    Has anyone tried the slo-mo camera. This is my first phone that has it, and, I guess I expected the audio to be muted. Instead it sounds like a horror movie. Really wild.

    I keep meaning to play with this! Nice to see it implemented well in a phone. I got some cool super slow mo footage at Niagara last year (on a gopro)

    Ignore the flickering. There was a light flickering and it really shows up in the slo-mo video. My son in a batting cage. And I don't know why I can only get 360p. :(

    I tried the superslomo, but after like 30 seconds my son's arm moved about 2inches in his pitch.

    That really is cool tech! And I can see how it can be a useful tool as well. I had to run to Verizon today with an issue with my watch. My guy there tried to sell me an Ultra. He sold me my Note just a couple of months ago and knew I was wanting the S20 at that time.
    I was a good boy and didn't even touch one... I knew better. :)

    Not really. I like the Note but I don't use the s-pen. I might use it more but I never think about it until it's too late. I normally upgrade every couple of years. I don't do contracts and my wife would kill me if I upgraded more often. :) I sure get excited about each new flagship release and spend a lot of time wishing I was playing with the new tech. I ALWAYS want.

    Well, since this is a slo-mo thread, I will note that super-slo mo has the mic muted. It actually add music like the old silent movies, but for some reason it didn't upload to YT.

    Reposted from the Dog Days thread.

    OK, here you go. This is my pup, just over a year old. Notice the rapt attention, proper sitting position, wide mouthed I ain't missing crap, and the huge eyes at the point of catching it.

    Now, my 11YO beagle, chilling nonchalantly on the floor, casually snatching it out of the air without her pulse wavering one bit.

    It is odd that the music didn't upload. Did you have music to choose from of is is a preset?
    I would have loved that super slo-mo when my son was playing sports. Talk about a great tool to anaiyze repetitive motions and correct / eliminate wasted motion.

    Did you take the above vids with the phone in a mount? I detect zero camera motion. I guess the time lapse seems to be over a longer span of time than actually transpired. Are the captures a given length or dictated by the user? Can you slo-mo using the telephoto options? What rez are the captures?

    Sorry for all of the questions but I'm fascinated with the tech.

    Dude, great questions, for reals.

    Weird about the music, though youtube is finicky about music. @Unforgiven you should use yotuube studio and add a music track to those. Youtube has a giant audio library. Would be hilarious with some suspenseful music, lol

    It defaults to a random choice, then you can tap a bar and choose. I chose one listed as royalty free or something like that. I played the videos and it was fine, uploaded to YT and it was gone.
    That's the plan. Those cage videos are just practice for me as there are four other coaches way over my ability helping him out. Timing on slo-mo is pretty straight forward. Superslomo is a pain (or I haven't unlocked the secret timing yet).
    All freehand. I was actually watching some old videos I took (since Youtube was moving on to the next video in my library) and these videos are way more stable.
    It looks like there are controls on regular slow motion where you can transition from regular speed to slow mo after capture, which would explain the audio being on. I haven't exactly dialed in how they work though.
    Slo-mo appears to be based on me starting and stopping recording where super slomo seems like a fixed time from either hitting record or optionally detecting motion.

    I haven't tried or measured. Uploads to YT are 1080, but I'm not sure that's definitive. I haven't had an opportunity to play with zoom yet at all.
    I'm learning to play with that. Was never much of a tuber, but it's growing on me. LOL

    Ha! It does that. I may look for some cool slomo shots and put on AF youtube channel.

    Holy smokes does it take time to add the audio. I've added tracks to each, but they are processing.

    It can take a LONG time. I've done it for 2 min long drone videos and wow, lol. Now I download the audio first and put it in during the edit.

    It is obvious that there is a lot more to slo-mo than I ever considered. I like the ability to convert a real speed capture into slo-mo.
    I tried to do the same decades ago with VHS and VCR. It was choppy but was helpful for my son's AB improvements. There was no slo-mo recording options on the suitcase size recorder I carried on my shoulder most of his youth. :)

    I'm very impressed!

    I don't want to confuse this issue. You can't convert real time video to slo-mo. It appears that for video recorded in slo-mo mode there is an option to have an opening and closing portion in realtime and adjust what portion is displayed in slow-mo. I'd imagine it would drop unnecessary frames where going from real time to slo-mo would require adding frames, hence it being choppy.

    Ah, my bad and you are no doubt correct in the need for additional frames to convert. Recording in slo-mo would fill my needs 99% of the time. It's that rare occasion that a random video captures something that would be hilarious if slowed down and viewed with such quality.

    Absolutetly. My shots above were either prepared (batting cage) or stages (dog treats). There will be times I want a long form video of a baseball game but may want a slo-mo of a K or a bang-bang play at first.

    Recording in 60fps would allow you to do that, though higher frame rate would be better. I have some footage in 240fps that looks slick, but haven't posted anywhere yet (done with a gopro)
