I'm sure there's quite a few of you out there who know a fair bit about the latest stuff.

So, could you answer me this one then, remember you're going to reply to someone who refuses to have a mobile phone so, layman's terms please. Oh yes, the question!

If it's all so wonderful in this technological age, why can't they convert an image from a mobile phone onto T.V without all the blurry stuff?

Is this how it will always be, cause I'm sick of it already, jeez, even shows from a few years ago don't even fill the screen.

Please tell me it'll get sorted.

I don't understand your question, what is it you're wanting to do?

Depends on the user of said mobile. Despite the rapid advancement of technology, most users don't know the first thing about image resolution. My phone's camera can be set from as low as 2 megapixels right up to 20 megapixels. If you shoot at 2MP you can store more photos but the image quality is only suitable for a phone screen. Shooting at 20MP will fill your memory much quicker but the image quality will be equivalent to that of a decent point and shoot digital camera.

We have a saying at work which would probably apply in this case too. PICNIC - Problem In Chair Not In Computer.

Simply to watch the telly without either side of the screen having blurry imagery.

We've all been sold the wide screen T.V. dream, yet any archive footage older than say ten years ago has "fuzz" & when they show footage from a mobile, two thirds of the T.V. screen is obsolete.

I suppose if people filmed stuff with the phone horizontally it would help, but when people are clambering for the "money shot" the default must be to hold the phone straight up.

What are you watching that was filmed on a mobile (if I dare ask!)

How about that bloke that was dragged off the plane the other day.

With the advent of smart phones we get to see some amazing footage whereas before there would be a reporter telling us what had happened. T.B.H. if nobody had filmed the incident, it wouldn't have even made the news.

But all of that is irrelevant, my point is, in this technological age is that the best we can hope for?

Smartphones are not TV quality recording devices, and Immot sure why the quality of the coverage bothers anyone, at least it's there.

Key thing here, if I understand your queston:

TVs, computer screens, etc are landscape aspect (wide but not high), so when people film things on their phones in portrait (tall and narrow) – because that's how people hold phones – and it's shown on a landscape device like a TV, the choice is either to have black blocks either side of the image, or those blurry bits.

And someone decided the blurry stuff looks better.

(There's a video on how to do it – complete with annoying ad) here: https://youtu.be/-Ax8yUp5Ru0






Doubt everything, even this
