Today, our phones can only display more than 30 frames per second. Phones like the Galaxy S10 can even record with the 4K front camera at 60 frames per second. The slow motion function has recently appeared on more and more devices ̵
1; but as you may have noticed, the quality of the feature differs from phone to phone.
With slow motion, various factors play a role. Specifications that are ignored for average users while recording videos in auto mode. In slow motion, however, these specifications are important to know. Because they determine the performance of the slow motion video, how fast this action can be that slows you down. Unlike regular video, it's not the higher resolution, as there are no resolution options available at some frame rates.
The most important thing for slow motion capture is frame rate. Slow motion videos are usually created by filmed an object at more than 30 frames per second (frames per second). Then the material is played back at 30 frames per second.
For example, if you record 60 frames per second, the material will play at 30 fps, and you would end up with 1/2 slow motion video. This differs from slowing down the 30fps footage to 1 / 2th speed in post-production, as this would show each image twice and effectively make the video 15 fps – while recording at 60 fps and playing at 30 fps would lead to same 1/2-speed video, but every picture would be a new picture.
So you want a camera with a higher frame rate. This specification is often referred to as "shutter speed" when it applies to still images rather than videos, but it is the same concept. Look for a phone that's at least 240 frames per second and make sure you have 1/4-slow motion when playing at 60 fps or 1/8 when playing at 30 fps. However, some phones can record up to 960 fps (marketed as "super slow motion"), such as the Galaxy S10 or Sony Xperia 1.
