Cameras on smartphones have gotten a lot better in the past few years. We ve also seen video recording on smartphones take a huge leap. Besides just increasing the resolution, there are tons of features that have been added, one of them being slow-motion video recording.

Slow motion video recording is possible when the camera shoots a video with high frame-rates, and plays it back at normal speeds. While initially, this feature was available at lower resolutions, smartphones today are capable of doing it at HD and Full HD resolutions, to showcase maximum detail in the fastest of scenes. Slow motion video recording is available on most smartphones today, but here are 10 smartphones that we think are best at it.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium

The Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium comes with a dual-rear camera setup, which consists of a 19-megapixel primary sensor paired with a 12-megapixel monochrome sensor. There are tons of features supported, and thanks to the Motion Eye primary sensor, the camera can shoot 960fps videos at full HD resolution. That comes down to stretching 0.2 seconds worth of action into approximately six seconds. Being Full HD means you get crystal clear detail in your videos as well. If that s too fast for you, there is also a 120fps mode available.

Samsung Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+

One of the biggest upgrades the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ have over their successors from last year, is Super Slow motion recording. Both smartphones can shoot 960fps videos at HD resolution to capture maximum detail. The camera can only take slow motion videos in bursts of 0.2 seconds. However, it is smart enough to detect motion and enable it at the right time. This means that you never miss a detail. You can also take multiple slow-motion shots in the same video.

Huawei P20 Pro

Huawei P20 Pro is currently one of the best smartphones in terms of photography. Its triple rear camera setup currently holds the highest score on DXOmark. In addition to its excellent camera performance, the P20 Pro also features slow-motion video recording at 960fps in 720p. You can also switch the mode to 120fps (1080p) or 240fps (720p) depending on your preference, and the situation at hand.

Sony Xperia XZ1 and XZ Premium

The Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ premium carry more or less the same features as the XZ2 Premium, but without the secondary black and white 12-megapixel sensor. Both phones have the 19-megapixel Motion eye camera that comes with an aperture of f/2.0. The smartphones can capture super slow motion video at 960fps in 720p. The video is only limited to 0.18 seconds, but there is predictive capture available, which lets you capture spectacular detail in every scene.

Google Pixel 2 XL

The Google Pixel 2 XL comes with only a single 12-megapixel camera at the back. Yet it not only clicks great images, but can also record 120fps slow motion videos in 1080p. With that, it is also known for better video stabilization and accurate focusing.

OnePlus 6

The dual-rear camera feature on the OnePlus 6 can take some great pictures and videos. When it comes to slow motion video recording, the camera can record a 480fps video at 720p for a full minute. There is also a choice to reduce the frame rate to 240fps, while increasing the resolution to 1080p. There is no hassle of triggering the mode. You can simply go to the video editor, and choose what section of the video you want to slow down.

Apple iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus

Slow motion video recording has always been a strong suite of Apple iPhones right from the beginning, when the feature was introduced with the iPhone 5S. Now the latest smartphones from the company, iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone 8 feature slow motion video recording of 240fps at 1080p. The video editor app also makes it easy to choose the part of the video you want to slow down. You can even adjust the frame rate to 120fps if you like. On the flipside, all three iPhones even let you record 4K videos at 60fps with no trade-off in quality.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8, Galaxy S8, Galaxy S8+

Although Samsung s 2017 flagships can t compete with the 960fps of the Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S9+, they can still shoot slow motion footage at 240fps in HD resolution, which is pretty significant. Not to mention all smartphones are all-rounders when it comes to camera performance. They can shoot 4K videos, and also have optical image stabilization. The Galaxy Note 8 also features 2X optical zoom, thanks to its dual-rear camera setup.

HTC U12+

HTC U12+ hasn t quite launched yet, but is already creating a lot of buzz, especially in the photography department. The phone currently stands second on DXOmark with a score of 103. It s 16-megapixel and 12-megapixel cameras at the back can not only shoot great images, but can also record 1080p videos at 240fps. Faster autofocus and 2X optical zoom should help those videos look even more detailed.

Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force comes with dual 12-megapixel cameras at the back. Besides exceptional pictures in Bokeh mode, the camera can also shoot slow motion videos at 240fps in HD resolution. The Moto Z2 Force is also known for its accurate color reproduction, detail and noise performance.

Too bad, we can’t slow our lives down to take a breath and enjoy the moment. Too bad, we can’t do the same with videos… Oh, wait! Actually, we can!

This is a simple question and I am really frustrated with this. I have a normal video (portrait) and I want to convert to slow motion, but when I click “EDIT”, I do not have that option.

