Not even Apple’s new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus support super-sharp 4K video recording out of the box, but they do have the necessary hardware to support it. Vizzywig 4K, a new iOS app that was just approved by Apple, brings this functionality to the iPhone 5s — but it costs a whopping $999.99.

That’s right — almost $1,000 for an iPhone app. It does claim to be the world’s first 4K video app for iPhone, however, and we certainly couldn’t find a cheaper alternative in the App Store. So, let’s take a look at what you get for your cash.

In addition to the ability to record 4K video (3840×2160) at 24 frames-per-second, Vizzywig 4K also lets you edit your clips, add transitions, titles, and scrolling credits; and mix in some background music. Users can also upload their videos directly to YouTube, or save them locally and share them by other means.

Vizzywig 4K requires iOS 7 — it doesn’t yet support iOS 8 — and you must have an iPhone 5s with at least 32GB of storage to use it. If you have $1,000 to drop on an iOS app and you really, really need 4K recording on your iPhone, you can download Vizzywig 4K via the App Store link below.

Alternatively, you can take that $1,000 and invest in a proper 4K camera that’s likely to produce much greater results.
