Apple approves $999.99 app that allows the Apple iPhone 5s to shoot 4K video
Apple has just signed off on a $999.99 app for the App Store. Available only for the 32GB and 64GB Apple iPhone 5s running on iOS 7, the Vizzywig 4K allows you to capture, edit and distribute 4K video. If you spend the money to purchase this app, by all means do not update your iPhone 5s to iOS 8 at this point. The reason has to do with the "Burst Mode" on iOS 8, which takes pictures at 10 images per second, and does not meet the requirements for the app.

The reason that the "Burst Mode" is so important, is that the 4K videos being captured by Vizzywig 4K are really a series of 4K photographs being shot at 24 images per second. Stitching these photos together creates a 4K video, and allows you to access and edit each individual frame. The app also comes with the ability to create title slides, scrolling credits and transition effects. Audio is recorded separately and synced later with the video.

The developer behind the app, i4software, says that it hopes the iOS 8 "Burst Mode" limit will get fixed in future builds of the OS, which will allow buyers to update to iOS 8. If you're really, really, really that determined to have 4K video capabilities on your iPhone 5s, start reaching for your credit card now.

Hmmm, Should I buy this app or a Video Camera instead? or a phone that's 4k ready and no app needed.

There is one odd part in the news, as always. The burst mode is 10 FPS (10 frame per second) so how comes the video is finally 24 ? If the video is 10 FPS this app is a big NO.

That is why you can't use iOS 8 with it.

You can also buy last year's galaxy note 3. It's also capable of 4k video without any app/modification.

you got this wrong: is not about the need to record in 4k, is about the need of recording with the iPhone in 4k: you have already the iPhone and what can you do? ditch it and buy an Note 3? Oh no my friend, you spend more to bring more value to your (already high) investment.

Just imagine leaked nude movie from your Note3, is not the same as the one from iPhone.

It's articles like this that reaffirm why we all pick on Apple's ecosystem lol. You could buy a near professional camera that will take much better video quality than that phone or a capable Android flagship for cheaper that already supports all the proper hardware and lib files for this sort of quality and still have several hundred dollars to blow.

Really really dont care for 4K at the moment... If I did, you can buy a professional video camera for fraction of the cost... The only customers they will find for this are those RollsRoice and thow fashion show videographers that use iPhones and iPads to shoot a promo - and they have lots of money...

As far as me and the rest of the world, the 4K on a cellphone is a huge hype and only used as a pawn in a fanboy argument. Shooting videos with that fills up all your memory and every SD card you can bring for a few moments of video - no thanks... maybe in the future though when we have Terabytes on our cellphones and Data transfer rates and limits are at least 10 times of today...

As much as I like to hate Apple and rag on iDiots, I really doubt anybody will actually purchase this app.

it's a bait. for sure somebody stupid enough will get it. the app developer makes some money without any consideration if the app will eventually destroy the iphone 5s internals. even quad cores with 3GB RAMs and bigger bodies for better heat dissipation struggle with 4K. what makes a normal person think that an app will make the iphone 5s a capable 4k shooter?

It's hardware still isn't as up to par anyway. And this is a third party solution, not integrated on a hardware or software level.

Hell, you could buy two Moto X (2014) for the price of that app and get the best that Android has to offer along with 4k video.

There has to be some serious physics bending work behind this, no wonder the price.

Recording 4K video on iPhone is impossible on 8 megapixels.... Till now.