I tried iMovie for iPhone and it cuts the header of the video (. ). If the video was shot in Slow Motion I could convert it to normal, but with a normal video I can’t convert it to slow motion? Whats going on here?

Slow motion requires recording at a higher frame rate than normal, then playing it back at a normal setting. You can’t do the reverse; if you try to view a normal video in slow motion it will be very jerky, as the frames will jump from one to another, so it will appear as a succession of still images rather than a continuous video.

I know the difference between slow motion video and all that. That’s not my question. My question is iMovie convert normal video to slot Motion, but cuts the header of the video. This is not about the the frames of slow motion vs normal video.

Jul 1, 2016 8:13 AM

Hi, if you want to convert video to slow motion, the frame rate of the video will be smaller. In fact, it is absolutely available to convert normal video to slow motion. First, you need to transfer your video to computer and then you can try to use movie maker, free online video editor or other programs to convert the speed of video.

i have a normal video which i have been trying to convert into slow motion from third party apps but the thing is they dont provide that quality which iphone slow mo videos do. The converted videos are either blurry or say not smooth.

Oct 29, 2016 9:57 PM

See my post above. When you record for slo-mo, the frame rate is much higher than normal. When you play back at normal speed the extra frames fill in the missing information. But when you start with a normal video and convert it to slow motion there is a big gap from each frame to the next. The converter attempts to guess what happened between frames and fill it in, but it will never be as good as an original recorded in slow motion with its higher frame rate. This is a limitation due to the laws of optics and has nothing to do with the iPhone.

You can use any number of 3 party apps to accomplish this.

I use Speed Pro, because it’s free. You can slow down or speed up your videos.

It is not the same quality and silky smooth results as the native iphone app, but it will do what you need it to.

Follow these tips to capture that perfect slow motion clip with your iPhone.

What is slow motion, or Slo-mo, on iPhone camera?

Shooting a slow motion video with your iPhone simply means slowing down the frame rate so that time appears to be moving at a slower rate within the video. It is a common effect used by filmmakers to create unique video clips of athletic footage, nature scenes, or scenes containing a lot of intense action. All iPhones, starting with the 5S model, support slow motion videos, and the feature just keeps getting better and more robust with each new model.

How slow is iPhone slow motion?

The normal viewing speed on an iPhone is 60 frames per second (FPS). All iPhone models have the ability to shoot slow motion videos at 120 FPS, which is one-half normal speed. iPhone models powered by an A11 Bionic chip or newer (iPhone 8 and up) have the ability to shoot at 240 FPS, which is one-quarter normal speed.

Shooting slow motion with an iPhone

You will find that shooting slow motion videos with your iPhone is addictive and fun, adding drama to a variety of scenes. You are only limited by your creativity! Here is a step-by-step guide for shooting slow motion with an iPhone, no matter what model you currently own.

How to adjust Slo-mo settings on iPhone

The first step to shooting awesome slo-mo videos with your iPhone is making sure you have the correct settings adjusted. As mentioned earlier, the FPS and HD quality of your video will depend on the model of your phone. Here is how to adjust your camera’s settings to shoot slo-mo video on iPhone.

  2. Tap Camera.
  3. Tap Record Slo-mo.
  4. Choose the appropriate FPS, based on your camera’s model, and the HD and FPS desired for your clip.

  4. Tap one more time to stop recording.

Editing slow motion videos

Using your iPhone to shoot unique scenes in slow motion is only the beginning, of course. Once you have played around with the slow motion feature, you will undoubtedly want to start editing your clips to meet the needs of your video. We have a few tips for changing the speed of your slow motion video so you can use it anywhere.

How to turn an iPhone slow motion clip into a regular video

Whether you accidentally recorded your video in slow motion or decided after-the-fact that you would rather have your video in real time, it is easy to adjust by using the Photos app on your iPhone.

  1. Open your Photos app and navigate to the slow motion video that you want to speed up.
  2. At the bottom of the screen, you will see a slider showing where your video changes from regular speed to slow motion. Drag the small white line on the left across the slider until all of the slow motion areas have been changed to regular speed.
  3. You can get rid of all of your slow motion effects or just a portion by moving the sliders in either direction.
  4. When you’re happy with the results, tap Done.

How to change a normal video to slow motion

Now let’s go the other way. If you want to change your normal video to slow motion, you can do it in iMovie. Here’s how.

