it. Maybe people trade color for good optic resolution or
bandwidth reduction, etc. At least where such knobs can be made.

In a situation, you don't get a timeout to swapout full cards,
find better wifi hotspot peers, etc.


WiFi has some specs on the tin, but speeds in real

Another example of available camera modules
are inside security cameras... alibaba, ebay...
many have numerous embedded compression levels,
some TLS, ONVIF standard, ethernet power, WiFi/Cellular etc.
All from China OEMs that can custom whatever people
want for the right price. Backdoors free with all ClosedSource.

Two person teams are fairly common in the journo/activism space.

Any project would want to interview some wide ranges
of potential customers to determine / propose what
might actually be useful in a new product.
