Slow motion videos have been possible on the iPhone since the release of iPhone 5s. Using the Camera app, you can easily capture Slo-Mo videos on your iPhone. You can record videos at 240 fps and play them at 1/4 of that speed, without sacrificing the video quality. In this tutorial, we will show you how to record slow motion videos on your iPhone using Slo-Mo mode, and edit them as needed.
How to Take Slo-Mo Video on iPhone
- Open the Camera app on your iPhone.
- Swipe right or left on the screen until you reach the Slo-Mo mode.
- To begin recording a slow motion video, point your camera at your subject, then press the red circle button at the bottom of the screen to start recording.
Tip: if you’d like to capture a still image while recording, press the white circle button to the left of the record button. A still image will be captured while the recording is active.
- Once you’re done, tap the record button again to stop the recording. The Slo-Mo video is automatically saved to the Photos app and its thumbnail will appear in the bottom left corner of the Camera app.
How to View & Edit Slo-Mo Video on iPhone
- When you’re done recording a Slo-Mo video on your iPhone, it will be saved automatically to the Camera Roll. Open the Photos app and go to Camera Roll.
- Find the Slo-Mo video that you just recorded and tap on it to open.
- To view the Slo-Mo video, press the play button in the center of the screen.
There’s a timeline at the top that allows you to edit the video. You can change the time when the slow motion effect begins and ends.
- The area where the bars have the largest gap is the part of the video that is in slow motion.
- Outside this area is the portion of the video that will be played at normal speed.
- To change the timing, slide the black bars to the left or right.
- Once you’re done editing, press the Done button in the corner of the screen.
How to Change the FPS Rate of Slo-Mo Videos
- Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Go to Photos & Camera.
- Under Camera section, tap on Record Slo-mo. (This option is only available in iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and above.)
- Here you can choose whether slow motion videos should be recorded at 120 fps or 240 fps.
