Do you use the 4K video recording mode on your iPhone 6s or 6s Plus?

With the iPhone 6s and its larger sibling the 6s Plus, Apple made its first foray in the 4K video recording universe that Android handsets have been inhabiting for a while now. As usually happens when Apple considers a technology mature enough to offer it on its handsets, the 4K video shot with the new iPhones is well-executed, with a great amount of detail, jolly colors, extremely rapid exposure adjustment, and zippy continuous autofocus...

Same here, but I'd still shoot it in 4k with the intents to eventually purchase a 4k tv.

Shutter speed is too fast for 30fps

I haven't used 4K and my brother (big Samsung lover) has never used 4K at this stage it's pointless, today is dominated by HD TVs and Computuers, so few devices around have 2k let alone 4K, it's pointless

No. I don't shoot videos in 4k. Why would I? My TV does not have a 4K screen. My laptop does not have 4K screen. And I don't use iPhone.

Well it is useful in some occasions... In my case I use it for zooming in some videos where the subject is far away...

Yes i do record 4K video on my iPhone 6s 128GB and the results are better than 1080P i made a test with my phone and i recorded a 4k video of 2 hours non stop and it was all ok, the phone did not get that hot and the battery went down from 100% to 24%! the file size was aprox 34GB so with a 64gb or 128 gb phone there are no problems with storage. Funny thing: i used my "old" galaxy s6 edge to film the clip in 720P to save space because of the 2 hour long filming but the phone got hotter that the iPhone plus it keep stoping at every 4.3gb witch is like 55 min of 720p video! and NO i did not use my galaxy s6 edge to record 4k video because it stops every 5 minutes!!! and its the 64GB version. I'm new on here so they don't let me share the link with the clip but you can google it or look it up on youtube.
