Looking at the specifications for the Canon Rebel SL3 on B&H: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1485098-REG/canon_3453c001_kit_eos_rebel_sl3_dslr.html/specs

Under Recording Modes it states:

UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) at 23.976p/25p [120 Mb/s]

But under External Recording Modes it States a higher resolution:

DCI 4K (4096 x 2160) at 23.976p/29.97p

I understand potentially handling a higher frame rate on external recording because the camera can't "keep up"; but can external recording really have a higher resolution?

So, I have two questions:

  1. Is the above actual accurate for the SL3?
  2. Is this a common thing that you can actually get a higher resolution on external recording than you can on internal recording?
