Ubuntu Phone: Enable the ability to film 4K UHD video on 8.5-megapixel or greater mobile cameras

Registered by Kenny Strawn on 2013-01-03

Given that 4K UHD video is essentially the equivalent of an ~8.29-megapixel still image and that most mobile cameras in 2012 to begin with were already 8 megapixels, the cameras in 2013 and beyond will most certainly only increase in resolution. So, as the still image resolutions increase, so also should the video resolutions to match it. And the still image resolutions should easily exceed 8.5 megapixels in 2013 and beyond, perhaps going as high as 9 or 10 megapixels, making 4K video recording most certainly possible.
