iOS 7 may offer 120fps slo-mo video recording

iOS 7 may offer 120fps slo-mo video recording
Another iOS 7 beta means more possible features that weren't announced at WWDC, but may be planned for future iOS devices. This time around, there are indications that Apple could be planning to include 120fps slo-mo video recording in a future device. The theory is difficult to test, because no current iOS hardware supports the feature. 

In the official iOS 7 unveiling, one of the throwaway features included on Apple's big slide of features was 60fps video recording; and, according to 9to5Mac, there is a new feature in iOS 7 called "Mogul" which will allow for 120fps slo-mo recording on compatible hardware. Currently, the iPhone 5 and iOS 6 max out at 30fps, although various apps can simulate higher frame rate recording. 

Depending on the resolution of the recording, 120fps would be able to capture extremely crisp and clear video in slow motion (as you can see below). So, Apple seems to be continuing its focus on iPhone camera quality, and it should be interesting to see if this feature becomes reality.

Hope that it would be created for Xperia Camera Add on for the Honami, since camera add ons will be supported by devs.

Big Effin' Deal... My Galaxy Note II films in 1080p at 30fps but has a Slow Motion feature that films at 1/2 times, 1/4 times or 1/8th times normal speed... Therefore at the slowest, it is filming at 240fps. The result is much smoother and slower looking action than the posted video. Get with it Apple... You are so behind the times.

The lg viewty had 120fps video capture with slo motion playback nearly 4-5 years ago.

So what! Where's that phone now? Clearly that wasn't enough to keep it competitive. Your breaks over, go back to work.

Wherea that phone now? That's possibly the most stupid comment you've posted yet. The phone is no longer around as its 5 years old obviously,that's a no brained. And it sold quite well in its day actually,the 5 mp camera and huge flash made it an instant hit.

Really like the new features on the iOS 7 like the 3D wallpapers and this new slo-mo feature

So you and anyone who gives you the green thumb up are essentially saying you like Android because those features are already available. I like how the flock still believes Apple is always on the forefront of innovation.

He didn't say anything about being at the forefront did he? Just talking about the new features of his ios of choice. Is ios yours if you're here or just trolling?

13. daddysbeenabadgirl

Posts: 157; Member since: Jul 26, 2012

He didn't need to say it. It's a pretty good assumption that he's another flock member based on the fact that he already likes the new feature before he has even had a chance to play around with the new OS. Just as my asumption that you are also a fanboy because you seem a little butthurt from my comment which is correct. =D

But you're a fanboy too, just from camp android. The definition revolves around a male who obsesses. You obsess about android, and you also obsess about iOS users. Ergo fanboy...butthurt fanboy.

I'm a tech fanboy not just Android. I prefer android but I own a little of everything Nexus 10, Note 2, Lumnia 920. I gave my kids a Nook HD because of the value but they used to have a BB playbook. Apple on the otherhand is overpriced, overvalued and behind in features.... FACT

No he's saying he likes iOS, just like you like trolling iOS articles and looking dumb. +1 Epicness1o1

It's not trolling it's the truth. I'm just calling it like I see it. I usally click and read every arctile when I have time.

23. bucky

Yes but specifically replying to someone because they were happy about their OS of choice is trolling that person. Guess I'm just calling it like I see it as well

In my original comment I never said anything about iOS being bad I'm simply stating the fact that you are a sheep because you seem to like these new feautres before you even had a chance to use them.

28. bucky

Posts: 3797; Member since: Sep 30, 2009

Again, he never said he used them. Simply said they're nice features. You're a sheep for getting butthurt over someone liking a different OS.

Nevermind Bucky. I'll debate with darkkjedii, at least he sometimes makes sense and has some comprehension.

I like those features too, as well as everything else I've seen from 7 so far. daddysbeenabadgirl isn't gonna stand for this. No way is he gonna allow iOS users to actually enjoy their time on PA. He won't hear of it.

Meh, you are also another Apple sheep. I don't go around calling anything great until I actually use it or tryt it. That's the differnece between a fanboy sheep like youself and a actual tech fan like me.

Ohhhhhh don't be mad bro. I'm a techie too, just not prejudice against people's choices dude. You attacked and insulted Epicness, just for saying he liked certain features. That's butthurt fanboy crap. Epicness never attacked or insulted you. Matter of fact he didn't even bother responding. Now that's a techie.
