One of the new features available with the iPhone 5s is the ability to record super slow motion video. The new slo-mo feature shoots video at 120 frames per second and allows you to select a potion of the video's timeline to be displayed in slow motion. Today, we’re taking a closer look at the new slo-mo feature, and we’ve even sacrificed a wine glass to do so. That’s right, we’re going to smash a wine glass for science. Well, maybe not science, but definitely for the sake of a good iPhone 5s slo-mo video test. Here’s our hands-on test with slo-mo:
If you can’t see the above video, please click this link.As you can see in the video above, slo-mo does a good job of capturing just about any moment in slow motion. It’s certainly not the best slow motion video we’ve seen, but it gets the job done. The Photos app allows you to adjust the length of the slow motion within the video. This leaves you with a smooth transition between normal speed and the slo-mo feature. The editing process is pretty simple and it produces some pretty interesting results. Check out our video overview of slo-mo above for more information. What do you think of the new slo-mo feature?
