CANON SL3

I JUST BOUGHT A CANON SL2 LAST YEAR WHICH I SELDOM USE.
WOULD IT BE WORTH IT TO TRADE IT IN TO BUY THE NEW SL3 WHICH HAS 4K VIDEO INSTEAD OF 1080P?

Please, no shouting.

I think this is a good camera but used gear is sadly not fetching anywhere what you may expect.

The still image max size is 6000 x 4000 so that's far beyond UHD 4K but for video it's only 1080p 60Hz. But that's great stuff. I continue to use 1080p to feed my UHD 4K HDTV. The upscale is great and I don't have to spend a week in production.

For me, no. But I did pick up a cheap 4K Action Camera. Guess what? I set it to record in 1080.

Thank You

Sorry about the capital letters. I hit the lock key instead of the shift and did not want to redo. I have a Kodak V1073 that is over 10 years old that still takes great pictures and good video. I bought the SL2 because it is easier on my carpel tunnel fingers. I guess there is no need to upgrade at this time. Once again, thank you.
