With 4K Ultra HD TV becoming the norm in the recent years, making 4K footage with camcorder, DSLR, action camera or mobile phones, and browsing UHD videos from video sharing sites also turn in to more popular and pretty common. But as much as 4K has brought us great pleasure, it has also created bigger problems.
