If you've been shopping for a camera recently you've probably seen the term '4K video' plastered on shop displays and even written on the labels stuck on the front of products. 4K is a new video format that offers considerably higher resolution than standard HD, and even if you're not someone who's particularly interested in shooting video, you shouldn't completely ignore 4K.

We've put together a short article explaining the benefits of 4K for videographers, and why you should care about 4K video, even if you mostly shoot stills. And after 17 years of black backgrounds on DPReview, we decided to lighten up the design a little, too. Let us know what you think in the comments.
