When it comes to high definition, former heavyweight 1080p HD is starting to look like yesterday's news as the resolution race continues to ratchet up ever-increasing numbers -- some of which are apparently now attainable from the iPhone.
Developer Hassan Uriostegui has released a new, universal camera app called Ultrakam, which claims to be able to record video at 2K film resolution, capturing 70 percent more pixels than standard 1080p HD.
Ultrakam sounds like a pretty impressive accomplishment based on specs alone, including the ability to capture 24fps video at 2240 x 1672. But the developer didn't stop there, packing in high-quality time-lapse at custom intervals, 10x slow-motion and switching between H.264 and M-JPEG for a nearly uncompressed experience.
The app isn't just a way to capture 2K video, either -- Ultrakam also allows iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners to keep a gallery of high-definition videos on their device and play them while on the go in a resolution higher than the Retina Display can even show.
Using your iPhone to record video and don't want to disrupt the screen to change settings? The developer also offers a Bluetooth Remote Control companion app for Ultrakam, which allows users to control exposure, focus and more without ever touching the shooting device.
Ultrakam is now available for $6.99 from the App Store as a universal app which requires iOS 7.0 or later; Ultrakam Remote Control is also available for $2.99 and likewise works with the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad.
