If you’ve been paying attention to the world of Apple, you likely know the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus shoot 4K video. While it seems like overkill, just watch this video and decide for yourself.

The film was made by AmnesiArt, a studio in France that produces film and photography. While I’ll concede they’re professionals, and likely have setups most of us won’t have access to, but there’s no denying 4K is pretty awesome.

Perhaps what’s really special is that the video represents that the threshold for anyone to create 4K is now much lower; the iPhone 6s definitely wasn’t first to 4K, but it’s probably the biggest move forward for amazing user-generated video.

I’ve openly questioned the need for an iPhone that shoots 4K video, but this video makes me a believer. Who wouldn’t want amazing video like this while on vacation, or when shooting special moments in life?
