What is Ultra HD 4K? Well it's about 4 times that of 1080p, to be more specific it's "4096 x 2160 pixels." 

What will you need? *

1. Buy a decent home movie video camera, you know something you can get sand in at the beach, like this RED ONE camera for around $16,500 bucks (you might want to buy some lenses and accessories too, maybe an extra $10,000).
