    I had a Note 3 and didnt use it once. Maybe I am missing out but no one can even view it at 4K levels really as of yet.

    if I have 4k I'll use it, if I don't have it I don't mind.. the "hold down camera button to take video" feature how ever is absolutely amazing! can't wait for that! :D

    There are 4K videos on Youtube, people with 4K displays can enjoy 4K videos.

    4k is not a feature I really need in my 1520. I am satisfied with 720p or 1080p.

    With 4K videos you can select any frame as a 8 megapixel picture.

    So 4K, 1080, 720.. this all not hardware (camera) related? It's interesting that update "enables" this feature

    People were complaining that they were not able to take shots during video capture and telling Microsoft to implement this feature. Microsoft has implemented this feature uniquely,while on android devices we will merely get 1.2mp(HD) shots on Lumia we will get 8.3mp shots which obviously have much more detail and are worth keeping.

    SD800 is able to capture 4k video but was not yet implemented on Lumia devices till now,but I highly doubt we will have losses zoom in 4k recording.

    Just one more tool to exploit and another reason to love my 1520.

    Which like I said not many people have right now. Still a nice option to have and future proofing but not a must and will rarely use due to storage space.

    I welcome it myself. No need to stay stagnant with technology whether you think it's useful or not. The great thing about the 1520 is that you can upgrade its storage to easily handle this enabled feature.

    I would rather record in 120fps over even 60fps then 4k video.

    A fantastic feature addition for the current top end Nokia phone.

    Personally would not use because:
    1. My family and I do not have any 4k capable playback devices not do any posting to a 4k capable video service.

    2. The concomitant battery drain and CPU heat associated with mobile phone 4k recording. The extended operating battery life of the 1520 was a critical feature for me.

    I am content to take a 25 minute 1080p video of my niece's pre-k song recital and still have plenty of battery remaining.

    I would like 120fps at reduced resolution as well. I'm sure if enough voices spoke out, Microsoft would get this going as an added feature. They've added RAW support, AptX, Dolby 5.1 capture, and now 4K. These are niche features that they are paying attention to. This is why I like the Windows Phone platform.

    I don't really think its about the 4k video resolution, my friend takes photos at wedding etc part time. He's amazed at this feature.
    He says he can walk around the guests and family filming in 4 k, then later take out 8 megapixel photos from the video. He says he now won't miss a thing, it makes things super easy. He obviously takes photos of the bride with a dslr camera but its getting to the point where he wont have too..

    Microsoft's implementation here is PERFECT!!! I have 3 small kids and learned long ago that the only way to get photographs where everyone looks okay (or at least where no one looks horrible) is to pull them off of video. I can't tell you how many times I handed a camcorder to a stranger and asked them to just point it at us, assuring the assuring the good Samaritan that it was already on and there were no buttons for her to push. I even used to have a set workflow of shooting an hour of video and pulling the good photos off that video. THAT is the intended implementation of 4K video here. You're pulling 8 megapixel stills instead of 2 megapixel stills.

    This is NOT intended to be used for regular video recording. I saw an interview with one of the Microsoft camera engineers this morning where he explained that the S800 processors could handle only a few minutes of 4K video anyway before they would overheat (precisely how long depending on ambient temperature, humidity, etc.). So no, this is not meant to shoot an hour-long recital - the hardware couldn't even handle it, and even if it could, storing and mass viewing 4K video isn't really practical in 2014. This is about pulling stills and unless I happen to catch something truly extraordinary worth archiving for a lifetime, this is how I'm going to use the feature - I'll shoot 4K only in that "please would you mind aiming the camera at us?" scenario and then delete the 4K video after pulling the desired stills.

    I'm pretty sure that the limation of being able to record only a few minutes of 4K has something to do with heat dispersion on the Lumia devices.

    Because Snapdragon 800 and above can perfectly handle 4K for extended periods of time, just look at last year's Note 3! People used to record full length 4K videos for YouTube on it.

    But your post about being able to pull off photos from 4K is one of the biggest benefits I see of 4K.

    Wish it was 30fps. 24 is a gimmick and choppy. Oh well. I probably wont use it too much. I understand 30fps would require more bandwidth though...
