HTC One HDR and slow motion video samples vs normal mode comparison

HTC One HDR and slow motion video samples vs normal mode comparison
So far, only device with Sony's Exmor RS sensor like the Xperia Z and the Oppo Find 5 have been outed with hardwired HDR video capabilities. Next in sync with that trend is the HTC One, which will hit shelves with the high dynamic range video feature that combines different exposure settings on the fly to avoid over- or underexposed videos.

We shot some footage with the optically-stabilized UltraPixel camera on the HTC One in both normal and HDR modes, so you can have a rough idea about the difference the high dynamic range video makes. We also tried the slow motion mode, so you can check out the results in the slideshow below. Bear in mind that these display HTC One units might not be completely finalized for retail appearance, so we'll wait for the final unit to place a verdict.

at least in slow motion you don't see frames dropping ... HTC i am really dissapointed. Good luck getting back on top, don't count on me helping...

I think the first video was the best (and this has nothing to do with the fact that there was a hot girl in the video)..... :P

The funny thing is that it is for the use of 4mp ultrapixel that I amnt buying rhis phone. They claim they are trying to make people see the futility of the megapixel war but I am sure that by next year, HTC themselves will come out with a bigger ultrapixel phone (6 or 8mp?), so they should stop what they are doing and bring higer pixel camera be it mega or ultra-pixel.

Not bad but one things for sure, the optical image stabilization is not on par with the 920.

This is what I thought as I watched the videos. You can still see the jerkiness in the video and I do see some frames dropping. It's like someone took a 25fps video aand encoded it to 23.976fps.

Well according to other review sites HTC is aware of the issue with the camera frame rate dropping and plan to have it fixed by the time it comes out

So much for whoever said that HTC One is King of 2013.
