    Loving the new iPhone 8+ camera!

    The 4k at 60fps is solid recording.

    However, i tried to upload this to Youtube, but apparently it doesn't allow you to upload anything other than standard HD ?

    so it ends up 720p, 60fps.

    is this right???

    How long can you record 4k video in one session?

    Apple doesn’t support the codec YouTube uses for 4K. It prevents you from viewing 4K video on the new Apple TV. I imagine it is a similar problem when uploading.

    Are you kidding? then what use is it to record 4k ??

    My previous phone, the Samsung Galaxy S7 edge, could do 4k and up to Youtube without a problem.

    Google developed and supports the the VP9 codec, while the Apple TV supports H.264/HEVC. I imagine this has to be the reason.

    since Youtube (Google) is the one making the App on the iPhone, they might eventually update it to support this.

    but doing a quick google search, iMovie might be able to upload 4k to youtube.

    Thank you. you are right - iMovie will get it to 4k on YouTube.

    Not sure why there are such inconsistencies - but thank you for the workaround.

    Just getting adjusted back to the Apple ecosystem after being on Android for the last 6 years.

    I’m also having a hard time sending a 20 minute 4K 60fps through airdrop. I’m assuming there is a file size limit.

    Air drop shouldn't have a file size limit. The only limit is the recipients storage capacity.

    Just curious, what type of file sizes are you guys getting for you videos given a certain video length?

    4k 30 FPS or 4k 60 FPS?

    I will have to try it again because it would not Airdrop the videos to my iPad pro and it kept failing, I have done everything to try to get it to work and no dice.
