Don't settle for less than HD
Video: Some real estate
photographers apply a pan and zoom effect to a slide show of
images, upload it to YouTube and call it HD Video. Animated slide shows
are not HD Video, and actually perform a disservice as the
only sees part of the
image during the animation instead of the whole, original image. A
straight forward slideshow of images is far more effective than one
animated with a scrolling
pan and zoom effect. Note that Video is defined by Wikipedia as, "an
electronic medium for the recording, copying and broadcasting of moving
visual images". Wikipedia.