  1. Open iMovie and tap the + icon to start a new project using your video.
  2. Tap Edit to open the edit screen.
  3. On the editing timeline, hold down on the part of the video that you want to slow down. If you want to slow down the entire video, drag your finger across the whole timeline until it is highlighted in yellow.
  4. On the bottom of the screen, tap the speed adjustment icon. (It looks like the speedometer on a car.)
  5. Drag your finger across the slider to choose the speed of your clip, ranging from one-eighth to double the current speed.
  6. Tap Play to view your video, and when you’re satisfied with the results, tap Done.

How to speed up or slow down a video on iPhone?

You can speed up or slow down your video with iMovie by following the steps outlined above. However, you can’t make the slow motion portion of your clip slower than the frame rate capabilities of your iPhone.

When you open your slo-mo video in iMovie, you will see where your clip starts to slow down at the bottom of the timeline. If you hold your finger on the portion that you want to change, the speed slider will show you how fast or slow your video is playing. If your slow motion video is already playing at one-eighth speed, you won’t be able to slow it down further. You can, however, speed it up by moving your finger to the right on the speed slider.

Using a third-party app to speed up or slow down your video on iPhone

While you can certainly speed up and slow down your videos in iMovie, there are some limitations. For more control over the speed of your slow motion video, try a third-party app like Slow Fast Motion Video Editor, which is available on the App Store.

With the Slow & Fast app, you can choose to slow down parts of your video and speed up other parts. Start by trimming your video into clips. Then, for each clip, choose from −8x to +8x speeds. This is a simple and effective way to make your slo-mo videos slower or faster than what is available in your Camera app.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

Slow motion videos are great for showing action and telling stories, and they are fun and easy to shoot. You are only limited by your time and creativity.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

Slow motion video recording is one of the coolest features on the iPhone. Here’s how to use it.

The camera in the latest iPhones (and especially the iPhone X) is incredibly good. For slow motion video recording, it’s actually significantly better than many DSLRs.

On the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X, you can record 1080p video at either 120 or 240 fps. On the iPhone 7, you get 1080p at 120 fps and 720p at 240 fps. To select which setting you want to use, go to Settings > Camera > Record Slo-mo.

Recording Slo-Mo Videos

Open your iPhone’s camera app and select Slo-Mo from the selector. You can also just swipe right twice. Slo-mo only works with the rear camera, so sadly you can’t start planning dramatic slow motion selfie videos.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

Recording slo-mo works like recording any regular video. Just tap the record button and point your phone at the subject to start; when you’re done, tap the record button again.

One thing to note is that slow motion videos take up a lot of space (in the region of 300MB to 500MB per minute of video). If you’re low on storage space, you should make sure not to record in slo-mo for too long. Similarly, you should only really use slo-mo to record things that need it.

Editing Slo-Mo Videos

By default, when you record a slo-mo video, the start of the video is regular speed, the middle of the video is in slow motion, and the end returns back to regular speed. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and the default video will perfectly capture what you want, but most of the time you’ll need to edit it.

Find the slo-mo video you want to edit in the Photos app and then tap the “Edit” option at the top right.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

Let’s break down the editor interface. At the top you’ve got the Video Preview (1). Beneath it, you’ve got the Slow Motion Timeline (2), and the Video Timeline (3). You’ve also got the Cancel, Play, and Done buttons along the bottom.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

The Slow Motion Timeline controls which bits of the video are in regular speed and which are in slow motion. The area of the timeline where the tick marks are close together (at the outer edges in the image above) are where it’s in regular speed; the widely spaced tick marks indicate slow motion.

To adjust which sections of the video are in slow motion, tap and drag on the small handles between the regular and slo-mo areas. Use the video preview to dial things in until you’re happy.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

Quite often, when you record a slo-mo video, you’ll end up with areas at the start or end that you don’t want. This is where the Video Timeline comes in. Tap and drag at either edge to shorten the clip from the start or end. Again, use the preview to make sure things are as you want them.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

When you’ve got the slow motion effect the way you want it, tap the “Done” button, and then the “Save as New Clip” button to save your edited version back to your Camera Roll.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

The edited version becomes a new video, and does not replace the original.

Going Further

The iOS Photos app is great for making simple edits, but if you want more control over how slow the slow motion is (or want to have more than one section of the video appear in slow motion), you need to use a third-party app.

We love Slow Fast Slow, which is a totally free app, unsupported by ads. The apps developers, Studio Neat also sell physical products and use the app as a promotional tool.

With Slow Fast Slow, you use a waveform to adjust the speed of the video. Anywhere the wave is above the center line, the video moves faster than normal. Anywhere it’s below that line, the video moves slower. Tap and drag each point to adjust them or long tap on the line to add a new point.

How to add slow motion to an iphone video

If you want a bit more control over your slo-mo videos, Slow Fast Slow is the way to go.
