How to fix slow motion iphone 5?
Apparently, SlowCam flooded the tech world recently and it looks like it has taken all the cake for the best slow-motion app for the iPhone. It’s simple, it’s easy and it’s one of the fastest ways to capture slow motion videos on your iPhone. The recommended phone is iPhone 5/5c although it works on iPhone 4/4s too. Slow motion iphone 5!!
SlowCam works pretty much the same way as iPhone 5s’s built-in slo-mo feature. It captures videos in higher fps to produce a result (at 30fps) where the video looks slowed down. Naturally, the results are great in iPhone 5s – where you can use the app to capture slow motion videos outside the native camera app – and also in iPhone 5/5c where the maximum frame rate is 60fps – a good value for producing slow motion videos.
Viewing the Slow Motion Video on iPhone
So the video recorded looking as normal, how do you actually view the slow motion video then? You’ll do that through Camera Roll in the Photos app:
Open the Photos app and go to Camera Roll, then find the videos
Select the slow-motion video you just recorded, slow motion video is indicated to by the tiny little circle icon in the corner of the video thumbnail
When the movie opens, you’ll notice two black handles on a blue slider line, directly below the scrubber – these are the slow motion controls (and yes they are different from the edit and crop yellow handles) – Simply drag those blue handles to where you want the slow-motion video to be (or expand it all the way if you want the whole video to stay in slow-motion)
Playing back the video will appear in slow motion where the black handle bars were chosen.
How to add Slow Motion Video Recording to Your iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c
The iPhone 5s records Slow motion at 120fps, although its something you use only for fun, its quite popular. Sadly even with alternative software you can only do 60fps on the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5c. To get Slow Motion in the iPhone 5 and iPhone 5 you need the help of “SlowCam foriPhone“. This app promises to gain hardware level access to your iPhone camera and grant you Slow Motion for just $1.99.
SlowCam is a pretty promising app with a plethora of features. Theres even a button for “Torch” so you get a bonus Torch Button as well in your $1.99 app, and for good measure too. The more frames per second you increase the less lighted the video footage will become. A room that appears well lit in 30 fps can appear pitch black in 240fps, so the torch is essential for recording in Slow Motion indoors.
Here are some good things about SlowCam:
- Background render: while the app processes the slow motion video you captured, you can continue recording other videos.
- Smooth transition between normal and slow-motion. Somehow, the effects are seamless.
- iPhone 5: 60fps and iPhone 5s: 120fps. The app automatically sets the best frame rate for recording.
- Save video in camera roll and also, share instantly (rendered) on various social channels.
