4K GoPro footage on Ipad Pro

Dear all,

Here is my problem : I use my GoPro 8 for scuba diving (before i was on GoPro 7). Until now I was always shooting in 1080p, then I import the footages on my IPad Pro and mount short movies on LumaFusion.

Recently I decided to try to film 2,7k and 4K footages. Even if my final clip might be 1080p , I wanted to try 2,7K and 4K so I can crop /zoom / stabilize afterwards keeping STIHL an HD quality.


problem : Before trying underwater i made some test, filmed a box of cereal in 3 résolutions : 1080/2,7/4K , loaded the footages on my IPad via GoPro App and compared the shots... almost impossible to notice the difference... even worse : the 4K footage seems worse... It feels like when exporting with GoPro app it highly compresses 2,7K and 4K footages....

would that be possible ?

even if the Ipad pro doesn't have 4k resolution, i would expect a better definition zooming in a 4K footage then a 1080p as the ipad is around 2,2k resolution.

Any idea ?

should i import by an other way ?

did anybody imported a 4K or even a 2,7k footage ? Do you se the same behaviour ?

thanks a lot,
