The video is educational also going over the basics of slow motion shooting with these cameras and comparing them with smartphones capable of doing slow motion.  Our reader Rommel alerted us to this video. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

GalaxyS7edgeBR

Mobile World Congress in Barcelona came and went and two phones are the real stars of the show. The Galaxy S7 by Samsung and the LG G5 which are both of the most anticipated Android phones ever.

The LG G5 disappoints by only being able to record at 1080p 60fps which tops it’s frame rate recording. This is even a step down from the LG G4 which recorded 120fps at 720p. The LG G5 as a slow motion phone is now off the table. Which leaves us with the Samsung Galaxy S7 and it’s near twin the Galaxy S7 Edge with a curved screen but same specs. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

Centriphone Video Turns iPhone into 360 Slowmo!

He is working on a behind the scenes video “Making Of” which will show how he was able to do it in terms of gear, the tether and the skills necessary to pull it off.   In theory a tether like this could be used with even more slow motion capable cameras at higher frame rates for an even greater effect. → Continue Reading Full Post ←

fps1000TripodSmall

In the update released to day Graham Rowan the creator of the fps1000 high speed camera project has made it known that the camera body has passed EMC for both CE and FCC certification.

What this means is that battery only cameras will be able to ship to Kickstarter backers as there is still some emissions that need re certification if used on a power supply.  Once that is corrected all models will be able to ship with power supply support. → Continue Reading Full Post ←
